I needed a bit more room to swing a mount for a winch motor while using the rotary table on my Sherline mill. The piece was hitting the track on the vertical column. I made the spacer blocks shown in the attached photo to raise the column and move the mill head forward.

It gives me the added room I needed without sacrificing rigidity.

Holes in the bench below the column allow me to install or remove the block without moving the base of the mill.

Nice job Roger. I would like to test drive the Sherline equipment some day. Small machines fascinate me.
