The Warco 1100 Range of Wood Turning (Wood Working) Variable Speed Lathes

March 8, 2010

Having shared a few insights and offers for some Warco metal working machines, we thought it was time to focus on our range of wood working variable speed lathes.  Our selection of woodturning lathes are very competitively priced (starting at just £275) and have proven to be extremely popular in recent years.

Our key range is centred on the 1100 Wood Lathe, 1100A Wood Lathe, 1100B Wood Lathe and 1642 Wood Lathe.

All of these are variable speed lathes.

Our most affordable lathe yet is the 1100.  This machine features a reliable and proven variomatic drive, and a four prong drive centre.  For high levels of flexibility, the head rotates 90° to allow large diameter turning in front of the bed.  There is a 150mm face plate, and furthermore a 300mm tool rest pivots for turning over bed or for large diameter turning when the head is rotated.

The 1100 is also available with a rigid cast iron stand for maximum stability, in the form of the 1100A.

Finally, to round up our focus on the 1100 range we have the 1100B Wood Lathe.  This machine features the reliable and proven variomatic drive system, rotating and indexable head to accommodate large diameter blow work over bed front, 300mm tool rest pivots to facilitate turning over bed and in front of bed, and 150mm face plate.

What differentiates the 1100B from the 1100 or 1100A is a larger centre height and larger turning diameter over bed, so this machine is ideally suited to larger wood turning tasks.  Crucially, the 1100B is twice as powerful from its 1100 counterpart (the motor is 1,100w versus 550w).

What we believe sets our wood lathes apart from alternatives is the vast range of additional accessories available, direct from us.  Everything you could possibly need for your wood lathe we can supply, including essentials such as woodturning chucks, drive centres and lathe chisels.

Remember too that all prices quoted included VAT and delivery.  If you’re interested in placing an order, please don’t hesitate to phone us on 01428 682929, or by visiting our online shop at – or jump straight to the wood working section of our homepage.
