Warco Super Mini Lathe - Quality Hobby Lathe

The Mini Lathe has long been a popular part of the Warco range, always representing excellent value for money and a superb introduction to metal turning.  Continuing on this commitment to entry level metal working small lathes, we're proud to have Warco Super Mini Lathe a part of our range.


The full specification and ubeatable quality of this machine shows just how different it is from lesser alternatives on the market.  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 rpm.


Some of the features you can expect from this high quality hobby lathe include:

  • Powerful new 550W motor
  • Distance between centres now increased to 350mm
  • American made printed circuit board for reliable performance
  • Induction hardened and ground bedways
  • Large diameter spindle supported on bearings
  • Each Mini Lathe is supplied with an individual accuracy test report
  • Supplied ready for immediate use


Warco Mini Lathe


Supplied with a range of standard accessories, including:

  • 80mm 3 jaw self centering chuck with inside and outside jaws
  • Faceplate
  • 4 way tool post
  • Threading facility
  • Swarf tray and rear splash back
  • Thread dial indicator

All of the above with no extra charge!


The Warco 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.


As with all of our lathes for sale, the Warco Super Mini Lathe is supplied with a full guarantee for peace of mind.  Rest assured we also have a hugely comprehensive range of spare parts available should you need them at any point, as well of course a wide selection of Mini Lathe tools.


Every single machine is fully tested and checked by us before leaving our premises, and will come 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 - once it arrives via our no extra charge delivery service, simply plug in and enjoy your new lathe.
