The deluxe 5400-series mill is our most popular mill. It comes equipped with all of Sherline’s standard features upgraded to include a laser engraved 12" (305mm) solid aluminum base for 2" or additional Y-axis travel, laser engraved scales on the table and base, 2-1/2" (63mm) adjustable “zero” handwheel on the Z-axis and 2" (51mm) adjustable “zero” handwheels on the X- and Y-axes, a mill headstock spacer (P/N 1297) to provide more throat distance and a 1/4" drill chuck and drawbolt (P/N 3072).
Sherline mills feature precision machined dovetailed slides with adjustable gibs,
permanently lubricated spindle bearings, adjustable preload anti-backlash feed
screws and a high-torque 90 VDC motor with electronic speed control. Speed is
continuously variable from 70 to 2800 RPM without gear or belt changes. A second
pulley position is also available to provide extra torque at low RPM if needed.
*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.
(Model 5400 pictured here)
An additional $80 worth of accessories plus 2" more Y-axis travel and the convenience of laser engraved reference scales make the additional $100.00 over the cost of a basic Model 5000/5100 a very good buy.
OTHER OPTIONS: The 5400/5410 mill can be ordered in "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.
YOU MAY ALSO CONSIDER: P/N 5640/5645 Mill Column Base with 2000 Ram. These rigid columns are designed for those who have a 5400-series mill. Each comes with the 2000-series ram and gives the versatility of Sherline’s 2000-series mill column with it’s large work area and seven directions of movement. The tall column provides more Z-clearance.
