The Sherline vertical mill can be purchased without the headstock and motor/speed control. This allows lathe owners to swap the headstock and motor/speed control from their lathe to the mill in approximately 60 seconds. This package offers a savings of about 28-30% when compared to the price of our standard mill.
About the CNC-Ready 12″ XYZ Base
The XYZ base is the same base used in our 5400-series mill. It has a 12″ base with stepper motor mounts installed on the X-, Y- and Z-axes ready for the installation of stepper motors, and laser engraved table and base. (Stepper motors not included, see the STEPPER MOTOR page.)
Travel: X=8.65″ (220 mm), Y= 5.0″ (127 mm), Z=6.25″ (159 mm)
CNC-Ready XY Bases
Any Sherline mill XYZ base can be ordered with stepper motor mounts installed on the X-, Y- and Z-axes ready for the installation of stepper motors. (Stepper motors not included, see the STEPPER MOTOR page.) Included with the CNC-ready XYZ bases are three low mass 1-5/8″ handwheels. If using Sherline or other dual shaft stepper motors, the handwheels can be mounted to the rear shaft to provide manual control in addition to CNC control. (NOTE: Manual control is not possible on CNC-ready bases until a dual shaft stepper motor has been installed. Handwheels cannot be installed directly onto the stepper motor mounts.) These slides have been popular items in the industry to control movement in small production line processes, and the addition of computer control extends the possibilities for automation. Travels of each of these CNC-ready bases are the same as for the manually controlled versions shown above.
NOTE: CNC-ready machines cannot be operated manually unless double-shaft stepper motors are installed.
Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
