    Homemade mill tilting table

    Hi everyone; Here is a pic of my latest project. It's a mill tilting table. sorry there is no drawings. most all my builds are just chicken scratches. If anyone needs a blue print will come up with something. Tilting tables are so handy you don't have to tilt the head and tram it back in again. It's .001 high in one corner but will take care of that problem when I get my next project done (homemade surface grinder). Should be finished shortly.Homemade mill tilting table-027.jpgHomemade mill tilting table-029.jpgHomemade mill tilting table-030.jpg

    Great idea and build that looks very versitle! The multiple holes give tons of combinations, and that table could work with all kinds of machines mills, lathes, saws, even just as a welding jig. Thanks for sharing this.

    Very well made and capable of many setup options. I like the clean look of the flat head socket screws. Did you also make the screwless vise and side clamps?

    Looks great from where I'm sitting, I know what you mean by chicken scratching drawings.

    I just got a compound cross-feed vice....this looks like a good base to mount it to. Gord
