    Fitment notes

    • This attachment requires space at between the back of the cross slide and rear splash guard to fit.
    • New WM 250V lathes are all pre-supplied with larger rear splash guards that will accommodate the attachment.
    • For older WM 250 and all WM 240 lathes, the milling attachment can be impeded by the standard splash guard.
    • We can always supply larger rear splash guards to overcome this if required.
    • Alternative solutions are to do without the rear guard or modify one to enable unrestricted milling head movement.
    • This is not compatible with glass optical DRO systems, because of lack of clearance for scale with milling head attached.
    • If you need any advice about fitting, or to enquire whether your machine already has a larger splash rear guard can always contact us for more help.
