XY & XYZ Bases
If you already own a vertical milling column for use with your lathe, but feel a sturdier base with a larger work area would be to your advantage, you may purchase the base of any of our vertical mills as an XY base.
The Sherline vertical mill can be purchased without the headstock and motor/speed control as an XYZ base. This allows lathe owners to swap the headstock and motor/speed control from their lathe to the mill in approximately 60 seconds. This package offers a savings of about 28-30% when compared to the price of our standard mill.
