About the Sherline 5000/5100 Series:
Any Sherline mill can be ordered with stepper motor mounts factory installed in place of the handwheels and ready for the application of stepper motors and computer numeric controls (CNC). Sherline supplies the mounts, and several aftermarket suppliers offer motors, drivers and software to complete the CNC system. You supply the 486 or better computer.

Sherline recommends using dual shaft stepper motors so that handwheels can be applied to the rear shaft for manual control. With that in mind, handwheels for each axis are included with the machine, although they cannot be used until stepper motors are installed. Sherline also offers high quality stepper motors, which can be found in the accessories section of this site.

New Mill Features:
  • Oil reservoirs on the X/Y axes and the Z axis to help keep critical parts lubricated. These were initially developed for CNC machines that run constantly for hours on end but can benefit manual machines as well.
  • Brass leadscrew cover that keeps chips off the rear of the Y-axis leadscrew.
Standard equipment for the model 5000 (5100 metric) mill includes:
  • A powerful 90 VDC motor with electronic speed controller.
  • 10″ base.
  • 2.75″ (70 mm) x 13.0″ (330 mm) table with two T-slots.
  • Pulleys, drive belt, three hexagonal keys, spindle bars, gib removal tool, eight-foot three-wire power cord, and instruction manual.
