View Full Version : a 4th axis... and quick

cutting a long story short. I need to knock up, beg, borrow or steal a combination of 3 jaw chuck connected to stepper

something like this
Sherline 8730 - CNC Rotary Table with Stepper Motor International Shipping | eBay (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sherline-8730-CNC-Rotary-Table-with-Stepper-Motor-International-Shipping-/261303545255?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cd6e7ada7)

problem is, there is very limited amount available in the UK... i havent been able to find any. My only option appears to be china... or canada both of which, there will be a large delay for postage. I really need something this side of THIS weekend

does anybody have / or know somewhere in the uk that sells / a rotary table connected to a stepper or any combination of the above that they want to sell... or even hire? for a rush job?

thanks in advance

Why not make your own? I made 2 so far... Just get a manual rotary table of eBay (RDG do them cheap).
Replace the handle with a T5 pulley, add a belt and a stepper. Done !
I can email you a picture of the one I made if you want ?
