About Tooling Plates

Like those used on many of our large production machines, the mill tooling plate solves two main problems. It not only protects your mill’s table from damage (while also adding additional stiffness), but it also provides an inexpensive, modifiable surface for clamping work that is as flat as the machine’s original table. The best way to hold a part more securely is to add more clamping points rather than over-tightening the points you already have. The mill tooling plate allows you to easily do this.

These fixtures are not limited to use on Sherline tools. Like the rotary table and some other Sherline accessories, they could be useful on larger machines in your shop as well.

P/N 3562 7″ x 13″ Mill Tooling Plate – Regularly $200.25, Save $40.05, Now only $160.20

This 7″ x 13″ tooling plate is a larger version of the standard 4″ x 10″ tooling plate P/N 3560. In addition to an extensive pattern of 10-32 holes on 1-inch centers, the plate has three T-slots milled on its long axis to provide additional mounting capabilities. 10-32 holes are also provided as needed for mounting the Sherline P/N 3700 or 8700 rotary table. Provided with the plate are six 10-32 x 7/16″ mounting screws and T-nuts. Also provided are four 1/4″ diameter steel pins that go in locating holes in the bottom of the T-slots to help quickly locate parts parallel to the axis of the plate. The plate is made from 6061-T6 aluminum that is accurately milled to 3/4″ thick, which is 1/4″ thicker than our standard P/N 3560 tooling plate. The surface is not anodized. Therefore, additional machining to the plate can be done to suit your unique needs.

This tooling plate was designed to give our customers a larger work surface. The plate was designed primarily for the 5800 NexGen mill. When mounted on the 5800, it will increase the usable machining area of the mill to a full 7″ x 13″ (that’s an additional 5.0″ in the Y-axis and 8.2″ in the X-axis).

NOTE: It can also be used on the 2000 mill, however, it limits the usable Y-axis travel to 2.85″.
