Thread: Best place to buy materials
09/06/2021 08:29:17

Hi Robin

You could try FH Brundle for your steel . the price is £7.90 for 3m +vat 25mmx8mm. . I live in n.e. scotland and the delivery charge is £10. Could be worth a try.

Thread: Warco GH1236 vs Chester Crusader
15/10/2017 09:54:20

Hi Otley,

I bought Warco's GH1236 lathe about 4 years ago. I have not had any problems with it at all.

Another factor with Warco is they returned my phone calls which was not the case with Chester.

Hope this helps . I have no connection with Warco. Just a satisfied customer.

due to unforeseen financial circumstances it has taken a year to get the dro . next will come the fitting to the machine. hopefully all will go well . i've gone for magnetic scales from machine dro. putting the scales at the front of the table. i will post some photo's of the scales when completed.
