      Taiwanese Gear-Head Lathe Models
      1330, 1340, 1430 & 1440

      An Operation, Maintenance & Parts Manual is available for this lathe


      Made from around the mid 1980s, this typically-Taiwanese geared head lathe was very well specified and of decent build quality. A number of versions was offered including the 6.5-inch centre "1330" with 30 inches between centres; the 6.5-inch centre height Model "1340" with 40 inches between centres; the Model "1430" with a 7-inch centre height and admitting 30 inches between centres and the 7-inch centre height Model "1440" with 40 inches between centres. In later years other variations were made, including the "1322" - and probably others/ Although their capacity differed, all versions were of virtually identical specification with a 7.5-inch wide bed, a cross-slide travel of 6.5 inches and a top slide on the two smaller versions with a travels of 3.375" and on the two larger at 3.5 inches.
      While all types are found with and without a detachable gap bed, all had a screwcutting and feeds gearbox giving 32 inch pitches from 4 to 56 t.p.i., 32 metric from 0.4 to 7 mm, 32 Diametral from 8 to 120 D.P. and 32 Module from 0.4 to 7 MOD. A cabinet stand seems to have been standard, usually with a pull-out chip tray and a full-length splashback, as was power sliding and surfacing feeds and a tailstock spindle equipped with a micrometer dial and ruler graduations. A very useful range of spindle speeds was provided that, depending up the frequency of the electricity supply, were usually set between either 45 to 1800 r.p.m. or 75 to 2000 r.p.m. The exact specification did vary from market to market, some having dual inch/metric dials, other just single calibrations; some had full coolant equipment and a machine light as standard but in others where you had to pay extra. However, in general they all appear to have been fitted, ex-factory, with either a 2 or 3 h.p. motor and third-rod control of the spindle stop, start and reverse, a footbrake, chuck guard, a thread-dial indicator (check to make sure that its gear is keyed to the spindle and not just held on a with a spring washer), a D1-4" Camlock nose on a 1.5-inch bore spindle, a 4-way toolpost, No. 3 Morse taper tailstock, fixed and travelling steadies, centres and a small tool kit..
