HARRISON Lathe 12-inch swing (6.5-inch Centre height Model L6 Mk.1 - also badged, for some markets, as a 13-inch) - a model with "rounded" styling from the 1950s, a long, upwards-pointing lever on the face of the headstock and two spindle-speed change levers on the top. Instruction & Maintenance Manual and Parts Manual as useful Exploded Assembly Diagrams with a generic wiring diagram. Also includes screwcutting charts and the specific details of metric to inch unscrewing and the necessary gearbox-mounted chart that shows the Inch pitches generated in the 'metric positions' (this chart was missing from the original maker's publication).
