If you wish to purchase a Sherline CNC lathe, but you want to use your own computer and software instead of Sherline's computer with pre-loaded Linux/EMC software, this package makes it easier. Here's what you do:
1. Order the CNC-ready lathe of your choice.
2. Order this kit (4-axis driver box and connecting cables plus power supply and 2 stepper motors).
3. Supply your own computer, monitor, and control software.
The 8765 kit includes Sherline's 8760 4-axis driver box and power supply plus two 67127 stepper motors. Plug the 25-pin parallel cable (included) from the driver box to the printer port of your computer. Attach the stepper motors to the stepper motor mounts on the crosslide and leadscrew of your Sherline CNC-ready lathe and plug the X and Z cables from the driver box to the stepper motors. Once you select and install your own control software, you are ready to go.
NOTE: If you want a complete plug-and-play system with a lathe, computer, and driver ready to run, see the complete CNC systems listed elsewhere on this site.
