Sherline 5600 CNC-ready for Mill XY Base (14 in)
You can order any Sherline mill with stepper motor mounts factory installed in place of the handwheels and ready for the application of stepper motors and computer numeric controls (CNC). Sherline supplies the mounts, and several aftermarket suppliers offer motors, drivers, and software to complete the CNC system. You supply the 486 or better computer.
Sherline recommends using dual shaft stepper motors. This is for the application of handwheels to the rear shaft for manual control. With that in mind, handwheels for each axis come with the machine. They cannot be used until stepper motors are installed. Sherline also offers high-quality stepper motors, which can be found in the accessories section of this site.
**PLEASE NOTE CNC READY MACHINES DO NOT INCLUDE COMPUTER, STEPPER MOTORS OR CONTROLLER. YOU CAN PURCHASE THEM SEPARATELY.**
