Thanks for the info, I think the warco wm 180 with dro would do the job, why is it that the model you want is out of stock?

That's the biggest stencil I have in stock but have just ordered 50mm and 60mm sets, they are expensive for what they are mind. 8)

Hi Phil
I have the Warco 250v with dro and it's a great machine over 2 years.
I have just had a WM 16vs milling machine with dro delivered as well and again it's great.

Hope this helps

Regards

Derek

Phil, good advice I was given was choose your lathe and then buy one size bigger. Looks as though Warco have the 240B in stock and it's not that much more, certainly cheaper than the Sealey job:

And no, I don't have shares in Warco or any commercial connection, much to the pity.

Hi Phil, I have had the Warco 240 for over 10 years, only problem was to replace the carbon brushes in the motor, that’s the only time it let me down, it come with its own tool kit and change wheels

Phil,
Just stunning on the detail and painting. I like how the tape peeled some of the paint - looks very realistic. If you do ground level photos it would be hard to tell your Chief is not the real deal. You seem to set the bar several notches higher on every build!
Best regards,
Bob

Hi Phil, I see with regret that the engine has not yet arrived, this morning I had this information from the traceability system:
on day 7, the shipment left the Italian national territory and was taken over by an English postal operator for delivery.
However I think it's an international problem, I still haven't received the bolts ordered on May 26th.
Grazie! Ivano

Hi Phil,

Thanks Ivano
