    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.

    • 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
