Sherline Headstock Riser Plate 13″ Crosslide 1295

It’s designed at the request of several customers who replaced the 6″ crosslide with the thicker 13″ crosslide. Mostly, the customers use the lathe as a chucker lathe with gang tooling.

it is also used as a milling machine after adding a vertical milling column. Sherline only makes two tool posts that are shorter, so they will be on center with the spindle when using the 13″ table in place of the 6″ crosslide.

The height of the 13″ table is .870″. The height of this riser (P/N 12951) is .270″. By using this riser plate, the headstock is raised to match the additional thickness of the 13″ table. Therefore, all of the standard tool posts will now be on centerline with the headstock.

Be advised that the tailstock will not align with the headstock when using this spacer.

Additionally, some of the other accessories will also NOT work when you are using this spacer.

You can use the 13″ mill tables as a crosslide, but this will push the limits of the structural integrity of the machine.

The lathe saddle is designed for a 6″ long crosslide.

An 8″ long crosslide is as long as it’s structurally sound. The further the crosslide is away from the lathe saddle, the more play you will get at the ends of the crosslide. Using the longer crosslides will prevent you to face issues. If you choose to use a 13″ table, you should also make sure your lathe is securely mounted to a stable work surface.
