PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT
Rotary Tables with 15/32" Through-Hole
Our industrial customers wanted a rotary table that could hold larger stock and stand up to everyday use. The through-hole on these new rotary tables is 15/32" (.469") compared to our standard rotary tables which have a 5/16" (.316") through-hole, and a Nickel-Teflon plating on the table surface gives the table a rust-resistant surface that is hard and has added lubrication qualities.

These new rotary tables are available in manual (P/N 3710), CNC-ready (P/N 3710-CNC), and full CNC (P/Ns 8711 and 8731) configurations, and include a chuck adapter (P/N 37097) that has a 3/4-16 thread for the chuck and a 5/8-24 thread for the rotary table. Read more...

He found that adding small coil springs beneath the clamps will hold the clamps in a raised position, so the vise can be slid right into the base. The springs then easily compress when the clamp screws are tightened. Read more...
