About the 3560 4" x 10" Mill Tooling Plate - 

Regularly $63, Now $50.40, Save $12.60!

Like those used on many of our large production machines, the mill tooling plate solves two main problems. It not only protects your mill’s table from damage (while also adding additional stiffness), but it also provides an inexpensive, modifiable surface for clamping work that is as flat as the machine’s original table. The best way to hold a part more securely is to add more clamping points rather than over-tightening the points you already have. The mill tooling plate allows you to easily do this. Like a lathe faceplate, the mill tooling plate should be looked at as somewhat disposable. It has a hole pattern predrilled to make it easy to clamp down the Sherline mill vise or the rotary table, but you should feel free to drill and tap whatever additional holes are needed to meet your clamping and setup needs for a particular job. The plate is made from cast aluminum, which is accurately milled to 1/2" thick. Though not quite as strong as extruded grades, it is very stable and free from internal stresses so it will not warp when you drill additional holes. The surface is not anodized, as it is intended to be easily drilled and machined to suit your unique needs.

Like those used on many of our large production machines, the mill tooling plate solves two main problems. It not only protects your mill’s table from damage (while also adding additional stiffness), but it also provides an inexpensive, modifiable surface for clamping work that is as flat as the machine’s original table. The best way to hold a part more securely is to add more clamping points rather than over-tightening the points you already have. The mill tooling plate allows you to easily do this. Like a lathe faceplate, the mill tooling plate should be looked at as somewhat disposable. It has a hole pattern predrilled to make it easy to clamp down the Sherline mill vise or the rotary table, but you should feel free to drill and tap whatever additional holes are needed to meet your clamping and setup needs for a particular job. The plate is made from 6061-T6 aluminum that is accurately milled to 3/4″ thick, which is 1/4″ thicker than our standard P/N 3560 tooling plate. The surface is not anodized. Therefore, additional machining to the plate can be done to suit your unique needs. This 7″ x 13″ tooling plate is a larger version of the standard 4″ x 10″ tooling plate P/N 3560. In addition to an extensive pattern of 10-32 holes on 1-inch centers, the plate has three T-slots milled on its long axis to provide additional mounting capability. 10-32 holes are also provided as needed for mounting the Sherline P/N 3700 or 8700 rotary table. Provided with the plate are six 10-32 x 7/16″ mounting screws and T-nuts. Also provided are four 1/4″ diameter steel pins that go in locating holes in the bottom of the T-slots to help quickly locate parts parallel to the axis of the plate.

This fixture is not limited to use on Sherline tools. Like the rotary table and some other Sherline accessories, it could be useful on larger machines in your shop as well. This tooling plate was designed to give our customers a larger work surface. The plate was designed primarily for the 5800 NexGen mill. When mounted on the 5800, it will increase the usable machining area of the mill to a full 7″ x 13″ (that’s an additional 5.0″ in the Y-axis and 8.2″ in the X-axis). It can also be used on the 2000 mill, however, it limits the usable Y-axis travel to 2.85″. It has a hole pattern pre-drilled to make it easy to clamp down the Sherline mill vise. Additional holes were also added to accommodate the Sherline rotary table, but you should feel free to drill whatever additional holes are needed to meet your particular clamping and setup needs.

Therefore, additional machining to the plate can be done to suit your unique needs.

NOTE: This tooling plate will mount on your table, but it will reduce your “throat depth” by 2″, and your overall Y-axis travel by 3.3″. A 12″ base will be reduced to 1.7″ of Y-axis travel, and a 14″ base will be reduced to 3.7″ of Y-axis travel (See Figure 1).

This 7″ x 18″ tooling plate is a larger version of the 7″ x 13″ tooling plate (P/N 3562) that comes standard  with the 5800 NexGen Mill. In addition to an extensive pattern of 10-32 holes on 1-inch centers, the plate has three T-slots milled on its long axis to provide additional mounting capability. 10-32 holes are also provided as needed for mounting the Sherline P/N 3700 or 8700 rotary table.

About the 3750 Tilting Angle Table - 

Regularly $115.50, Now $92.40, Save $23.10!

This accessory offers a great variety of setup options. With the base mounted square to the mill table, parts mounted to the tilted table can be machined or drilled at precise angles. It can be set at any angle from 0° to 90°. The hole pattern in the table accepts Sherline’s mill vise or rotary table. A threaded chuck mount is also included, which means parts from the lathe can have machining operations done on them without removing them from the chuck. They can then be put back on the lathe for further operations without re-centering.

With the rotary table mounted to the table and tilted, many additional machining possibilities are opened up. The pre-drilled and tapped hole pattern is laid out so that when the rotary table is rotated to the 90° position, its center is the same height as the right angle adjustable tailstock P/N 3702. This eliminates the need for the P/N 3701 right angle attachment.

Like the 90° Angle Plate P/N 3559 and the Rotary Table P/N 3700, this accessory can also be useful for setups on other machines in addition to your Sherline machines.
