Sherline Vertical Milling Column (Inch) 3050

SKU 3050
Item In Stock
Features & Specs
This Sherline attachment allows Sherline lathes to be quickly and easily converted into a small milling machine.
The attachment consists of a steel dovetailed vertical column with a solid aluminum base that attaches to the bed of the lathe in place of the headstock. The headstock then mounts to a dovetailed saddle on the vertical column.
The saddle is raised and lowered to control the depth of cut by turning a handwheel. Calibrations on the handwheel enable depth control to .001" (.01MM).
Parts to be machined are mounted on the crosslide. On the deluxe version P/N 3480 (3485 Metric), a 2-1/2" adjustable "zero" handwheel replaces the standard handwheel.

This is a good way to get into milling. Most standard vertical milling operations can be performed with this attachment, with only the size being the basic limitation. Conversion from the lathe to milling takes less than one minute. Almost all Sherline milling accessories may be used with the setup. At a later date, should you wish to upgrade to a complete vertical milling machine, the column will fit the Sherline XY bases (P/N 5200/5210, or 5410/5411 ) This offers a cost savings compared to purchasing a complete vertical milling machine, because you save the cost of a second headstock, motor, and speed control.

Note: Columns made prior to January 1996 will need to be modified to fit the XY table (Call Sherline for details).
