RE: [SherlineCNC] Ball screws
I need more information. Not familiar with Delrin-AF.
I assume the nut replaces the nut that Sherline provides with the mill?
Just tap a piece of DelrinAF 1/4-20 and replace the Sherline nut?
Guess I don't understand how that would help. Does it reduce or virtually
eliminate backlash for CNC?
I did find some DelrinAF on the web in rod form, not very expensive.

you'll pay more for mini ballscrews than the mill cost.
Try Delrin-AF nuts.
I have them on X, Y and Z. Not hard to do.
I did not install ball screws on my x and y axes, but I did on
the z axis. It's something of an unusual design that you can see in
the photos/Marv's Junk folder.
