Because of the tremendous number of operations that can be performed on a vertical mill, it is commonly regarded as the most important tool in the modern machine shop…the workhorse of the industry. Sherline Milling Machines can perform all of the tasks and operations that a large commercial machine can perform, including fly cutting, precision drilling and boring. Because the tool turns rather than the work, much larger non-round parts can be worked on a mill. The longer X-axis table (side-to-side) throw also increases the machine's versatility over that of the lathe. In addition to the basic three axes of movement, known as the "X" (left/right), "Y" (in/out) and "Z" spindle (up/down) axes, Sherline Mills also offer a headstock that can be tilted to either side to mill angled surfaces. The Model 2000 Mill offers four additional directions of adjustment, while the Model 5800 NexGen Mill offers three additional directions of adjustment for those who wish the ultimate in flexibility.
When the Sherline Lathe first came on the market over forty years ago, its use of rigid, extruded components meant miniature machine tools were no longer just toys for producing simple hobby projects. They could now be considered serious machine tools built specially to produce accurate miniature parts. Like its full-size counterparts, Sherline Lathes will perform all the operations you would expect, including turning, facing, boring, drilling, reaming, polishing and cutting tapers and threads with precision and ease. When used with a vertical milling column attachment, it can also be used for milling, fly cutting, drilling, and vertical boring operations as well.
Sherline tools are used throughout the world in every application from industry and production to hobbyists and model makers; wherever there is a need for small, high-quality, precision-machined parts in metal, plastic and wood, you'll find Sherline tools. Designed to be operated by any craftsperson with a "common sense" knowledge of mechanics, the skills of an experienced machinist are not required to get started and achieve great results. And, no matter how your interests may change or grow in the future, Sherline tools will adapt to suit your needs.
