    Default 8" rotary table w/cross slide

    I believe this is a Palmgren product in somewhat rusty but very serviceable condition. If it has been used it appears to be very little. $700 plus shipping from California

    The X-Y slides should be on top of the table
    not below. The design is backwards.
    These were aimed at the crowd fascinated
    with trying to mill on their drill press,
    which they always discover, never works out.
    You will probably sell it to an emotional machinist
    before you sell it to a practical machinist.
    Not trying to poop on your ad, but trying to
    help align your expectations.

    I disagree on the usefulness of these.

    If you use it on your drill press for DRILLING and not milling, they are very useful.

    You can drill evenly spaced holes in a line or a circle.

    Disadvantage is that they take a lot of vertical room, which is a problem on benchtop drills, but not so much on floor-standing drill presses.

    I would look at pricing for sold items on ebay - your price is more than double the highest priced one sold.

    It can be useful if you only have a drill press. If you have a milling machine such as a Bridgeport it's certainly not something I'd be chasing down. Most of the guys here probably do have BPs, might sell better elsewhere, but you never know.

    With shipping charges seeming to spike lately you probably should list the weight.
