alde Posted May 26, 2014 Share #1 Posted May 26, 2014 (edited) I just got what I thought was a good deal on a used Sherline 4000 Lathe. It runs great and seems nice and tight but there is one problem. The distance from the top of the cross slide to the center of the chuck should be .94". Mine measures .69". I noticed there was something wrong when I could not get a tool close to the center of the work and I could not chuck up a 1.5" diameter aluminum rod over the cross slide. My cross slide is .88" thick. Can somebody please measure the thickness of their Sherline lathe cross slide for me? Here is a picture of mine with a brand new rear mount cut off tool that goes over a piece mounted in the chuck. Thanks for any help, Al Edited May 26, 2014 by alde Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
