It has speed control, full specs here: http://www.sherline.com/dimen.htm

As to accessories, if you mean this link: http://www.arceurotrade.co.uk/Catalogue ... -Plus-Mill

You get a collet set and clamp set.

These are the Sherline equivalents:

I think the Sieg ones are probably better for some heavier duty jobs, but the Sherline is so wonderfully adaptable that it was an obvious choice for me.

For example the mill column configuration allows 8 axis movement:

The Sieg on the other hand is completely fixed.

You can still get something like a tilt angle table though: http://www.sherline.com/3750inst.htm

If you want I can share some pdf shopping lists LeMaudit had prepared for me before I bit the bullet ;)

For most jobs, no... but if you get the Sieg defnintely add to your shopping list a tilting table and rotary table.

do you mind sending me the PDFs? So I can see what I'd get :)


PM me your email address, I'll see if I can dig them up.

A rotary table is on my list :), however, I haven't thought a part I can't make without the 8 axis...

Took a look at the sherline, the sieg definitely has more power, and to me that's important, I'm need for a lathe is because I wanted to turn steel, and extra power will save me precious time. Also the sherline will cust me an extra 500 dollars without counting with shipping.
Now I'm just deciding rather order the SC2+SX2 from sieg for 1000euro/ SC4+SX2 from sieg for 1500 or the SC3+SX2 from british retailer for 1500 but come with some accessories that I don't know what for yet.
The SC2 has 500w brushless motor, about 300mm between centers, about 600 dollars
The "SC3"(I didn't find this model in the official sieg product list!) has 500w brushless motor but about 400mm between centers, 600 pounds.
The SC4 has 1000w brushless motor and about 400mm between centers, 1050 dollars.
The only advantage of SC3 to 2 is bigger, I don't think that would worth the difference of price. The SC4 is bigger and stronger, but I don't know if 300mm is enough for me and instead of spending my money here and use them for the necessary tools.

Think about it this way, drill chuck plus 10mm drill is about 200mm long, so if you have 300mm between centres, the longest piece you can drill a 10mm hole through is 10cm.

But if I want to drill though something longer than 100mm I can reverse it so it means I could drill though 200mm :p joke aside, I have never drilled holes deeper then 50mm, 100 isn't so bad... Also the SC4 is 1380 dollars, I was wrong.
