Has anyone been to the Warco open days? Are there deals to be had?

Yes But Depends on what you are after,

Several years ago I picked up my Alpine Mill/Drill quite cheaply from one of their open days, just about to sell it back to them as I have just purchased their WM 16

Enjoy the day but beware of the Parking as it is limited and gets quite busy

Also well worth going on a non-open day. All the room you need and when I ordered my lathe I just asked for a deal and got a tailstock chuck and a set of HS tools. I was very happy and I have been back to measure up a mill. Very helpful staff nice pubs nearby...

They are worth the visit, the car parking has been better lately because they have used the field on the other side of the road.

There are bargains to be had, particularly machine stands and cabinets.

They also do drinks and burgers on their open days.

I know it may vary but what kind of discount do they give on new machines on the day? Looking at the WM18 mill, but it is the limit of my budget.

In my experience buying new you do not get money off the machines, but they throw in accessories. I bought my WM16 at one and they threw in the machine vice, a set of mt2 collets and a set of end mills. When I bought the band saw, I got spare blades. The second hand barn is always worth a visit. They have used machines and lots of other bits and bobs. At the last one I got a virtually new HV6 rotary table with a chuck already fitted for £90. The chuck alone is £80 new. But get there early before it opens to get the bargains.
