New Features being updated. 3D CAD images now being added!

Sherline is in the process of producing 3D CAD files in .IGS format for designers who need to spec our parts into your machine designs. We have started adding links to 3D files on some of our most popular slides and spindles and will continue as our CAD draftsman completes them. For those who need a free .IGS file viewer, see .

   About Sherline Industrial Slides and Spindles

Sherline Products in Vista, California has manufactured precision manual and CNC machine tools for over four decades in the USA. They are used by lab technicians and craftsmen in fields including prototyping, model making, model engineering, clock making and gunsmithing. We have taken that experience in making fine tools, adapted existing components and designed new ones to make up an "Engineer's Erector Set" of slides and spindles that can be used or assembled in various ways to make accurate tooling for prototyping and light duty industrial projects. They are ideal for lab work too.

Building these components in large quantities for the machine tool line helps keep the costs low on these specially adapted versions. The line is also sold only "factory direct," meaning no middleman markups. If you need well-engineered slides with 14" or less of travel and spindles that can turn up to 10,000 RPM, don't pay for more than you need. Spindles and manual slides start at just $150.00. Scroll down to the main menu below for a selection of pre-assembled slides and spindles.

See for a huge line of accessories that are compatible with these slides and spindles.
