A rotary table is a device that aids in precision work mainly in manufacturing industries. There has however been little research done in the development of rotary table for domestic use. The major trend has been to design rotary table to be used in machineries. In view of the above, a prototype of a rotary table for domestic use was designed and developed. The rotary table was developed using a PIC16F84 microcontroller, a synchronous step motor, transmitter and receiver circuit and also a power circuit, an assembly code was written. The design is cost effective, uses readily available materials and finds economic usage in homes, offices and can be used by the elderly.
