Default Rotary Table Identification

Hello,
Could someone please identify my rotary table.
It does not have a name stamped on it, perhaps it came with a milling machine.
I can only describe it.
What I know is it came from the then "West Germany"
It was owned by an instrument maker.
The only stamping is the number 618 shown in the photo.
I believe it is old but don’t know how old.
The black round handle and crank handle are black bakalite.
The table is 280 mm in diameter. with 4 x 4 slots 14 mm.
The wheel and pinion are hardened and ground and sit in an oil bath, the level of which is indicated by a glass tube sight glass.
All screws are machine cut, as are all the screw slots (Milled).
The filler cap screw has a tiny air hole and is a beautiful piece of engineering.
A number 3 Morse (I think) taper in the center.
The graduations are cut and numbers stamped.
The dial on the winder is in three sections of 0 to 100.
The ratio of the table is 120 : 1
Small parts Nickel plated
Words on the bakelite handle are "NICAFIL 1761/1" very small about 1 mm high.

Unless you need parts I wouldn't worry about the origin. It looks like a beauty and a 'keeper'.

Default Rotary Table

Hello Everybody,
Well I had a lot of lookers, but it may be the wrong site to post this.
I also posted it on Model Engineers Workshop.
Guess what?
I had lots of people wanting to give it a go as to its ID.

Two people found it, and posted photos to prove their claim...
Its a Schaublin, Woo Hoo! I am over the moon, no wonder I love the feel of it.
It a beautiful thing.

There is so much to Engineering, there is no end to it, these sites are wonderful
being able to get everybody together and give some advice to someone who need it.
Noel
