I live quite close to Chester and did visit for things at first (around the year 2000). They never had what I wanted and I was always told to visit the website. This told me that everything was coming from China on a just in time basis. For anyone out there who received a spare part for a faulty new machine quickly, then they were more than likely receiving something from another complete machine in stock.
I have visited some of their open days and selected various cast offs. I bought a bandsaw once in an original scrappy box. The returns letter about the faults was still in the bottom of the box. It was easily fixed (spring tension on the arm too great, and too much gearbox oil looking like an oil leak) but they had made no attempts on fixes and obviously not even taken it out of the box!
About 5 years ago I was in Guildford for a wedding and made a point of visiting Warco. I wish they were my local.

Do we need another company bashing thread?

Asking someone what they found wrong with their new purchase is company bashing?? If you read all of the thread you will see both positive and negative remarks about several companies. In the mean time it might be that we can help Jack sort out whatever the perceived issues are. I have a Chester DB10 that needed a lot of fettling but now it is a very good lathe with real accuracy.

Well after all the effort members put into giving JackM advice on making his purchase, it would be nice if we knew the final outcome.

Hopper I am with you on that and we might also be able to sort out any concerns that he has, unless of course they are genuine short comings with the lathe.
