product description

Warco WM 240B Belt Drive Lathe


This lathe is a direct response to high demand from our customers for just such a machine. We had many requests for a straightforward, belt drive machine from those who prefer such a metal turning speed selection, and the pure simplicity that belt drive offers. The Warco WM 240B is the ideal solution for those after an all new and exceptionally well built belt driven lathe.


Based on our well established WM 240 Variable Speed Lathe, and offering all the same levels of equipment and reliability - the significant change being the belt drive - the new Warco WM 240B is already proving to be a hit and a popular addition to our range of lathes.


Features include:

  • Induction hardened and ground double vee bedway
  • Adjustable gibs to slideways
  • Off set facility to tailstock
  • Range of spindle speeds 125-2000rpm
  • Large cross slide with two full length tee slots
  • Tailstock quill engraved metric and imperial
  • Powerful reversible motor
  • Straightforward belt drive with 6 different speeds
  • Metric and imperial thread cutting
  • Zero/friction dials
  • Thread dial indicator

The build quality of these lathes is excellent, with each machine  is truly built to last.
