Hi there, Welcome to this listing, (please scroll down to read the full details of this listing and watch the short video). Here I have for sale a CUSTOM-MADE variable speed drive motor to suit the SHERLINE 4000 & 4400 lathes.This CUSTOM-MADE variable speed motor is 100 watts 230 volts and runs off a standard 220/240 volt 13 amp house hold power supply with no problem. DESPITE WHAT THE OLD VIDEO BELOW SAYS, PLEASE NOTE THAT. THIS SALE IS JUST FOR THE MOTOR ONLY.
COMPLETE WITH THE CUSTOM MADE MOUNTING BRACKET AND PULLEY + DRIVE BELT. This motor is neat and compact. It is quite powerful, as it has an reduction gearbox with all steel gears. I built this motor in 2019 and I also fabricated the steel bracket because my old SHERLINE lathe was missing its motor and motor bracket at the time when I got it. This motor is in full working order but the downside is it is quite LOUD!It sounds very much like a food mixer! Please watch the video below and bare this in mind if the noise will be an issue for you? The motor bracket just screws straight on to the rear of your SHERLAINE lathe's headstock with 2 x m5 screws with. No modification needed to your lathe. The motor then is mounted on to the custom-made bracket via 2 x m5 screws.
The aluminium drive pulley then fits onto the 8mm motor shaft that has a flat ground on it. The motor pulley is then secured tightly to the motor drive shaft by a small grub screw on the motor pulley using a small thin blade screwdriver be careful not to overtighten!The supplied rubber belt then goes from the motor drive pulley to the big headstock pulley and that's it. PLEASE STUDY ALL 11 PHOTOS as they form a very big part of the DESCRIPTION in this listing and they show this same motor set up on my previous old SHERLINE 4000 LATHE for. This motor is intended to fit the SHERLINE 4000 lathes but it is possible if one is artful enough! To adapt this motor to fit onto an Unimat SL lathe bracket and use it with the supplied motor pulley to drive that lathe instead of a SHERLINE. It is also possible that this motor could be adapted to fit and drive some watchmaker's lathes and small mills if desired. (This motor/gearbox turns clockwise when looking at it from the motor drive shaft side and is not reversible).
I have put the video below for anyone who's interested to check out this motor working! DISPITE WHAT THE VIDEO SAYS, PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SALE IS JUST FOR THE MOTOR ONLY COMPLETE WITH THE CUSTOM MADE MOUNTING BRACKET AND THE MOTOR DRIVE PULLEY + DRIVE BELT. Please note that there is no Local Collection allowed due to me having to follow my mother's rules and keep her happy! THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
