MACHINISTS DON'T MAKE DO. THEY MAKE PARTS!

Our country was founded by makers and doers, so in honor of Independence Day, we here at Sherline Products, want to salute all you machinists out there who make your own parts. You don't settle for close-but-no-cigar, off-the-shelf parts. You show your independence by striving for precision with uncompromising accuracy when working on your projects. Keep on making, and Happy 4th of July!
