    Default trying to rebuild a trroyke rotary axis

    i just got this thing off craigslist and are in the process of undoing the decade that it sat for.
    i got the end caps off and new bearings coming soon.
    for the life of me i cant seem to get the backing plate off.
    i assume it is just the 2 little spanner wrench holes towards the center of the plate?
    i have made a pretty stought wrench for this and it uses 2 cobalt 5/16" drill bits for the dowels.
    so far after heating and spraying with oil it is cracked loose but i cant get the rest of it to start turning.
    it is right hand thread
    if i new what the other side of the plate looked like i would drill and tap in two new 1/2" threads for bolting on a wider bigger bar.....

    I cant tell from the photo but I would expect it to be the smaller ring on the outside that would hold it together?

    BTW, Troyke still exist: Rotary Milling Machine, Rotary Tables, CNC Rotary Tables, Precision Rotary Tables, Troyke Rotary Tables | Troyke Manufacturing

    Give them a shout and ask about how your model is disassembled.
