This is our own unique take on a Sherline complete CNC bolt-on kit. Unlike the Sherline factory system we designed ours exactly opposite of the Sherline factory design. As you can see from the pictures, we put the stepper motors on the left side for the X-axis and on the backside for the Y-axis, which is where Sherline should have put theirs. This way the the hand wheels are right where they need to be, on the right side for the X-axis and in front for the Y-axis so you can see what you are cutting without getting poked by the hand wheel.
Our Sherline complete CNC bolt-on kit comes complete with everything you need, except the lathe. These components bolt on to your existing lathe. It’s plug and play.
When you compare our price with Sherline’s price, you’ll notice that our price is only a little higher, but our kit is complete. You don’t need anything else with our kit, unlike Sherline’s kit, which you have to purchase the stepper motors, the driver interface boards, and the power supply.
Our Sherline Complete CNC Bolt-on Kit includes:
- Leadscrews for both the X and Y axes (1 of each)
- Nema 23 stepper motors and mounting brackets (2 each)
- Driver interface boards and speed controllers (2 each) for Powerfeed
- 1 – 6 amp 12 volt power supply and “Y” connectors (2)
- Sherline adjustable zero 2″ hand wheels
- Detailed installation instructions
- All necessary hardware
Remember to tell us the width of your cross slide. Sherline offered a 4-1/2″ and a 6″ design. We need that so we can manufacture the proper length of leadscrew.
To use this kit as CNC you will need to upgrade to the the computer interface boards and add a CNC computer program.
Please allow up to 14 days to custom manufacture the components for your kit.
