We are able to offer a Rotary Table of the same basic dimensions as the Thomas design but with the inclusion of a worm gear. One graduation of the worm's resetable dial advances the table by just 0.1°, providing considerable accuracy and a powerful feed when when advancing the table against cutting loads.
The iron base measures 4" x 4", a good match for any popular vertical slide. The worm assembly is retained in the base by a single pad bolt, thus the Ø4" steel table can be readily taken out of gear when hand operation is desired. Designed with easy construction in mind, the Geared Rotary Table is equally at home on a lathe or a milling machine. The photograph shows the geared Rotary Table with the worm box removed and a 'Tommy Bar' fitted for hand operation.
Our kit includes all necessary iron and steel, the 60:1 worm and wheel pair, fasteners, drawings and construction notes. Material and details are also provided to produce a chuck adapter to allow the table to accept 3 and 4 jaw chucks.
