    Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

    It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

        Isn't it a rotary table for a shaper? I googled it before getting interested in it and found pictures of it bolted to an atlas shaper table. I'll see if I can find the images again.

        edited: here you go, it was in the ad.



        the ad went on to say "The right picture shows it in the stored position bolted to the side."

          I bid on that Atlas rotary table last night YOD, but dropped out at $200:

          http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=110215518460

          It's a pretty crappy rotab with no indexing. For that price I'd rather buy a little Vertex rotab with the sector plates.

            Did you read the entire ad through? I thought he said it was in new condition with crisp index marks? I petered out at $160 but now that I know you're looking too, I'll have to cash in some of the pop bottles I been saving I was going to wait till the deposite fee doubled and then sell off. This could get ug-ly !

              Right, it was in new condition. What I meant was that the Atlas rotab itself was a pretty primitive design. Unless you're an Atlas collector, I'd rather spend the $240 on a "real" rotab with a crank, sector arm, and dividing plates.

              Same deal with the Atlas dividing head that they made for this shaper: it's really basic, but sells for hundreds of dollars for the collector's value. For a lot less $$$ you can mount a little Hardinge 5C indexer...

                      Well Wolfie, let me try to answer you with all the sincerity, compassion and devotion to pen that I can muster. (I'm going to reserve shipping out the flying fickel finger of fate for a later round should it become necessary !)

                      Here it is:

                      "Yes, I wrote that, as any fool can plainly see"

                      I was having a very rare off day. You ever have one of those?

                      I thought a rotab for a shaper might have different qualities like a lower profile. Now am thinking they may not.

                        The Atlas shaper vise is definitely very low profile, but like you say, the Atlas rotab doesn't seem particularly low-profile.

                        I was wondering about the NOS Atlas rotab in the auction you posted not having a handle, but I checked the Atlas catalog, and it didn't come with a handle/crank (?) -- they show the operator using an adjustable wrench. Hmmm.

                          Hard to call it a rotary table, at least in the usual sense. It doesn't have any gearing to rotate it, it's more of an indexing table. There are holes every 30 degrees around the outside edge, a pin drops into these. There are also degree markings and two bolts through the bottom to lock the table at any arbitrary position. On the whole, probably of more interest to collectors, especially given the price they go for.
