Metal Working Tools, InformationThere is a lot of interest in new mini-lathes and mills, but making precision replacement parts out of metal is not an easy task. It takes good equipment, a willingness to experiment and good information.
Sherline Products is owned by Joe Martin, who is a skilled metalworker himself, so he understands the needs of the home shop machinist. Martin and Sherline provide the detailed information needed by beginners and experts alike in addition to selling a complete line of American-made benchtop metalworking tools. Even inexpensive CNC systems are now offered for the home shop.
The company hosts a huge and highly informative web site at www.sherline.com, offering not only information on their product line but also practical machining information that can be applied to tools of any size or brand. Also available is a book by Joe Martin called Tabletop Machining, which is a practical guide to the “real world” of metalworking in the home shop. For more information contact: Sherline Products, 3235 Executive Ridge, Vista, CA 92081 or phone (800) 541-0735. A free 48-page color catalog is available upon request or order on-line at www.sherlinedirect.com.
