Re: [mill_drill] Rotary Table
- magnetic chuck on the lathe..........or a facsimile of one with some strong magnets and the faceplate if the genuine article not available. Think aluminium stubs with the magnets set into the working face, faceplate attachment / adjustment screwholes to the faceplate on the reverse. Three really strong magnets would be ideal, six if something like speaker magnets used----- Original Message -----From: Bill GereghtySent: Wednesday, November 01, 2006 1:10 PMSubject: [mill_drill] Rotary Table
Hi Everyone - just purchased a 6" Rotary table and want to mill some
simple discs out of 1/4" mild steel - 3" diamiter -on my RongFu 31 Mill
Drill - any advice as to securing the square stock to the table without
bolting it through the middle -I don't want holes in the discs - Many
Thanks, Bill - wfg4u@...
- I also have a RongFu RF31, and bought the Phase II 6" hor/ver table, and have found it very useful. There have been times when I wish it had a larger diameter, but seldom would 2" additional diameter (only 1" radius) help much. My concern was for Z axis movement, you certainly will have more with the 6". YMMV, good luck with the decision.Wade----- Original Message -----From: corey rennerSent: Monday, June 25, 2007 12:06 PMSubject: Re: [mill_drill] Rotary TableI bought a Phase II 8" hor/ver table for my real Rong Fu RF31, this is identical to the Grizzly G1006 machine. The RT fit well on the machine, it overhung the rear of the mill table about an inch. The ONLY downsides to the 8" RT is moving it on and off the table because it weighs about 85#, and no free shipping from Enco for the same reason. I have since upgraded to a larger mill, and the 8" RT is serving me well on the new machine as well.

I'm looking at rotary tables for a Grizzly 3358 machine. I would
prefer an 8" table, but the folks at Grizzly say its too big to fit on

table on a G3358 or G1006?
