Portass Lathes: no manuals were ever issued but there is a wonderful collection of (rare) Sales & Technical Specification Sheets, Individual Machine Catalogues, Illustrations, Accessories and "Letters of Recommendation" available: X.L., Mark V, Model X. Dreadnought (several versions including the 5-inch), Model S (several versions), Model 21/8", Model-de-Lux 21./8", Model Super, Heavy-duty 4-inch, Milling & Drilling Attachment, Lathes as supplied for branding as Zyto (etc.), shapers, 4-inch wood lathe, etc. To help with any Portass lathe I'd recommend a copy of the book "The Amateurs' Lathe".
All manuals are scanned at high resolution and supplied as a top-quality print, bound and on a superior 129g paper.
Unless otherwise stated, all manuals are in English.
