Sherline 4100 lathe, used as watch maker lathe, updated 17.12.2022
August 2020, I made a lever style tailstock out of the Sherline tailstock.
May 2019, I was not happy with the Sherline W.R. Smith T-Rest, as it is not foldable. There is a selfmade foldable/flip-over version mentioned on the Sherline page: https://www.sherline.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/002_cw_tip.pdf
My solution for this problem uses most of the original Sherline T-Rest parts. I only made a new pedestal base and pedestal.
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.
