A robustly made cast iron compound table for the Axminster Micro Drill or any other small drill. The work table, which measures 90 x 200mm, has three 8mm wide T slots for securing the work; it has a travel of 55mm either side of the central position, indicated by a scale along the front edge. Fore-and-aft travel is 70mm. Both leadscrews have a 1mm pitch and the control wheels have 50 sub-divisions, giving a movement of 0.02mm per graduation. The base has six 6.3mm diameter mounting holes and the overall height of the table is 72mm. A well made piece of equipment with many uses around the engineer's workshop.
|Travel X Axis||110mm|
|Travel Y Axis||70mm|

Design is weirdHave the Axminster Mirco Drill and bought this table to go with it. The lead screw nut has about 1.5mm backlash after 1 years use about 1 hour per day for modifying electrical jig parts. The table is quite heavy and doesn't shake with the rest of the machine, which is a good thing, but to me they have a left hand acme lead screw for the x axis (side to side) but a right handed lead screw for the y axis (front to back). All the other machines i've ever used (bridgeports etc) have had left hand acme threads so you wind in clockwise (righty tighty) and anti-clockwise to feed out or back towards your hand wheel. Don't understand how they used one thread for one and another for the other feed. Don't know if this is common or I got a bad one.

Let down by the description.The build quality and feel of the table is very good. Movement is smooth and without discernible play.
