THE MINI Lathe has long been a popular part of the Warco range, always representing excellent value for money and a great introduction to metal turning.  Now there is an all new Warco Super Mini Lathe. The entire stock sold out immediately after they became available. More will be available soon.

Higher specification includes: Induction hardened and ground bed ways, longer tailstock base for added rigidity, over centre clamp on tailstock - eliminating tedious nut clamping, larger motor and digital readout for spindle speeds.

Other features include:

  1. Powerful new 550W motor

  2. Distance between centres increased to 350mm

  3. American made printed circuit board for reliable performance

  4. Induction hardened and ground bedways

  5. Large diameter spindle supported on bearings

A range of standard accessories are supplied with the lathe, including:

  1. 80mm 3 jaw self-centring chuck with inside and outside jaws

  2. Faceplate

  3. Four-way tool post

  4. Crew cutting facility

  5. Swarf tray and rear splash back

  6. Thread dial indicator

The Super Mini Lathe is supplied in metric or imperial.  A metric lathe will cut metric threads and an imperial lathe will cut imperial threads.  To cut metric threads on an imperial machine or imperial threads on a metric machine, it is necessary to add the appropriate conversion kit.

The Warco Super Mini Lathe is supplied with a full guarantee and a comprehensive range of spare parts is available, plus a wide selection of Mini Lathe tools.

Every machine is tested by Warco’s engineers, and comes with a full test report.  Bare metal surfaces are protected by a thin layer of grease which is easily removed with a cloth.  No further preparation is required. Simply plug in and enjoy.

Cost is £499 (June 2012) which includes VAT and delivery.
