hello all,

Curious if anyone has a 4/5 axis rotary table I keep seeing on eBay. Looks like they go for around 500 but of course I'd want to try and build my own. How well do they work and any other information would be appreciated.

Looks like it will work OK for engraving/light milling. I would think that the biggest problem would be finding CAD software that will generate 4/5 axis toolpaths. Then will your controller run 4 or 5 axis?
