  • Minor tool gloat:

    Howsabout a low-miles Bridgeport 12" rotary table, in excellent shape, for $100?



    It'll go great with the free knee mill I got earlier this week.

    (Okay, okay, I'll stop gloating now... )

          Sir John would think you paid to much.

              Nice buy, but it is missing the bolt on combination lifting handles and hold down lugs.

              The main problem with a 12" table is the weight, and trying to manhandle one. The handles are a worthwhile feature to duplicate.

                YOU SUCK! I bought the same exact size & model for $75 but it was a couple years ago.

                  -Yep. It'd been "converted" to vertical- they'd bolted a wide flat plate to one end. When I got it, they'd bolted a bronze gear to it that looked exactly like an automatic transmission flexplate, but it was made of thin cast bronze. I suspect they'd set it up to drive some kind of geartrain for positioning- the mounting plate was only bolted on with the two 5/16" bolts that usually attach the handles, so I doubt they were doing any milling with it. (And the gear hadn't been machined.)

                  That's how it was set up when the place went to auction, and that's how the table was set up on the lot pallet.

                  Guy I got it from was after other equipment on the same pallet (among other things, two of the largest bench vises Wilton made at the time) and sold it to me cheap.

                  The handles were, of course, lost to history at some point. I'll fab up some new ones.

                    I thought your "minor tool gloat" might be more like:

                      There's a fine line between "you suck" what a great deal versus

                      You stole that sucker...
