Model Number
Turntables differ from gear driven Rotary Tables in that Turntables can be spun quickly by hand. Anywhere within the 360, there can be a 12 range of fine (knob controlled) adjustment. They also cost less. Table features include an easy-to-read engraved 360 scale, 6 minute (0.1º) resolution, maximum horizontal load capacity of 200 pounds (90 kg.), and rugged black anodized finish.
How they work
Unlike Rotary Tables, Turntables do not use a worm and gear design. Instead, they use a spring-loaded tangent screw drive for fine adjustments. With the Lock Knob released, the turntable is freely rotated by hand to the approximate target position. Turning the Adjust Knob engages a tangent screw driven against a spring-loaded yoke, allowing you to fine tune your position to 0.1 degree. See photo. The spring will resist up to 14 oz-in of rotational torque.

Typical applications include mounting and rotation of test specimens, cameras, transducers, sensors, mirrors and other components. These tables cannot be motor-driven (go here), or vertically mounted except for light (< 1 lb.) loads, and are not recommended for strong pulling (tensile) loads. This info in PDF.
