The 5000-series mills are Sherline's most economical mills and would be a good starting point for any miniature machine shop. They feature a solid 10" (254mm) aluminum base, precision machined dovetailed slides with adjustable gibs, permanently lubricated spindle bearings, adjustable preload anti-backlash feed screws on the X- and Y-axes, two 1-5/8" (41mm) laser engraved aluminum handwheels, one 2-1/2" (63mm) laser engraved handwheel with thrust bearings, and many other features found only on the best commercial machines.
*New Mill Features...
All Sherline mills now include oil reservoirs on the X/Y axes and the Z axis to help keep critical parts lubricated. These were initially developed for CNC machines that run constantly for hours on end but can benefit manual machines as well. Another new feature is the brass leadscrew cover that keeps chips off the rear of the Y-axis leadscrew.

OTHER OPTIONS: The 5000/5100 mill can be ordered in “DRO” (digital readout) or “CNC ready” configuration ready for the application of stepper motors and CNC controls. In this configuration the standard handwheels are supplied so that they can be used on the rear shaft of a dual shaft stepper motor for optional manual control.
