Standard Vertical Milling Column

With this attachment the Sherline lathe can 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. If you order a CNC-ready version of the vertical milling column, P/N 3050-CNC (3053-CNC) it is fitted with a stepper motor mount and coupling ready for the installation of a NEMA 23 frame size stepper motor. For use with our recommended dual shaft motors we also include a handwheel for manual control. The mount includes two flanged ball bearings and a preload nut to eliminate end play.
