New from dPP Engineering Work with your Sherline controller seamlessly from your Windows®-based Laptop/Desktop USB port (1/6/17)

Use your own laptop or desktop via the USB port with Sherline’s CNC controller P/N 8760
This new controller supports both MACH3 and MACH4 software, whereas previous controllers were dedicated to one software or the other. Moreover, the execution speed is faster than before, especially for MACH4 users. Additional features, such as threading and gear cutting, are easier to implement (spindle speed decoders and PWM are required for the latter).

This USB device is designed specifically for use with CNC machines with existing LPT (parallel printer) port-based control signals input connector. It allows for a quick migration from the LPT to the USB bus. Although small, the device is adjustable and requires no complex knowledge of device programming.

4″ Reverse Rotary Table P/N 3700-OP

The reverse rotary table is perfect for using on the tilting angle table (P/N 3750). The reverse mount allows access to the handwheel from the front of the machine. If you used a standard rotary table in the previously described set-up the handwheel would be mounted facing the backside of the X-axis. It is also available in CNC-Ready configuration, P/N 3700-CNC-OP.

5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Weight Scale P/N LM5

We made this scale at the request of several of our customers who own fifth-wheel trailers. This scale is a modified version of our original Trailer Tongue Weight Scale. However, it is specifically designed to attach to most fifth-wheel trailer hitches. The piston has also been modified to accept the standard 2-13/16″ diameter kingpin and the locating pin is for hitches that accept the standard 2-13/16″ kingpin.

NEW PRODUCT! (February 2016)

Riser Plate for 8″ Crosslide P/N 1294
We designed the headstock riser plate P/N 12940 at the request of several of our customers who replaced our 6″ crosslide with the thicker 8″ crosslide P/N 60880 (manual) and P/N 67036 (CNC). Most of these customers are using our lathe as a chucker lathe with gang-tooling. By using this riser plate, we have raised the headstock to match the additional thickness of the 8″ crosslide. Therefore, all of our standard tool posts will now be on centerline with the headstock.

NEW PRODUCT! (January 2016)

Rigid Mill Column Bases for 2000 Mills P/N 5605 (Short), P/N 5606 (Tall)
For those who want the versatility of Sherline’s 2000/2010 mill column with it’s large work area and multiple directions of movement but have experienced unwanted column rotation during extreme machining loads on the 2000 mill, this new column offers another option. The one-piece column absolutely prevents that from happening, although you do give up the ability to rotate the column ram from side-to-side.


NEW PRODUCT! (November 2015)

NexGen Vertical Mill P/N 5800/5810
Starting in November, 2015 Sherline Products is proud to introduce its latest Vertical Milling machine. With the increase of popularity of Sherline mills in industrial, laboratory, and school training environments the need to produce larger parts has led to the development of an extended capacity milling machine. Sherline’s NexGen Mills are available in Manual, CNC-Ready, and full CNC configurations.

The new NexGen Mill has the following standard features:

  • Extra-Rigid Column Base
  • 15″ Extended Column Bed
  • 18″ Extended Mill Table
  • 18″ Mill Base
  • 7″ x 13″ Tooling Plate (3 T-slots, Alignment Pins)
  • Y-axis covers—Mill Accordion Way Cover Set and extended 12″ brass rear leadscrew cover

Other standard features include oilers on the X-, Y- and Z-axes to keep the column leadscrew and base saddle leadscrews and ways lubricated during extended CNC operations. In addition, backlash is adjustable on X-, Y- and Z-axes. Adjustable tapered plastic gibs provide a way to accommodate wear on the aluminum and steel dovetailed slides on all three axes.


Lathe headstock is shown for reference only, and is not included.

NEW PRODUCT! (September 2015)

Lathe Headstock Hard Stop Kit P/N 40116
Starting in August, 2015 every Sherline headstock now includes the holes to add an optional hard stop. A hole through the headstock base allows the hard stop rod to be set to contact the lathe table, providing a hard stop for the Z axis during turning operations. For those who have an older Sherline lathe and want to add the hard stop, the kit includes instructions with dimensions on where your headstock case will need to be drilled to accept the rod and locking thumbscrew. Kit includes 4″ hard stop rod, 8″ hard stop rod and a 10-32 x 5/8” thumbscrew (lathe headstock purchased separately).


NEW PRODUCT! (June 17, 2015)

5C or ER collet to Sherline Chuck Arbors P/N 1065 and 1066
Install a Sherline 3-jaw or 4-jaw chuck in your full-size 1/2″ or 5/8″ lathe collet in seconds! These adapters have a straight shank that will slip into the collet and a 3/4-16 thread on the other end to hold any Sherline 2.5″ or 3.1″ chuck. Shanks are available to fit 1/2″ (P/N 10660) or 5/8″ collets (P/N 10650). When you are done with the job, just remove the chuck and arbor and go back to using your collets.
