Fitment notes:

This milling attachment can be impeded by the standard splash guard on certain lathes.

  • New WM 250V machines are pre-supplied with larger rear splash guards that can accommodate the attachment.
  • Older WM 250 lathes require a larger rear splash guard to  fit this attachment.
  • WM 240 lathes require a larger rear splash guard to fit this attachment.

We can supply larger rear splash guards if you require one. Alternatively you can do without or modify one for unrestricted milling head movement.

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 rear a larger splash guard can always contact us for more help.
