Vertical Milling Table


(Click on image for a larger view; picture is of vertical milling table with the standard handwheel. A DRO handwheel is substituted on the 1185-DRO/1184-DRO)

The vertical milling table is another method of milling on the Sherline lathe instead of using the vertical milling column. Parts to be machined are mounted to the vertical table. The vertical table is then mounted to the lathe crosslide table and the part is moved past a cutter held in the lathe spindle. This provides 3 axes of cutting similar to a mill, but in different directions and with shorter X and Y movements. For general milling we recommend the vertical milling column as a better way to do milling on a lathe, but for specific setups you may find this compact accessory useful. Many books written for the hobbyist show this type of setup on larger lathes. It can also make a useful fixture for multiple movements when used on the mill or on other special-purpose machines.

Note that the photo shows the older style 6" long table. As of March, 2004, the table is now both longer at 8" long and 1/4" thicker for more rigidity.
