The Mini Lathe has long been a popular part of the Warco range, always representing top value for money and an excellent introduction to metal turning. Compact size, ideal for bench mounting.
Continuing with our long standing commitment to affordable hobby lathes, we're proud to have this smal metalworker as a part of our range. With a number of improvements from the previous model, we now source this machine from the same supplier as our larger lathes, giving a real edge on quality and offering features usually associated with professional level machines.
The best Warco Mini Lathe yet. Upgrades include:
Also now fitted with metal leadscrew handwheel and calibrated dial at no extra cost - an accurate, sensitive longitudinal feed.
Other features that make our machine special remain. These include hardened and ground bedways, digital rev counter and rigid tail-stock together with a cam locking mechanism.
All of the above included with each machine for no extra charge.
The New Warco Super Mini Lathe is available 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.
We've been selling machinery just like this for over four decades now, so you're in safe hands with Warco. It was Warco who invented the term Mini Lathe, and have demanded big improvements seen on today's machine, like metal gears throughout, hardened / ground bed ways, always specifying the best quality chucks, very reliable US made electronics and the large range of standard equipment included for no extra charge.
As with all of our lathes for sale, the Warco Super Mini is supplied with a 12 month warranty for peace of mind. We invest heavily in spare parts, meaning we have a hugely comprehensive range of spare parts available should you need them, as well as a wide selection of Mini Lathe tools. Every conceivable spare part you could ever need is available from our inventory right here in the UK.
Every single one is fully tested and checked by us before leaving our premises, and will come with an accuracy test report. Bare metal surfaces are protected by a thin layer of grease which is easily removed with a cloth. No extra charges for UK mainland delivery.
