5000 (5100) Vertical milling machine (10” base)
The 5000-series mills are Sherline’s most economical mills and would be a good starting point for any miniature machine shop. They feature a solid 10″ (254mm) aluminum base, precision machined dovetailed slides with adjustable gibs, permanently lubricated spindle bearings, adjustable preload anti-backlash feed screws on the X- and Y-axes, two 1-5/8″ (41mm) laser engraved aluminum handwheels, one 2-1/2″ (63mm) laser engraved handwheel with thrust bearings, and many other features found only on the best commercial machines.
The 5000/5100 mill can be ordered with P/N 8100 digital readout already installed. Standard handwheels are not included because they are replaced by the DRO handwheels. The mill can also be ordered in “CNC ready” configuration ready for the application of stepper motors and CNC controls. In this configuration the standard handwheels are supplied so that they can be used on the rear shaft of a dual shaft stepper motor for optional manual control.
