Hi Bill

SL milling table is 127x76 11mm thick with 3x8mm Tee slots that are 3x13 at base.

There are 4x6mm fixing holes counter bored 11mm diam for 6.9 depth, starting at 24mm from end then 50 from end (so 26mm centres)

2nd row 25mm centres from those above. So 24x26mm rectangle with holes at corners.

Will PM you about a drawing.

Just checked the dimensions given by Emgee above against my own Unimat 3 milling table. That table would work on my Unimat 3, even though the mounting holes are a slightly different spacing. It would work because the cross slide of the Unimat 3 has a T slot, so the slightly different hole spacing would not matter. The table mounts either across or along using two of the holes.

There does seem to be a difference in the T slots. Mine are 4mm where the ones given by Emgee are 3mm, eg both the length of the stem of the T and the thickness of the top of the T. So my T nuts would not fit into Emgee's T slots. This would only matter if you already have the same T nuts as me.

Emgee - thanks but Inbox is empty ?

All ok though as John Olsen has confirmed it will fit

Thanks you both for your help.

Unimat 3 ones are not as common on ebay but db are so I can buy one now without worry.

The only thing if the hole spacing is different it that it may not fit on teh bracket that allows it to be used as a drilling table around the column as that has fixed hole spacing.

Best regards
