I've had a Warco WM250 for about 10 years and has done everything and more I have asked of it. Apart from fitting a VFD and motor I've had no real trouble with it.

Can I keep this thread going, because if it is the company I think it is myself and another person have a vested interest in it. Ie we are owed money.

Pm for you Geoff.
Thread: WM250 thread cutting
23/09/2017 17:57:52
Dave, same you I think I've only screwcut on my lathe a small handfull of times in 10 years I normally use a tailstock die holder. I only needed to cut the 20TPI 1"dia thread to make a puller to remove the clutch hub on my 57 Triumph Thunderbird.
