Thread: Warco VMC milling machine clones
04/08/2017 14:33:28

Hi All. Can anyone please point me in the direction of any companies in the UK, other than Chester and Toolco, that import a Warco VMC clone?

I'm looking to buy a version with an R8 spindle but none of those mentioned above have one in stock at present. I want an R8 model because I already have R8 tooling.

If anyone is considering upgrading from one of these to a Bridgeport or similar then I would be interested in buying your VMC or clone. Sadly I do not have the space for a Bridgeport.

Hi John.

Sorry to hear about you misfortunes I only came across your post because I did a search for "Warco VMC" as I am considering buying one.

How about temporary self-storage until you find a new place? Not the cheapest option but surely cheaper than selling kit you've spent time modifying and setting up at a loss and starting all over again. There are plenty of self storage places here in Nottingham, or even rent a garage for a few months.

Hope you manage to get it all sorted.
