About the 13″ Crosslide and Saddle Assembly

This 13″ lathe crosslide is for those who want to convert their Sherline lathe into a “Chucker Lathe” or gang-tooling lathe. The 13″ crosslide can hold multiple gang-tooling tool posts.

The 13″ lathe crosslide is .870″ thick (as opposed to the standard 6″ crosslide, which is .625″ thick) and is not recommended to replace your lathe crosslide for normal use. The extra thickness of this crosslide requires a headstock riser plate (P/N 1295) to put tooling on center with the headstock. When you switch to a gang-tooling setup using the 13″ crosslide along with a riser plate, you will no longer be able to use your tailstock! We make a riser for the headstock but not one for the tailstock, so parts cannot be turned between centers. Some of our other accessories, such as the thread-cutting attachment, can also not be used with this thicker crosslide.

The CNC-ready crosslide and saddle assembly includes a CNC leadscrew, a standard 1-5/8″ handwheel, and a stepper motor mount.

About CNC-Ready Crosslides

Sherline CNC-ready lathe crosslides have factory-installed stepper motor mounts in place of the handwheels and are ready to apply 23-frame size stepper motors and computer numeric controls (CNC). CNC-Ready crosslides cannot be used until stepper motors have been installed.

Sherline recommends using dual-shaft stepper motors to apply handwheels to the rear shaft for manual control. With that in mind, handwheels for each axis are included with the machine, although you can’t use them until you install stepper motors. Sherline offers high-quality stepper motors and CNC options.
