Product Description

About the Compound Riser

This riser block is about 1″ thick and allows the compound slide to be used when riser blocks are in place on the lathe. In normal use, the Sherline compound slide is attached to the crosslide table on the “back” side of the part and the tool is placed in the holder “upside down” with the cutting edge facing downward. With the riser block in place, there is now enough clearance for the compound to clear the handwheel, so the compound/riser block combination is used on the “front” side with the tool facing upward. The riser includes the necessary T-nuts and hold-down bolts.


The improper use of machine tools and their accessories can result in serious injury. Before using this tool, thoroughly read the instructions and make sure you understand its proper and safe use.


Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
