Warco lathe - stock code 5671

A small back-geared, screw-cutting lathe. Quite impressed with this one for what is obviously a small, budget machine - it's quiet in operation, has a continuously variable spindle speed with good torque right down to low speeds. Complete with a three jaw chuck, four-way tool post, thread dial indicator, halogen work light and tailstock drill chuck.

Mounted on a swarf tray with rubber feet underneath, which would make it quiet enough to use indoors if you have a wife who is tolerant that way. From the condition of the bed and ways, it has seen little serious use.

We don't have keys for either the three jaw or tailstock chucks, although these are inexpensive to buy.
