Re: Rotary Table
- When using a large rotary table on a 4-slot table, why not bolt it
down using slots 2 and 3, with the centre of the rotary table on the
centre of the mill table?
Won't that solve the problem? Or will the rotary handle foul the
Just a suggestion. I'm happy with a 6" rotary on a Craftex milldrill.
- 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.

table on a G3358 or G1006?
