Title: Per Yogi's Request - Tilt Table
Post by: toolznthings on May 23, 2018, 05:25:13 PM
Yogi asked about the tilt table I was using in my # 32 build so I took some pictures.

The table is a Yuasa brand I purchased years ago. I modified the base to allow me to use it in my mill vise for a convenient setup.
The dial on the table is graduated in 5 minute increments. A worm gear drives the table position and the side screws locks the gib to
hold position. I made a couple of sub plates for the table to aid in setups.

Handy tool.  :)  :ThumbsUp:

That is a very nice tilt table, especially with the ability to set the angle via the crank mechanism. Thanks for the pictures of it.

Thanks for putting up the details about the table, Brian!  :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp:
This table seems to me much more rigid than other tilting tables I've seen.

That's nice Brian,

Knowing the quality of Yuasa tools I bet it wasn't inexpensive.

If I didn't have a rotary table I'd be looking that up to buy one. :)

Gotta be some neat things you could do by combining the two.

Apparently not available any longer. No doubt pricey if it was and under the yuasa brand.

Bummer. It struck me as a very flexible tool.
