Welcome to our Facmaster Factory!
aug 29, 2020 purchased my used sherline 4400 lathe and used 5400 mill for clockmaking too. one of the first things did was make parts to repair my table saw. since then ive also built a model steam engine. yes ive also made clock parts, but Im interested in everything too. the lathe is great if all you will do with it is clocks.aug 15, 2017 Of course, there are biggerbetter mills but would look at this as a good entry level machine. By the way, own a sherline 5400 mill and it is much, much better than its size would suggest. would put it up against much larger mini-mills, especially where accuracy is concerned. however, it is a small machine and trust me; mass tells.aug 26, 2013 some people like a mix of a sherline motor on a taig headstock with a taig mill or even an entire sherline motor and headstock on a taig mill. If you are on the lookout for a lathe for precision work, do not put the taig lathe on your list, it has many more issues than the taig mill. for precision consider sherline, cowells, levinjan 05, 2020 mills are a huge investment, and for hobbyists without the space to install their own personal mill, it can sometimes be a pain to have to find a facility with a mill you will be amazed at how simple gear making can be! you can make any diametral pitch hob by simply following the easy diametral pitch chart that is included as part of the video. the video shows a 110 pitch spiral and straight hob being made and then used to make gears of various diameters. you will not need to compute anything.
and, with no gears, the hitorque mini mill is the quietest in its class. the large mill table provides 50% more table area than other mini mills. It also has 30% more travel in each direction. the resettable feed dials allow you to zero them at any point. carries the sieg mini mill.worm gear ratio: hold-down provision: t-slots plus chuck adapter to mount sherline 3-jaw or 4-jaw chucks to table; mounting provision: holes in bottom of base, plus slot for angle clamps, and holes in worm housing flange; works with PN 8540 or 8020 cnc mill systems as axistip cutting bevel gears on a sherline cncdavid lehrian. feb 04, 2001 gears on my cnc sherline mill and lathe that purchased from backtrack cnc. the software that generates the g-code to drive the mill was written by myself in java 1.1 and is available for download for those inclined to try it To serve this purpose, the size of the teeth on the star gear have been reduced to give a tighter fit and remove play from the backlash nut. all new sherline machines after 604 include these revised star gear backlash nuts and locks, but they can be retrofitted to any sherline mills made after 1997 when the old pointer lock system was phased out.the mill may be mounted in a similar manner on a to pre-finished shelf board with rubber feet using screws to attach the mill to the board. To keep your sherline tools clean, soft plastic dust covers are available.
It works, but there are much better ways to create gears. the code may have a few glitches, as it was in transition from mfcgdi calls to a custom cross-platform framework. these days Id absolutely use aug 01, 2011 hello would really like to get into making clock and watch wheels and pinions. bought a sherline mill for this purpose and also the cnc rotaty indexer. wanted to use the fly cutting method. read various bits on the web and watched the videos but somehow, am just stuck, mentallyyou can also check the gear mesh with the mating gear and then machine your bushing hole exactly where you want it to be. By using the horological bushing and depthing accessory in conjunction with your sherline mill, you now have a three-in-one clock and watch repair machine that is also a fully functional milling machine.
