You can take the knobs off and couple them to stepper motors fairly easily, and thus have an automated xy stage for a fraction of the price of equipment designed for microscopy.
The KT70 moves 1 mm per turn of the handles, and a 115x microscope has about a .75 mm field of view, so there is plenty of precision and accuracy in the KT70 for this purpose. In fact, the KT70 has 20 hash marks per revolution, so each hash mark is 50 microns. From my measurements the table has the accuracy to repeatably hit these marks.
That does point out one issue for Americans - everything is metric. 50 micros = 0.0019 inches - about 2 thousandths.
If you google 'Nano Gigapan' you'll find our project, along with examples of using the KT70 in scientific applications.
Build quality seems decent and I have been enjoying doing some really light milling on the drill press. Cut some holes in a aluminum bar I could have never done otherwise. Way too light for steel even aluminum seems to be pushing it a bit.
The table is strong and the mechanism seems sturdy and well protected from general debris. The handscrew adjustment precision is excellent and it doesn't vibrate loose and out of position as some milling tables can do.
Overall a 5 star product to me.
An important cautionary statement: This is a SMALL X-Y table, it will not work well for large items and you cannot put a massive milling machine vise on it (like, for example, a Kurt D30 3" vise) it's just too small. If the Proxxon vise mentioned above is too small for you, I would recommend a 2" screwless toolmaker's vise, but nothing larger. Also, this table should be excellent for milling "easier" materials like brass, aluminum, plastic or jeweler's wax, and possibly mild steel if you are careful. But I wouldn't recommend it for tool steel, stainless or anything harder, it's not that the table is inadequate in it's own right, it's just too small and lightweight and you'll get too much vibration to get a smooth cut.
