Purpose of the Sherline Mill XY Bases

If you already own a vertical milling column for use with your lathe, but feel a sturdier base with a larger work area would be to your advantage, you may purchase the base of any of our vertical mills as an XY base. Your older vertical milling column can be returned to the factory to be re-machined and used with an XY base rather than purchasing the entire vertical milling machine. (Call for price.) Vertical milling columns made after 1995 do not need to be modified. This combination saves you the amount of money included in the cost of the vertical mill for the column, but gives you the same machine less headstock and motor/speed control. XY bases have also found their way into the industrial market and are used in various manufacturing setups. Each of the four mills is available as an XY base.

The NexGen DRO Mill XY base is the same base used in our NexGen DRO mill.

Standard features of the XY Base:

  • 18″ Extended Mill Table
  • 18″ Mill Base
  • Travel: X=13.65″ (347 mm), Y= 11.0″ (279 mm), Z=9.38″ (238 mm)
  • X&Y handwheels, encoders, sensors, and will connect to your digital readout box (not included)
NOTE: The round column base of the 2000 series mill will not fit on this base. You will need to purchase the rectangle rigid column base in order to adapt your 2000 seires mill Z axis on the XY base. If you have a 5000/5400 series mill, you will need the rigid column upgrade.
