6" Rotary Table, Horizontal/Vertical
Fine grade cast iron
Precision ground hardened worm
Comes with Index Plates and Tail Stock
For the sale price the set is pretty good. There is a considerable amount of backlash in the table and when cutting parts with a 4 jaw chuck on top there is a little flexing side to side, but it's reasonable.
One issue I had was the locking handles were threaded into holes that were drilled too large to hold a proper thread. First time I used the handles to lock the table for a cut one of them stripped out. I suspect that the manufacturer was tooled for metric and these are 1/4" handle threads so they likely used the wrong drill bit. I ended up tapping it to 3/8" and using some socket head cap screws instead of the handles provided. Used it about 10 times over the holidays with good results. I haven't used the accessory plates or tail stock yet but they do look nice.
I find this rotary table and indexing setup to be very well made and easy to use, the manual that came with the setup is easy to understand and use. As well it provides a quick to use guide that speeds up setup and gives one quick information on which plate to use and how many turns and holes needed to produce the product desired. The rotary table is solid and very well made no backlash was noted and I found the use of the table smooth and fluid in motion, all in all a very well made piece of equipment I am very Happy with.
