- Hi to the list,
It seems Yahoo has automatically signed up members, rather then just
OFFERING to sign them up (as I thought I was doing)! My apologies if
you're not interested in this new group.
I'm hoping to get together people who want to run CNC on their Sherline
mill or lathe.
Currently, I run CNC on my Sherline mill, and have just ordered a
lathe. I've been testing my own CNC controller program, STEP4. I've
also ran TurboCNC, and MaxNC.
I run Vector CAD/CAM, and hope to exchange files in this format (as well
My main projects (other then getting CNC on a lathe next) is designing
and building Steam engines. I'd like to hear about ANY CNC projects.
Hope you can participate!

- Hello Alan,
I am also a Sherline CNC user! I have a Sherline CNC Mill w/Rotary
Table, and a Sherline Lathe with spindle encoder for threading. My
controller and CNC conversion was done by Bill Griffin of Grifftek.
I use Dolphin Partmaster for my CAD/CAM, and AhHa for my CNC
I am still in the early stages with all of this, however, I have big
plans. I have posted some of what I am doing on my web site.
I am in the process of developing several end-to-end tutorials for
CAD/CAM/CNC using Sherline equipment.
Thanks for setting up this list.
