Bristol Model Engineering & Hobbies Exhibition

July 24, 2013

Following on from another Warco Open Day, we’re now looking forward to the next even on the summer show calender – the Bristol Model Engineering & Hobbies Exhibition.  Held in Thorbury, Bristol, this is always a popular show down in the south west with a range of attractions for model engineers and hobbyists alike.

Live demonstrations will include wood turning, a selection of internal combustion engines, model boats, agricultural engines, model railways, indoor remote control helipcopters and aeroplates.  There will also be stirling engines, 3D printing, train rides, wokshop displays and much more – well worth a visit.

We’ll be there with a selection of our engineers’ tools, lathes and milling machines – with some show only discounted prices.

The address of the show:

Thornbury Leisure Centre
BS35 3JB

Dates: August 16th, 17th and 18th.

Warco Open Day Summer 2013

May 14, 2013

UPDATE 22.7.13:

We had a fantastic turnout at this year’s Summer event, with customers coming from all over the country to visit us.

As ever, it wouldn’t be what it is without our loyal customers who make the trip to visit us, so thank you.

We’re already planning another for later on in the year, with even more special deals lined up for that day. We’ll be announcing details of that event soon.


Following from another successful Harrogate Model Engineering Exhibition, we’re now looking forward to the next show on the calender – the Warco Summer Open Day.

We’ve fixed the date for this year’s Summer event for Saturday 20th July 2013, and it’s set to be as big as ever.  This summer, we’ll be opening our doors once again and displaying our full range of machines, tools, lathes, milling machines, accessories and much more. Many products will be on sale at show only prices, so if you’re considering buying something from us, making it to the Warco Open Day is always highly recommended.

There will be plenty of parking this time around – we’ll be using a whole field opposite – as well as onsite catering.


The Warco Open Day is held at our premises in Surrey – here’s our full address:

Warco House

Fisher Lane




As well as our full range of new tooling, we’ll also have on sale that day an ever popular selection of second hand and ex-demo machinery, tools and accessories – so there’ll be something for everyone.

Harrogate Model Engineering Exhibition 2013

UPDATE 14.5.13

This year’s event was a great success and we’re happy we made the trip up. Warco were represented with our full range of mills, lathes and assorted small tooling at show prices, if you made it up we hope you found what you were looking for!

We look forward to 2014’s show, and in the meantime here are some photos of the Warco stand at this year’s event.






Next up on the show calender is the Model Engineering Exhibition at Harrogate.

Warco have been doing this show alone for close to two decades now,  and it’s always been a firm favourite with the northern based model engineers. As ever, we’ll have a comprehensive stand with a range of machinery and tools for sale – of all sizes. So whether it’s a bandsaw blade or a milling machine you’re after, our team will be on hand to supply whatever Warco product you like.  We’ll also be offering a range of show only prices and special Harrogate only discounts, so it’ll be well worth paying a visit.


As well as coming to see us, the show is a good opportunity to find a range of the latest model and steam creations – there will be a comprehensive range on display from various clubs, societies and individuals from up and down the country – with over 1000 exhibits there really will be something for everyone.

Held at the Great Yorkshire Showground – HG2 8QZ, the show will run from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th May 2013.

You can find more information and book tickets on official show site here.

Warco Open Day Thanks

March 18, 2013

We’ve just had this year’s Spring Open Day, and we’d like to say a special thanks to all of loyal customers who braved the rain and made it down. Despite the gloomy weather, this year’s show was our most successful one day event ever.

Many of you came away with that particular machine you’d been waiting for, whether it was a milling machine, lathe or something smaller like that hard to find second hand bargain, and we were pleased to be of service that day.

At the time of writing, there are still some used and ex demo machines left over from the day, which you’re welcome to order from us the regular way over the phone. Keep an eye on the list here for more info.


In the meantime, thanks again to those of you we saw this Open Day, we’re already starting to plan the next one for the summer – more details on that event to follow.

All the best,
