  1. Hello All! Trying to pick your brains here... Looking for opinions on Unimat vs. Sherline, why your pick, and would you go lathe only or with mill? Your input wanted... I'd like something not too complicated, as it will be my initial plunge to this type of tool, but I wouldn't want to waste money in something that I may get as a package, as opposed to buying afterwards separately (and more expensive probably). Would like to be able to input the measurement electronically, for precision sakes. Would this be a good package to start? https://www.ebay.com/itm/SHERLINE-4410-C-3-5-X-17-LATHE-METRIC-the-C-Package-INCH-SEE-PN-4400C/153087814518?hash=item23a4beab76:g:5noAAOSw1qtbPkxD In the meantime, will continue to read on both items... thanks, as always, for your help! Jorge
  2. My daughter shared my love of boats and ships, and to make models for her was the driving force behind why I began building. She was murdered more than a year ago, and with her senseless death, I lost my reason and purpose and passion for modeling. Therefore, I’m letting my Sherline Mill and remainder of desirable books from my book collection go. These are my last few items, and I would like to see them go to members of this great community; therefore, I’ve set prices to help make these last few items more accessible. If you’re serious and interested in the items I’m offering below, to help avoid misunderstandings or etc. upfront, please read through what follows. I believe the prices I’ve set are reasonable, so please let’s not haggle over prices in the thread or via PM. Due to how the books are all pre-packed, weighed, and etc., I cannot combine shipments. I apologize in advance to the forum’s international modelers, but I can only sell and ship within the United States and only ship the Mill to the lower 48 states. For the listed books, please send me your zip in a PM and I will provide you with a USPS Media shipping quote. Shipping is included in the price of the Sherline Mill. I accept PayPal “Goods and Services” transactions, will provide you with a shipping quote, and will usually ship within 2 business days of receiving a cleared payment. Before any money changes hands, we will ensure we are both comfortable with our transaction and the details are clearly discussed. I will regularly check for PMs during evenings while this post is active, update this post when items are either pending sale or sold, and provide photos of the listed items via PM. Thank you for your interest! Jay Sale Pending: Sherline Deluxe 5400 Mill – INCHES – LOADED with Accessories and Digital Readout (DRO) $1500.00, USPS Ground Shipping Included (which is approx. $125) If you’ve been considering purchasing a Sherline Mill, this is an excellent deal. I barely used the Mill before I lost my daughter, and the setup I’m offering sells new for $2,715. I have included Sherline, along with Starrett and Proxxon accessories pricing, and references so that if you like, you can validate my pricing statement online. The Mill is loaded with nice features and accessories for ship modeling. The mill has an extended height, rotating, column with oiler; an extended length table (bed), includes a horizonal mounting base so that you can mill either vertically or horizontally, and has 10,000 rpm pulleys to help mill small wooden pieces. I purposely did not purchase a Sherline 8 direction mill because they are much more difficult to tram, and the 360-rotating vise is a nice accessory that, in my opinion, works well for rotating work pieces. The only issues with the Mill is some minor scuffing on the motor head, a couple of small scratches on the mill bed, and there is some pixilation at the right corner of the DRO readout that doesn’t impact readouts. Most of other items with the Mill are new and have never been used. The box it will ship in is large: 29” l x 17” w x 15” h and weighs almost 62 pounds. It will ship USPS ground with both insurance and signature confirmation. I packed the box well: The sides, bottom, and top are lined with 1” Styrofoam, all the parts are well bubbled wrapped, and the box is filled with packing peanuts and packing paper. Deluxe Sherline Mill Package A with DRO - Inches, P/N 5400A – ($1,457.00) Included Deluxe Accessory Package A: Sherline P/N 3551: Mill Vise ($78.75) Sherline P/N 3072: Jacobs Chuck 0 to 1/4” ($57.75) Sherline P/N 3013: SS Hold Down Set ($42.00) Sherline P/N 3021: Set of Center Drills ($17.00) Sherline P/N 3052: Fly cutter ($36.75) Sherline P/N 3060: 3 Collet Set with Draw Bar ($47.25) Sherline P/N 7303: 3/8” End Mill Holder ($31.50) Sherline P/N 7401: 3/8” End Mill Set (4 flute I think, $57.75) Additional Included Accessories: Sherline P/N 45260: 15” Extended Mill Column ($94.50) Sherline P/N 54182: 18” Extended Mill Table ($194.25) Sherline P/N 3570: Rotating Mill Vise Base ($105.00) Sherline P/N 50056: Rigid Column Base, Tall ($78.75) Sherline P/N 3500: Rotary Column Attachment ($84.00) Sherline P/N 6100: Horizonal Milling Conversion ($136.50) Sherline P/N 4335: 10,000 RPM Pulley Attachment ($84.00) Sherline P/N 1299: Extended Headstock Spacer ($63.00) Sherline P/N 1012: Sensitive Drill Attachment ($115.50) Sherline P/N 1069: Jacobs Chuck 1/32” to 3/8” with 2 Arbors ($68.25) Sherline P/N 3065: Slitting Saw Holder ($42.00) Sherline P/N 7307: 0.045” x 2” dia. 110 slitting saw blade ($14.75) Sherline P/N 7303: 0.032” x 2” dia. 110 slitting saw blade ($10.50) Sherline P/N 40177OL: Mill Z-Axis Saddle Nut with Oiler ($31.00) Sherline P/N 3021: 1 extra set of Center Drills ($17.00) Sherline P/N 61050: These are the original column blocks Starrett P/N S828: Center Finder (Amazon $70.00) Starrett P/N 827MB: Edge Finder, Double End (Amazon $36.00) Proxxon P/N 28940: Collet Set - 1/32, 1/16, 5/64, 3/32, 7/64, and 1/8” (Amazon $14.00) 4 Additional End Mills – don’t recall sizes or brand(s)
  3. Hello, many persons are interested in learning machining skills but don't have an instructor available. Here's an exceptionally attractive instructional video about turning brass to make a tool. The machinist is a clockmaker and has a Youtube channel called Clickspring. I think you will find his videos interesting, useful, and visually stunning.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
