New CNC Mill Feature

The Mill Accordion Way Cover Set (P/N 5090) now comes as a standard feature on all CNC Mills. The way cover protects your Y-axis leadscrew and ways from chips and coolant. The way covers take up only a fraction of an inch of Y-travel while adding life to your machine by protecting the only exposed leadscrew on the Sherline mill.
