this table unit was given to me, I took it all apart,IMGP0031.JPGIMGP0032.JPG cleaned it up a bit,, the shaft was stuck in it's guide, that was freed and all seems work very smoothly now.. I'm looking for some more info about it,, it is a tad large for my bench mill

I have two South Bend VTB-101 tables just like yours -----my top one swivels on the lower one and has a side attachment on the side of it.---each of my tables are 1 1/2 inches tall by 4 inches wide and 8 7/8 inches long---I don't have a base with mine but the bottom one has tapped holes for mounting---hope you find more information about it. mine has round holes instead of the standard T slot--so I will need to make some special one half inch round hold-down nuts and thread them for 1/4 inch bolts and some holes threaded for smaller bolts that would allow to clamp pieces that were not flat to surface----maybe someone else knows the reason for the round holes under the table slots----does your unit have round holes under the slots? ---Dave

It would appear you're missing the top table, hence the index plate on top of the table you do have. They were sold as XY tables if I remember correctly.

Here's a link to onb that has both tables.

I'm still deciding on what I'm going to do with it.. my current project may require a small (4") rotary table..
