View Full Version : Sherline Conversion Questions

08-04-2009, 11:01 AM
Hoping to make contact with anyone ( realistically in the UK.....no offense !) who has had recent experience of converrting either a Sherline Lathe or Mill, to CNC.
I know there are packages out there but I am looking to make contact with those who have made the conversions without spending an arm and a leg on Import Duty and Vat.
Are the manual (imperial) leadscrew threads ok or do they have to be modded to minimise backlash?
Source for Steppers of the appropriate type
Source for Power supply /breakout/controllers?
Can Corel be used as the drawing medium

Thanks in advance......Carsy
