Warco Open Day

For decades now we have been hosting the Warco Open Day, an event where anyone is welcome to visit our showroom and premises. In recent years it has expanded more than we could have ever anticipated, with visitors from all across the country and what seems like increasing attendance every time.

At the event, we offer the opportunity for our customers to view our entire product range and buy in person, with many show only discounts and special offers. We always like to keep our prices as low as possible as it means our customers are happy, and we try to make this especially the case for anyone who has taken the trouble to visit us in person for the show.

Set in the heart of rural Surrey, you are welcome to pay us a visit.

Everyone is welcome, and in normal circumstances we hold a few of these events a year. The best way to find out when the next show is and to keep up to date with any other event happenings is the Warco Open Day page.

Another draw to the show is the second hand section, where we always have a barn full of used and ex-display metalworking machinery for sale. In the morning of the event, this part is especially popular, with queues forming well before opening of customers looking to grab a bargain.

Below are some pics of this section in previous years. These are all from inside the barn on our site, where at the event we host the used machines and tools on offer.

Warco at the London Model Engineering Exhibition 2015

The Warco stand at the London Model Engineering Exhibition

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 – virtually our entire range of metalworking equipment, including just about anything 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.

Winter Open Day 2014

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 this Spring. In the meantime, you can keep up to date with the latest Open Day news on our Exhibitions page. Original post below.

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. Find a preview of the new items on offer 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.
