Sherline Mill Column Riser Block 1300
Sherline Mill Column Riser Block
When stacking multiple holding fixtures on the mill table for some setups, it is easy to run out of Z-axis room. Adding a 2″ extension under the bottom of the column base can give you back the space you need.
The column riser block set includes the 2″ riser block plus the longer bolts needed to extend through the block and into the mill column base. While you will probably not want to leave this extension in place all the time, having it available for those tall setups can make your life a lot easier.
A riser or spacer block is used to increase the height of the mill column, either to clear a larger work piece or to accommodate a tall setup like a vise on top of a rotary table on top of a tilting angle table. This block raises the column an additional 2.0″. To install it, the milling column is removed from mill base, the two-inch extension block is placed beneath the column base and the new, longer bolts are brought up from below the mill base, through the block and tightened into the mill column block. It is then aligned and used just like before. If travel all the way down to the table surface is required, the block can be removed and the mill column return to stock height.
