A friend gave me this rotary table on the conditions if I restore it I can keep it. So I thought “This looks like a job for me!”
Degreased, de rusted, disassembled, main bearing replaced, preload set, cleaned, oiled, painted, done! Wheew! Only took 30 min start to finish. @Abominog

30 minutes, wow!!!!
Not really 😝
I’ve probably got 20+ hours into that. It was almost garbage too. The main bearing was seized, and it was $900 for a replacement. Ultra precision, brass caged, upper and lower, double roller magicshit taper bearing. I found one on eBay new in the box for $70. Made by Norma. Saved the project. It has an electric rheostat that I have to fix next then it will be motorized with variable speed. Pretty excited to learn to use it.

Mike, what product or process did you use the take the rust off?
rust removal is all done with wire wheels. Big ones on bench grinders for the large areas, and small brush wire wheels on hand tools for small areas and nooks and crannies.

Man, you need to get a sand blaster! I love it so much more than wire wheels. It does a much better and easier job too.

It came out looking nice. You had me wondering on the 30 mins too! I send 30 mins looking at it trying to figure out what I am going to do with it! Very cool.

I have a sand blasting cabinet. It remover paint real good but everything has a dull look. It’s great for a parkerize finish, but I wanted shiney.

Mike ,
As any machine tool should be !! Matte finish does not contribute to accuray ,in my training i had to file two chunks of steel into Jo Blocks that when slipped together stuck to each other with no oil or anything else between them .I was trained Old School machining , during lunch the elders would file the image off a nickle without touching the raised rim !

Man, I like Jefferson. I would say file the image off a Dime! Only Socialist agree with erasing history and we might as well start with the first socialist president! :)

I see, blast then wheel, got it. That makes sense now. On the nickel, sounds like a job for a Dremel.
