i bought one at sears in 1984. i turned cue sticks,table legs,lamps and all kinds of hobby items on it. it had an 26 place index adjuster and cable drives on the sled that router mounted upon. not truly accurate yet close enough to adjust before i got in too deep. my uncle has it turning handrail items for the church right now and it's been a couple of years ago so whenever i viewed yours it rang a bell,i need to call him!
