Taiwanese "Generic" Belt-driven Headstock Lathe, Warco, etc. Manual

TAIWANESE belt-drive headstock lathes: A 2-Edition Manual for Taiwanese lathes - the most popular and common medium-sized model offered during the last 45 years being sold with a bewildering variety of names including: AB, Brazier’s TY110, Carolina, Grizzly DF-1224G, Enco, Dashin P4, Everest, Glen, Honden Visa, Husky PC-36, JET 10-24, Kin Shin, KS-3.5, Lantaine, Lin Huan, Lux-Cut, Manhattan, Mascot SS-23, McMillan ML-36 and ML-36G, MS, MSC, Peerless, Select, S.E.M.C.O., Stebbins, Warco, Wey YII Corp, TIDA TD-4A, 45A, 5A, etc. - "1122", "1124", "1224", "1236", "1340", "1327" & 2021, BH600, BH-600, etc.. Some of the names used were of actual manufacturers - or importers and agents - while others were entirely made-up - lathes sometimes arriving at the distributors with an envelope containing a selection of “fictional” nameplates. However, all versions and sizes appear to have been of mechanically identical design and construction with common Model designations being: “1122”, “1124”, “1224”, “1236”, “1340”, “1327”, TD-4A, TD-45A, TD-5A, TD-4AA, TD-45AA and, TD-5AA. Some minor differences have been found on the headstock including one model with a lever-operated backgear.
The publication consists of two Operation, Maintenance and Parts Manuals: one from a version often branded Warco and another for that listed as the Lantaine with Parts as clear, exploded-component drawings and Electrical Schematics including those from a late version of this lathe with a downward-pointing lever on the face of the headstock a vertical line of push-button switches on the left of the headstock's front face. Also has a copy of the Article about the lathes by Tony Griffiths of lathes.co.uk and a sample catalogue for the version Branded 'Warco' (the article with illustrations can be found here: http://www.lathes.co.uk/taiwan)
