About the Sherline 4″ Reverse Rotary Table
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.
Weight Limitations for Continual Use
We are stating the following weight limits for our rotary tables for continual use.
- Horizontal orientation—50 lbs.
- Vertical orientation—30 lbs.
- Vertical rotational torque—6 foot/lbs. (meaning it can lift a 6 lb. weight when suspended 12″ away from the center of the rotary table)
The rotary tables can hold more weight when they are not under a continual load. Click on the Video tab above to see examples of different weights and uses for our rotary tables.
- 2 35580 Hold-down clamps
- 4 30561 10-32 T-nuts
- 2 40330 SHCS, 10-32 X 5/8″
- 2 40510 SHCS, 10-32 X 3/8″

If you would like to convert your current rotary table to the reverse set-up you can send it back to Sherline and we can make the change for an $104.25 charge (includes parts and labor). Just fill out the RMA Request form to received instructions on how to send items back to us.
NOTE: Because components of the table are ground as a set during production, the P/N 3700-OP rotary table cannot be upgraded to the P/N 3700-CNC-OP version later on. A new rotary table with stepper motor worm housing must be purchased.
