Harrison "13-inch" and "15-inch" (identical apart from centre height) and badged variously as the 13-inch, 15-inch and 155, 165, 190 and "1300". These very distinctive late-model lathes differ from the earlier 155 and 165 L6 Mk. 2 types in having the two spindle-speed levers pointing downwards on the front face of the headstock (instead of on top), large embossed sheet-aluminium covers on the face of headstock and apron and an enclosed screwcutting gearbox operated only by rotary lever control - there being no sliding, spring-loaded indent lever as used on the older versions Operator's Instruction Manual and Spare Parts Manual as clear Sectional Drawings - which have been scanned at very high resolution and many enlarged to full-page size. Includes a copy of the maker's Sales and Specification Catalogue. A picture of this lathe type can be seen here: http://www.lathes.co.uk/harrison/page17.html
