Vertex Rotary Table

I recently received a Vertex rotary table and was curious as to what
the consensus is on these numbers gotten off of the enclosed
certificate. Would these be considered average quality numbers?:

5) True running of center hole

Sounds average for a decent rotary table when new. Now the big question is..are you going to be using this 8 hours a day, 7 days a week? If not..dont worry about the materials holding up over years.
If you are..then perhaps a better US made rotary table may be better.
Ive got one identical to yours btw..and it works just fine, and has held up for the past 3 owners just fine
One could not be a successful Leftwinger without realizing that, in contrast to the popular conception supported by newspapers and mothers of Leftwingers, a goodly number of Leftwingers are not only narrow-minded and dull, but also just stupid. Gunner Asch
