Leveling Table with Ergonomic Adjusting Mechanism

      A leveling table with an ergonomic adjusting mechanism is
disclosed.

      A manually operated tilt table used for positioning memory
disks for test purposes uses speed reduction units and cams and
followers for accurate leveling relative to the testor requirements.
The table is operated using hand cranks which eliminates ergonomic
concerns of carpal tunnel syndrome.  Turning the left-side crank
tilts the table front-to-back, and turning the right side crank tilts
the table left-to-right.  This simple yet accurate design eliminates
the need for more costly motor-driven designs.
