Warco Lathes - the common Taiwanese "1122", "1124", "1224", "1236", 1325, 1336, 1340BH
"1340", "1327" & 2021 Lathe with a 6.5" centre height

Some of the names used were of actual manufacturers - or importers and agents - while others were entirely fictional - 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-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 Tida.
