Warco Super Mini Lathe - Bench Hobby Lathes

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 unbeatable 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.

 

We've been selling machines just like this for over 40 years now, so you're in safe hands with Warco. It was us who invented the term Mini Lathe, and demanded big improvements seen on today's machine, like hardened and ground bed ways,  always specifying the best quality chucks, very reliable US electronics and the largest range of standard equipment included for no hidden charge.

 

A firm fixture on model engineers workshop benches, we've always had very positive feedback from our customers with Super Minis.

 

Some of the features you can expect from this 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
  • With a back gear for low and high speed ranges
  • Supplied ready for immediate use

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 conceivable spare part you could ever need is available from our huge inventory right here in the UK.

 

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.
