Landlubber Mike Posted September 29, 2013 Share #1 Posted September 29, 2013 Hi everyone, I've been thinking about upgrading to the Sherline lathe from the Proxxon DB250. The base model comes with a bed that is 8" between centers. Is this long enough for mast making? The Proxxon enables you to slide the mast through a hole in the system opposite the tailstock (not sure exactly what you call it), so you can work with longer pieces, you just have to flip them around. Is that the case with the Sherline as well, or is it just better to go with the longer bed that is 17" between centers? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
