    If you really need to do it that way you could always make your own here is mine on my 6" rotary table,made out of aluminum, so not real sturdy but you could make yours out of a material suited for the application.

        Indeed, very nice.

        I have already started the design phase for my own. I will use steel though and am aiming for a slightly lower profile.
        Clearly we have both gone down the same road on this problem.

          dvk,

          Have you considered making an accessory for you rotary table/cross-slide which clamps to the rotary table and puts a pointer over the center of rotation? Seems like that would be a big help in getting parts positioned quickly on the cross-slide.

          The thing I envision would have a vertical square rod perpendicular to the table. The lower end of the rod would be attached to a piece that keys on the table OD and is held in place with a screw/T-nut. A sliding clamp would hold the pointer at the correct height.

          Maybe you've already figured out something better.
