Base Plate for Lathe Rear Tool Post & Vertical Slide

WM 240 / WM 250 / WM 250V


All new product made exclusively for Warco.

Designed in house by Warco engineers, this base plate mounts to your lathe cross slide.

Once fitted, this will allow you to add a milling / vertical slide to your lathe.

Will also allow a Warco designed rigid rear tool post to fit to your lathe - with machined slot which engages with a tenon on the underside of the tool post to avoid rotation.

This base plate is designed to fit the WM 240, WM 250 and WM 250V Lathes.

(Note it is not compatible WM 240B, because that machine lacks the necessary cross slide slots.)
