Product Description

Purpose of the Sherline Tabletop Mill XY Bases

Each of our four mill sizes is available as an XY base. You can purchase the base of any of our vertical mills as an XY base if you already own a vertical milling column for use with your lathe. The XY base offers a sturdier base and a larger work area than the lathe. Lathe owners can then swap the headstock and motor/speed control from their lathe to the vertical milling column in approximately 60 seconds.

XY bases have also found their way into the industrial market and are used in various manufacturing setups.

If You Have a Standard Mill Column Base

Please note that milling column bases made before 1995 must be modified in order to work with this XY base. You can return your older vertical milling column to the factory to be re-machined and used with an XY base rather than purchasing the entire vertical milling machine (Contact us for pricing).

Vertical milling column bases made after 1995 do not need to be modified. This combination saves you the amount of money included in the cost of the vertical mill for the column but gives you the same machine minus the headstock and motor/speed control.
