Lathe Rear Tool Post

WM 280V & WM 290V


Another Warco exclusive.

In response to customer demand, we're happy to be introducing a rear tool post designed specifically to fit WM 280 and WM 290 lathes (including WM 280V as well as older 280 and 280VF models).

Designed in house by Warco engineers.


  • Designed for parting off from the rear - which dramatically reduces the large spindle loading compared to a front mounted parting of system.
  • Parting off from the rear also avoids blade or tip damage experienced when parting off from the front.
  • The corresponding base plate has a machined slot which engages with a tenon on the underside of the tool post to avoid rotation.



  • Tool post dimensions: 53.8mm x 49mm x 101mm
  • Tool capacity: 24.5mm

Base plate mounts directly onto lathe cross slide, allowing you to fit this rear tool post.


The following parting off tools are compatible with this device:
