    I can only find up to a 1/2" tool holder? Anyone know where I can get or how to adapt to a 5/8" tool holder for a Sherline? Thanks!

    Have you got a mill, If so make one out of mild steel or alum. I made some out of ALUM Then used the T nut off a sherline one and got me a bolt/screw to fit. Just got a few Cap screws to hold the bit. Even made a rocker type

    Several options:
    • Buy a blank end mill holder from Sherline, bore it and tap the side for a set screw.
    • Bore an existing end mill holder.
    • Make an endmill holder on your lathe.
    • Buy a Beall Tools ER-32 chuck and hold it with a 5/8" collet. This is the most accurate and flexible of your options.
    By the way, a 5/8" end mill is honking big end mill for a Sherline lathe. What are you doing that requires that large a cutter? That tool is almost as large as the spindle and will generate a lot of cutting force so I'm just curious.
