    Default old Mews rotary table

    I think i did okay buying an old Mews rotary table and 4 jaw geared chuck
    I couldn't find much info online but maybe someone could help with a couple questions i have

    I cant figure out how to remove the worm gear assembly that turns the table?

    The machined surface the table rides on has an oil groove. This is fed from oil cup on the side. The oil cup is at the same level as the machined surface. How does the oil get to the contact surface?

    There is a spring loaded ball on the table surface that is used to oil the centre bearing spindle. Do i need a special tool to get the oil in there?

    Thank you

    I have never seen Mews, but there was a USA importer of Japanese tooling that used the trade name NEWS.

    Looks like the bearing retainer for the worm is attached to the base with several screws.

    Some machines used wool yarn in oil passages to get oil to travel uphill by capillary action. In this case, the top of the oil cup is above the mating surface, so no magic is required.

    Common pump-type oil cans that have pointed ends can easily get oil into a ball-type oiler.
