Sherline's 3-Axis CNC Ready Tabletop Vertical Milling Machine Package includes many parts and information required to get started in 3-axis machining. This "CNC ready" configuration requires the addition (and installation) of stepper motors and CNC controls. In this configuration the standard handwheels are supplied so that they can be used on the rear shaft of a dual shaft stepper motor for optional manual control. Assembly is required, but is not difficult. You can specify CNC (inch) or CNC (metric) in the options above.
Sherline's 3-Axis CNC Ready Tabletop Vertical Milling Machine Package is based around the 5000-series mills, Sherline's most economical tabletop mills, and are a great starting point for any miniature machine shop. They feature a solid 10" (254mm) aluminum base, precision machined dovetailed slides with adjustable gibs, permanently lubricated spindle bearings, adjustable preload anti-backlash feed screws on the X- and Y-axes, two 1-5/8" (41mm) laser engraved aluminum handwheels, one 2-1/2" (63mm) laser engraved handwheel with thrust bearings, and many other features found only on the best commercial machines. These are some of the most affordable CNC machines on the market!
