Re: Milling Table


Little machine shop makes a small accessory milling table. 

It's less than $40. While I have not adapted it to my 10L,  I have used it on a #4 Burke horizontal  mill, which had only a single slot on the table. 


Here I ma cutting a LH gear for the thread dial on my old SB-405. 

I think, if you remove the compound and make a spigot adapter you would not loose very much room under the spindle. 
One caution the T-Slots are metric dimensions.

Scary to watch but really cool.
And yes, sometimes the best way to hold something on the lathe is with a good solid faceplate.
