Sherline Lathe B Package 17 Inch 4400B
Lathe B Package 17 Inch
If you have an interest in a lathe with more distance between centers, the model 4400 (metric 4410) lathe is available. Several upgrades are included in the purchase price. Standard equipment is the same as on the model 4000; that is, 90 VDC motor with electronic speed controller, a 2.75″ (70mm) x 6.0″ (152mm) crosslide, pulleys, belt, faceplate, lathe dog, two dead centers, three hexagonal keys, sharpened high-speed steel cutting tool, eight-foot, three-wire power cord and instruction booklet.
In addition, the model 4400 lathe has a 24″ (610mm) bed that has 17″ (431mm) between centers, a 2.5″ (63mm) resettable “zero” handwheel on the leadscrew, two 2″ (51mm) resettable “zero” handwheels on the crosslide and feed screw and a rocker tool post (P/N 3057) substituted for the standard tool post used on the shortbed lathes. The electronic speed control allows continuously variable speed control from 70 to 2800 RPM without belt changes.
There is a second pulley position available that offers extra torque at low RPM if needed. Many machinists find that the extra space between centers comes in handy. Especially when working with a part held in a chuck and a larger tailstock chuck with a long drill bit in place. The combination of chucks, part and drill can eat up a lot of the available center-to-center distance, and a little extra capacity is often helpful. This lathe offers the same diameter turning capacities as the shorter lathe and same powerful motor/speed control. The differences are both the extra 9” of center distance and the addition of extras like the adjustable zero handwheels and rocker toolpost, making this lathe a good value for the extra cost.
