Sherline Lathe and Mini-Mill Videos


In case someone that uses these machines missed the link that pentagrid
included in his recent post about miniatuure magnetic chucks, here's a
website with videos of the machines.
The Brazillian narrator isn't speaking in english, but there are some
captions included in some places in the videos.

The tiny cutting tools that he makes are remarkable.

Actually I am quite fascinated with his tool sharpener.

The cutting tool sharpener looked like a fairly common tool and cutter grinder to me.
He mentioned that he has modified a bench grinder, but I didn't see it.
I was surprised by the cutting tool overhang for such small tools, and the relatively big workpieces that weren't supported by the tailsock.
I realize that turning cuts on a Sherline lathe would be fairly slow as far as cu.in./minute stock removal, but I would've expected some serious tool chatter with some of his setups.
