We’ve just released the latest Warco metalworking catalogue.
With 100+ colour pages of machinery and tools, it’s a handy way to see our range in one place.
If you have already requested a copy, thank you and will be with you shortly. If you don’t think you’re on the list and would like one, get in touch for your free copy.
We’ve noticed more and more people keen to fit glass optical digital readout systems to their machines, but found existing systems too expensive to justify, especially for home workshop and small scale engineering businesses.
With that in mind, we introduced an all new glass optical system specifically designed for metalworking lathes and mills at an affordable price.
This system has the added advantage of using small section scales, so where space is tight on smaller machines like the WM 14 or WM 180 / 250 lathes there is still no space issue.
Because this system is sold for self fitting, there’s a big saving. Each counter two comprehensive manuals – 1x operation instructions and 1x guide to fitting. You can read more about the counter shown above here.
If you aren’t using coolant on your machine and don’t require a waterproof system, even cheaper options than this exist.
This digital readout counter in combination with the corresponding scales is a cheap alternative to the more professional level systems. You can find these here.

We receive a lot of requests from people asking us if we have any videos of our products. With that in mind it was lucky an excited customer of ours shared this video he made introducing the Warco WM 180 lathe.
It’s a pretty good introduction to the machine, especially if you haven’t seen one in person yet.
We enjoyed it, hopefully you will too.
We’re very fond of the WM 180 here, it’s one we’ve been selling for over 15 years now and has long been amongst our favourite small lathes, and hundreds of them have made their way into happy engineering and home workshops over the years. Read more about the specs here.
This January sees the London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace.
With over a thousand models on display, lectures and some of the finest quality model engineering displays in the country, it promises to be another top weekend.
The event will be well worth paying a visit if you’re in and around the south east and are interested in model engineering.
We will be exhibiting with a large stand, bringing along the majority of our lathes and milling machines, as well as bandsaws, grinders, polishers and sheet metal tools. We will also have a huge range of smaller engineering tools. We will be bringing along virtually our entire range of metalworking tools, including just about any tool for a lathe or mill you could need – it will all be there at special show only prices. We will also have many brand new product lines on display for sale at the same time.
Dates are 16th to 18th January 2015.
Keep up to date with Warco exhibitions here.

We’ve always been passionate about education and the benefits of equipping a new generation with engineering skills, so some of our most rewarding work is working with schools and education facilities to supply ranges of machinery for students to learn from.
From small scale private training facilities to state of the art new build academies, we’ve been involved with projects at every end of the education spectrum and we’re proud to have been involved with each one.
Recently, we supplied a range of machinery to another new facility, the WMG Academy for Young Engineers in Coventry and the opening was covered in the Coventy Telegraph.
You can read more here: Coventry Telegraph on the new WMG Academy.
This new state of the art facility will be teaching students vocational and practical skills, gearing them up to work in the industry and truly expand their prospects for the future. With a focus on automotive, aerospace and manufacturing, the new academy is working in conjunction with the University of Warwick and partners including Jaguar Land Rover.
It was exciting for us to be involved and we were able to supply a range of machinery tailored around the very specific requirements of the teaching facility. Full details of the academy can be found at wmgacademy.org.uk.
We’re highly aware safety is a paramount in a school or college environment, so we always specify stop switches, spindle brakes and other precautionary measures, any everything we sell is compliant with all the latest legislation. We work with highly qualified and talented individuals who are certified to handle any aspect of machine maintenance, safety and installation.
Now that a new term has started, it’s good to hear that the machines we supplied to facilities over the school breakdown period are already being put to good use.

Update: We had a fantastic turnout at this year’s Winter Open Day. Our thanks to all of our loyal customers and many new faces that made it down to us for the day. We’re already planning the next event for Spring 2015. In the meantime, you can keep up to date with the latest Open Day news on our Exhibitions page.
Next up on the show calender is the forthcoming Warco Open Day on November 8th 2014.
This show will feature our entire range of new metalworking machinery and tools, with just about everything at special show only prices, so it promises to be a good chance to pick up a bargain. There will be on site catering, free entry and the chance to check out all of our products in the flesh. In addition, we’ll have displays showcasing the large volume of new products we’ve been introducing to our range over the last few months. For a preview of the new items on offer, check here.
As well as new tools, we’ll also have just about more used and ex demo tools than ever before. We regularly take machines in part exchange, take part in workshop clearances and have older showroom machines to offload, and they end up being offered for sale at our Open Days at low prices. There will be a barn full of used tools for sale, so if you’re after that elusive second hand deal the event could well be well worth a trip.
The Warco Open Day is among our favourite events of the year, it’s a great chance for us to speak to some of our loyal customers in person, which is always welcome.
You can find us at:
Opening times are 9am – 2pm.
On Saturday 8th November 2014.
All are welcome!
