2021-6-20  Sherline's mill tables are not ground at all. They are milled extrusions. On the subject mill above, the column side of the table measures .8919" from the top to the sliding contact surface on the bottom. On the handwheel side it measures .8902" for a difference of .0017". That's part of the error. The rest has to be in the table saddle.

2002-2-21  My experience with a light mill has not been good. I have a compact 5 mill head mounted to a small (11 by 5 or so) XY table. The whole unit weighs about 60 pounds. The unit is just not rigid enough to use end mills, even as small as 1/4 inch, on steel. A 2 inch Fly Cutter is an impossible dream.

Benchtop Machines > so..Sherline is dead as a

2013-6-16  Sherline sells their mill and lathe parts as individual components for industrial use. What difference does it make if people buy these parts for hobby use or business use? The sherline can cut 6061 at similar material removal rates as a full size knee mill with a slow spindle, at a conservative feed rate for a 1/4" diameter cut, although its with a roughing finish and the plunge rate is much slower.

BUSHING WITH A SHERLINE MILL NAWCC Forums

2020-5-20  The Sherline mill has a very sensitive "feel" and you can very easily tell when the centering point is solidly against the plate. Don't force the point down after it makes solid contact, as this just flexes the plate and potentially introduces errors.

Sherline 5400 Mill Advice NAWCC Forums

2019-3-23  Sherline's "A" packages are the basic stuff you'll need to use the machine if you don't already have the tooling, and they are less expensive than buying the tools you didn't get later. I look at it this way, buy the best tools you can afford with all the accessories you think you'll need at the same time to get the best price.

I measured 0.0001 inch over 2. 5 inches along the y-axis, and 0.0002 inch over 6 inches along the x-axis. Those values seem good to me. The next step is to align the vertical bed.
