Warco metal working lathe – BH600 / BH900

This is an archived post. Since this originally appeared we’ve now discontinued this machine. Keep up to date with the latest Warco lathe range at warco.co.uk.

Since posting this it’s been brought to our attention that somebody is trying to sell a model incorrectly claimed to be equivalent to ours – please note that these are unauthorised and unrelated to Warco. We’ve been selling machines since 1975 and have only ever sold direct to customers, not via random internet traders.

We know that buying a lathe is a big investment, so it’s important to know you will get proper support even after years have passed – that’s why we invest heavily in spares and after salesbut unfortunately we are unable to help with copies or other non-Warco machines.

Original post below.


We thought we’d share a bit more of an insight into one of our larger lathes, the Warco BH600.

This machine is ideal for the school, professional engineer or model engineer alike.  Featuring hardened and ground bedways, generous capacity, this is a high quality and competitively priced belt drive lathe.

As standard, the machine includes a cabinet stand, 3 Jaw chuck with inside and outside jaws, a 4 Jaw chuck, faceplate, fixed and travelling steadies, two dead centres and a four way toolpost.

This lathe also features a power cross and longitudinal feed through dedicated shaft, removeable gap – dowelled for relocation, back gear for maximum torque in low speed range.
