Sherline components can be combined in many ways to create custom tooling to meet your special needs. In addition, we can design and manufacture custom components to make tooling for unusual needs that go beyond the scope of our normal parts stock. Below are some of the custom machines we have put together for customers who had needs that could not be met by off-the-shelf parts.

Router Boss Modification

The Router Boss is a machine for which we made a few parts (modified indexing head, bed, and tailstock). This customer had us modify his bed a bit so he could mount our headstock, motor, and speed control to it. So, he has a Sherline Lathe mounted underneath his Router Boss, not just an index table and head.

Scott Bernstein wrote, “Here are a couple of pictures from my Router Boss. You did a great job machining my parts, and it was incredibly easy to set up. It works great! I am using the tailstock and headstock riser blocks and the Sherline self-centering headstock chuck. This setup ought to be standard equipment.”
