Problems with my Sherline Mill
« on: July 31, 2010, 12:03:25 PM »
I was flycutting a piece of aluminium stock when I realised that my z-axis vibrates like crazy closer to the table (on CNC).  It only happens when the spindle is being lowered.  I also found that my z axis is leaning to its left and back.  This was discovered when indicating the z axis with a 3" square clamped directly to the table (after the failed attempts in flycutting).

I read through the sherline instruction on tramming the mill once again but I just couldn't get it right.

Anyone would be kind enough to help me with a step by step instruction on how to properly tram a Sherline 5410 mill?  Best if it can in the form of how to measure/indicate and what and how to adjust on the mill.  Pics would be great as I'm still not very familiar with some of the terms being use.

Many thanks in advance.

Regards,
Wong
