The reverse rotary table is perfect for using on the tilting angle table. The reverse mount allows access to the handwheel from the front of the machine (see photo below). If you used a standard rotary table in the previously described set-up the handwheel would be mounted facing the backside of the X-axis.
NOTE: When the worm housing is reversed to the opposite side, a clockwise rotation of the handwheel or stepper motor will result in a counter-clockwise rotation of the rotary table.
The Nickel-Teflon plating came about after requests from our laser engraving customers. They wanted a rotary table that had a larger through hole to which you could mount our chucks.
This version of the Sherline rotary table has a Nickel-Teflon plating on it because it was designed to be used in an every-day production environment. This gives the table a rust resistant surface that is hard and has added lubrication qualities.
The table is 2″ high and 4″ (100mm) in diameter. The main components have been machined from solid bar stock steel, and the complete unit weighs seven pounds. The table has been engraved with a laser, giving sharp and precise lines every 5°, numbered every 15°. These lines are calibrated with the 72-tooth worm gear that is driven by the handwheel or stepper motor. The handwheel is divided into 50 parts, making each line on the handwheel 1/10°. This allows a circle to be divided into 3600 increments without interpolation. Seventy-two revolutions of the handwheel rotate the table one revolution.
For all other details and specifications of this rotary table, see the instructions tab above for P/N 3700 or P/N 3700CNC.
NOTE: Because components of the table are ground as a set during production, the P/N 3710 rotary table cannot be upgraded to the P/N 3710-CNC version later on. A new rotary table with stepper motor worm housing must be purchased.
- The through hole on this rotary table is 15/32″ (.469″)
- The chuck adapter has a 3/4-16 thread for the chuck and a 5/8-24 thread for the rotary table
- There is a .6485″ c’bore at the entrance of the 5/8-24 thread which is used to locate the adapter concentric to the rotary table (See Figure 1 below)
NOTE: In order to use this rotary table with our Tilting Angle Table (P/N 3750) you will need to drill out the 10-32 center hole to 1/2″ diameter. This will allow the maximum diameter of stock to feed through the rotary table (See Figure 2 below).

We offer two types of 3D object files: .igs and .stp.
- To view .igs files you need an IGS viewer. CLICK HERE to download a FREE IGS viewer.
- To view .stp files you need a STP viewer. CLICK HERE to use Autodesk’s FREE A360* online file viewer. STP is a file extension for a 3-D graphic file used by CAD software. STP stands for STandard for the Exchange of Product model data. STP files are used to store 3D image data in an ASCII format, following the standards defined in ISO 10303-21: Clear Text Encoding of the Exchange Structure.
- Each 3D file format has been compressed into a .zip file to save file space. Click on the .zip file link below to download it to your computer.
- Extract the .zip file to the drive location of your choice.
- Open the .igs file using the IGS Viewer, or open the .stp file using the A360 Autodesk online viewer.
*NOTE: There are also other free STP viewers that can be downloaded directly to your computer.
