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, The Bramley, Busy-Bee, Carolina, Grizzly DF-1224G, Dashin P4, Elpha DF-1224G, Elpha YP-900, Enco, Everest, Forbes Glen, Hafco AL350A, Honden Visa, Himount,  Husky PC-36, Huvema HU23, JET-1024,  Kin Shin, KS-3.5, Lantaine, Leopard, Lin Huan, Lux-Cut, Lylak, Manhattan, Mascot SS-23, McMillan, Mikron Mk-24, MS, MSC, Peerless, Romac, Select, S.E.M.C.O., Stebbins, Warco, Wey YII Corp, etc. - 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”, “1224A, “1236”,  “1340”, “1327”, 2021, DR-1224G,YP-900, Mk-24 Lathes, PC-36, HU23, SS23, AL350A, DF-1224G and others. 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)
