Used as watch maker lathe

December 2015 - One thing which is missing on the Sherline is the ability to reverse the motor direction. Sherline provides a modification instruction sheet on their website. I bought myself the needed switch an made the modification. Now I can start thinking about turning some balance staffs in the future.

August 2014 - as I have already a Sherline lathe and mill and not wanting to start with a different brand for a watch makers lathe I bought an other lathe from Sherline but a short metric 4100 model. This will be used solely with WW collets and probably mostly with hand gravers. This is also the reason to modify the hand wheel so that I can easily take off the tailstock to get it out of the way.
