Sherline’s CNC Lathes

Three Packages and CNC Upgrade Kit

Sherline 4400 CNC-Ready Lathe

Sherline is best-known for their lathes which, though small, are well engineered and supported with a full range of accessories. The 3.5″ × 8″ 4000 is the smallest of them, suitable for jewelry, watchmaking and miniature modelmaking. The longer 4400 lathe has a 3.5″ swing and 17″ between centers, making it useful for small to medium-sized projects. Like all Sherline’s machines, these lathes are available in metric or Imperial versions. The metric version of the 4000 is called the 4100, the metric 4400 is the 4410. Both include Sherline’s variable-speed ¼ HP DC motor, so speed can be controlled with a twist of the dial.

These lathes are available with several packages of accessories, which save money over buying them all separately.

The “A” package includes a 3-jaw chuck and tailstock drill chuck. The 4000A/4100A lathes come with a 2.5″ 3-jaw chuck and a ¼″ tailstock chuck.The 4400A/4410A lathes come with a 3.1″ 3-jaw chuck and a ⅜″ tailstock chuck

This package of accessories adds $100 to the list price of the 4000 lathe, $80 to the list price of the 4000 CNC lathe, and $125 to the list price of the 4400 or 4400 CNC.

The “B” package includes all the accessories in the “A” package, and adds the #1074 Steady rest, #1191 Live center, #3002 532″ Hex T-driver, #3021 3-piece center drill set and the #5327 Sherline Accessories Shop Guide** book

This package of accessories adds $275 to the list price of the 4000 or 4000 CNC lathe, or $305 to the list price of the 4400 or 4400 CNC lathe.

The “C” package includes everything in the A and B packages, and adds the #1270 (or metric #1280) compound slide and the #3100 thread cutting attachment. This package of accessories adds $515 to the price of the 4000 or 4000 CNC lathe, or $545 to the price of the 4400 or 4400 CNC lathe.

We also can supply compatible 3rd-party accessories such as a quick-change toolpost and riser blocks to further extend the lathe’s functionality.

The Sherline 8765 CNC Upgrade Kit adds two Sherline 67127 Stepper Motors, the Sherline 8760 4-Axis Driver Box, power supply, cables, and the EMC software for Linux on CD, transforming the CNC-ready version of either lathe into a full CNC machine.

You connect your computer (not included) to the driver box using a 25-pin parallel cable (included) attached to your computer’s parallel port. The CNC version runs on the same control system and software as the mill, so it’s possible to save money by switching leads and running both machines with the same box and computer, if you purchase both the CNC lathe and mill.
