We’ve just released an all new woodworking brochure. Featuring full colour pages, it’s packed with detailed information on every woodworking product we sell.
The brochure includes all new machinery such as a the Mini Wood Combination Machine, Mini Wood Lathe, a new range of woodturning drive centres and the all new Sliding Table Saw. Also featured are all the popular products that were already in our our woodworking machinery range, like the Planer Thicknesser, 1100 Lathes, Chisel Mortise Machines and Bandsaws – plus a large selection of machine tool accessories.

Another Warco Open Weekend has passed, and it was a great success. The turnout of clubs was exceptional: We had the Society of Model & Experimental Engineers (SMEE) displaying some of their finest work, Guildford Model Engineering Society were on hand with a range of finished and part finished models, and live steam models, while Liphook Modellers were also showcasing their latest finished and part-finished models. JB Tooling and College Engineering had plenty of metal for sale, while Camden Miniature Steam were there, along with the Surrey Association of Woodturners – promoting the art and craft of woodturning, with live demonstrations all weekend.
We also had a huge selection of tooling available all weekend, along with ex demo and second hand machinery, as well as of course our ranges of lathes and milling machines. All in all, we’re very happy with how the event went down, so our thanks to everyone who joined us this year.
Below is a selection of photos taken during the weekend.
For the full set of photos of the this year’s event, see the Warco Flickr – photos of previous years’ events can be found there too.
Today we’re happy to be announcing the launch of an all new website.
A little background first. Warco have been online for well over a decade now – we originally registered warco.co.uk back in 1997, pre-dating the registration of even google.com! (Incidentally, for more information and a little more background about Warco, see our new About Us page.) Since the beginning, keeping the business up to date with communications and technology has always been a central principle of Warco, and in that same vein we’re happy to launch our all new site.
Fully rebuilt from the ground up, we’ve striven to make our online shop streamlined everywhere you look. You’ll find it’s now easier to use, as freshly updated as it could possibly be, simple to navigate and with richer product details than ever before. It’s been a huge undertaking rebuilding the site from scratch, and we hope you’re happy with the results. Built with you the customer in mind, we’ve listened to your feedback and tailored an online shop where everything just works.
We’ve reshaped the site to be essentially centred around three different overview categories.
Next up, we have the Warco range of woodworking tools and machinery. In this category, we’ve launched a raft of new products alongside our large existing range of machines for woodworkers, which includes woodturning lathes, chisel mortice machines, planer thicknessers and a variety of wood lathe tools. Today sees the introduction of the all new Mini Woodworking Lathe. Very affordable, this machine is ideal for a range of precise level woodwork and represents a superb introduction to wood turning. Another new product is the Mini Wood Combination Machine. Offering nearly all the features of its full size counterpart, this new mini machine is both compact and versatile yet incorporates a planer thicknesser, saw, spindle moulder and morticer.
Finally, the Warco range of machines, tools and accessories for education – incorporating training centres, schools, colleges, academies and universities – all of which we have a long history of successfully supplying machine tools to. We’re always happy to offer a quote for larger orders – and can equip a workshop of any size. See the Education Machine Tools category for more details.
The full Warco brochure is also downloadable online now, so you can browse our entire product range in your own time. If you’re interested in forthcoming shows Warco will be exhibiting at, see the exhibitions page. There’s much more to see, so why not take a look for yourself? And if you have any feedback about the new site, we’d love to hear it.
We thought we’d share a little more about the Warco premises, and extend an invitation to anyone reading to visit. Open all week during office hours, our showroom is based in rural South West Surrey in Chiddingfold.
You can find us at Warco House, Fisher Lane, Chiddingfold, Surrey GU8 4TD.
Our showroom is open all through the working week, so you’re free to visit us anytime. Opening times are Monday to Thursday 8:30am – 5:00pm / Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm.
Coming up next on the show calendar is the London Model Engineering Exhibition.
The show runs from 22nd-24th January 2010, and is the south’s largest model engineering and and modelling exhibition.
Located at the Great Hall, Alexandra Palace (London, N22 7AY), the show is now in its 14th year and will feature over 1000 scale models from the age of steam to the present day.
Opening times are: 10.00am – 5.30pm Friday and Saturday / 10.00am – 4.00pm Sunday
We will be exhibiting most of our ever expanding range of lathes, milling machines, sheet metal machinery and bandsaws. Together with the machine tool range there will be a huge selection of associated tooling including vices which are unique to us, rotary tables and all manner of workshop equipment.
As usual, there will be unique special offer prices for many items on our large stand, so be sure to pay us a visit. We will be located at Stand No: 102 – 109.
