Sherline CNC Mill Kit (No Computer) 8770

Mill Kit (No Computer) 8770

If you wish to purchase a Sherline CNC 3-axis mill but you want to use your own computer and software instead of Sherline’s computer with pre-loaded Linux/EMC software, this package makes it easier. Here’s what you do:

1. Order the CNC-ready mill of your choice. It will already have the stepper motor mounts installed (mill is not included, must be purchased separately)
2. Order this kit (4-axis driver box and connecting cables plus power supply and 3 stepper motors).
3. Supply your own computer, monitor and control software.

The 8770 kit includes Sherline’s 8760 4-axis driver box and power supply plus three 67127 stepper motors. Plug the 25-pin parallel cable (included) from the driver box to the printer port of your computer. Attach the stepper motors to the stepper motor mounts on the X, Y and Z axes of your

Sherline CNC-ready mill and plug the X, Y and Z cables from the driver box to the stepper motors. Once you select and install your own control software, you are ready to go. If you want to add a 4th axis rotary table, purchase P/N 8730 rotary table with stepper motor and plug it to axis A.

NOTE: If you want a complete plug-and-play system with a lathe, computer and driver ready to run, please contact us.

Included Components

  • Driver box with 4 motor cables
  • 3.7 amp, 24 volt power supply with cord
  • 25-pin parallel cable
  • 2 CD set with Linux/EMC2, utilities and instructions
  • Two spare fuses

*NOTE: Even though the Sherline driver box only uses four of those axes at one time, a 2-wire serial USB port cannot transmit data to multiple axes fast enough for glitch-free CNC operation. Therefore a 25-wire parallel port is required because LinuxCNC is designed to be capable of running up to six axes simultaneously.

Minimum Computer Requirements

In order to install and run a Linux based system from the disc provided, the computer has to have at least the following minimum specifications:

  • Processor speed: 800 MHz or faster (Pentium III class or equivalent processor)
  • RAM: 512 Mb (Sherline provides 1 Gb)
  • Hard Drive: 20 Gb or larger
  • 25-pin parallel port (printer port)
  • (Laptop computers are not recommended.)
