Warco WM 180 lathe unboxing video

We recently received some requests for a video of our WM 180 lathe, so with that in mind it was lucky a customer of ours shared with us this footage of him taking one out of the box.

We thought it was a pretty good introduction to the machine, especially if you haven’t seen one in person yet. It’s only a few minutes long, you can check it out below.



We’re very fond of the WM 180 here. We first introduced it more than 15 years ago as an entry level option and it’s fair to say it has long been amongst most popular small bench top lathes.

We regularly hear back positive reviews from our customers about machines they bought over a decade ago still going strong.

Ideally suited to smaller scale engineering projects, the compact size means it’s most often bought by folks using one as part of a home workshop such as model engineers and hobby metalworkers.
