    Default Another 'heavy metal' discovery

    So, here is another piece of heavy machinery - it has no markings, and looks like it needs other parts to achieve some kind of functionality!

    All thoughts and views welcomed...

    Just the husk of one - you can see through the table! I've never used a rotab with a "pass-through" top plate...

    I think the OP has struck "scrap" in his H-M search.

    Looks like a tilting rotary table, if price is right (ie cheap), I'd drag it home and clean it up.

    Looks like a chip stuck in T-slot to me, not a hole.

    You will have to point that out.
    I can not see through the top plate/table.

    Never question my spot judgements or questionable interpretations!

    [It makes me sad. ]

    Yeah, I'll go with a chip. Didn't zoom the pic, should have. Maybe I'm tired of being a free Mechanical Turk...

    Over here in the UK, that type of table without worm & wheel etc etc drive, were normally associated with engravers.

    (I'll see if I can find a Taylor Hobson or Scripta)

    TH type Taylor Hobson Horizontal Rotary Table - o 150mm - Sheffield Tooling Company

    Isn't the OP's real question, "Found a bit a tat round the ironworks skip, what can I sell it for?"
