    Have cut a few change gears, seems to work fine. It does have a little bit of backlash etc that I havenít bothered messing with, so when cutting gears I always lock the table locks for each cut.
    Mine wonít take a full length MT2 arbor so I turned up a short one.
    Itís a good exercise to turn one up, and not that big a deal.

    Hi Steve,

    Mine won't take a full length MT2 taper either ! In fact it only drops in about 40 mm or so. I did consider running a reamer down and opening it out a little but decided against it simply because it would have reduced or removed the clamping surface used to retain the taper in the bore.
    Best Regards:

    Hi there,

    I have a vertex HV8 8" rotary table. Having the extra table size makes things easier BUT they are very heavy too.

    Mostly happy with the quality considering the work I do.

    Mine has 3 T slots which bugs me no end. I would prefer 4! In fact if I was to choose again I would look for a brand with 4 T slots.

    Yuasa, although you may have to import from the US.
