    I have an eighteen inch one. Not mine to sell. I had an eight or ten inch one but my brother took it to Fla. with him. On the smaller one I would mount square bar stock to extend the reach for odd or over size work. That might help you if you have a ro'tab too small for your work.

    Note that the OP said 12' as in 12 feet in diameter. Maybe a type but maybe not. I have seen them that large.

    Will it be used for one-off jobs where rotation and stops are variable, or is it more like an indexing table where a geneva drive or similar indexing would be appropriate?

    Yes I am looking for 12 foot at least, with indexing capabilities. I have seen a 14 foot one. Still looking. Mike

    Nope, I didn't realize (I read too fast, sometimes) it was 12 foot. I also have at least two blank spots in my vision. Can read a printed sentence and miss some letters in the print. Annoying at best, wrong answer to query can be the result.

    Hope you have some good lifting equipment Mike. As a for instance, a 12 foot disc of cast iron 4" thick weighs a little less than 17,000 Lbs

    What machine will you set this thing on?

    I will be setting it on the floor. I have one crane that can only lift 12,000 but I can get lifting equipment. I am going to use it in turning and drilling if I get the job, otherwise it would make a hell of a conversation piece to sit around and drink. Mike

    Maybe you should consider buying a big VTL?

    A big VTL would be great but the thing is what I would be turing would be mostly 1/2 and maybe 3/4 thick plate but then I need it for the indexing and drilling.
