Product Description

About the Sherline 8″ Industrial linear machine slide with programmable CNC controller

Sherline offers a line of industrial slides and spindles that make it easy to build up and control manual or CNC movements for production or home shop use. Show here as an example is the 8″ single axis slide with a stepper motor mount. Included are the stepper motor and a controller with a built-in driver to program and run it. The controller allows you to program in table movement controlling speed, direction, and distance right from the keypad. No knowledge of G-code is required. Included is the power supply and connecting cable as well as an extra half cable for “Daisy-chaining” one or more linear or rotary controllers together for sequential moves. To learn more about how the controller works, see the links to the instructions below.

The 8″ slide has 4″ of table travel. This slide is also available in a 13″ length for an additional 5″ of travel as P/N 6559. The table and T-slots feature the standard Sherline layout of 1.5″ on centers and can be used with Sherline T-nut accessories. The slide is mounted to your base by means of four 1/2-20 holes in the bottom of the base. A screw activated slide lock is also provided.

Items included with the Linear Machine Slide with Programmable Controller:

  • 8″ single axis slide
  • Linear Controller w/Keypad
  • Power Supply
  • #23 Frame Size Stepper Motor
  • Cables
  • Complete instructions

NOTE: If you wish to apply CNC linear control to an axis of a Sherline machine that does not have a stepper motor mount, see this kit.

NOTE: The power supply included with this indexer (linear controller) is intended to operate only on 115/120 VAC, 60 Hz (38 W) current. For countries operating on 100, 220 or 240VAC and/or 50Hz a transformer will be required. As an alternative, this power supply outputs 24VDC, 1 Amp (1000 mA). If you can purchase an appropriate power supply that operates on local current and outputs 24VDC, 1A current, it could be used to power the unit instead of the one supplied. Sherline Products does not provide a 220V power supply or transformer.
