I want to use my Sherline 5400 Mill to install bushings, but the more I look into this the more confused I am getting. I am not sure what I need to buy. First, I have decided that I would like to use KWM reamers and KWM bushings. I read in the Sherline Mill Manual that for “precision” cutting I should use a Collet 5/32 (#40) to hold the KWM reamers. At first, I thought this meant I do not need an adapter if I use the collet, then when I saw that KWM reamers have a small metal piece mounted perpendicular I wasn’t sure. My questions…what do I need to buy to use my Sherline Mill with KWM? Also, after doing research on this forum I plan to get started by buying reamers #2, #3 & #4 and bushings #14, 16, 38, 41. Does this sound good or are there other recommendations. I am just learning this system and hope I have explained this correctly. As always, thanks for the help.
