Sherline Pneumatic Bar Feeder

Our Pneumatic Bar Feeder System was designed to work with our Accu-Pro Turn Ball Screw Chucker Lathe and our Chucker Lathe, in conjunction with our 3C Lever Collet Closer. The addition of the bar feeder to our chucker lathe turns our CNC chucker lathe into a fully automated system. You can order it with an optional aluminum base.

CNC-Ready Industrial Slides w/Ball Screws

CNC-Ready industrial slides are now available with ball screws. Low friction in ball screws yields high mechanical efficiency compared to other leadscrew alternatives, and efficiencies can range from 70% to 95%. Contact us for a quote.

About Sherline Industrial Slides and Spindles

Sherline Products in Vista, California has manufactured precision manual and CNC machine tools for over four decades. All of our products are made in the USA. They are used by lab technicians and craftsmen in fields including prototyping, medical, aerospace, laser engraving, model making, model engineering, watch and clockmaking, 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 18" 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 under $200.00. Use the direct links above, or the side-bar menu on the right to view a selection of pre-assembled slides and spindles.

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

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 their 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 (Be sure to click on the correct download link. The IGS Viewer page promotes a number of other downloads and can be confusing. Scroll down until you find the IGS Viewer download link.)
