    Tilt Table For Mill Vise

    Over on the was posted, and at 27:54 there is a simple tilt table being used. Several Hobby Machinists posted their versions of this table, and here is mine.

    My plate is 3/4" aluminum, 6" x 8.5", tapped 1/4-20 holes 1.25" OC and 0.2505" reamed holes, also 1.25" OC, offset from the other holes. The large roll is 2.725" in diameter. I also added an additional adjustment roll. It is movable in 1.25" increments.

    Could you explain: "added an additional adjustment roll. It is movable in 1.25" increments"

    I assume it is a screwed shaft where does the 1.25" increments come in?

    I am in the process of building one seems like the simplest tilt table I have seen.

    Thank you, for the post!!

    If you look at the first photo, you can see counter bores that are in the middle of the other holes. These are what bolts the cylinder to the bottom of the plate. I put them at 1.25" increments. I don't think they are absolutely critical, and they may not even be useful, but I added them since it was easier to do all the holes in 1 setup. I also put a slight flat on the bottom roll so that it would snug up easily.
