Hi all,

I'm trying to find some information about a lathe I just purchased. It's a Hipromac 1340. The manual that came with it shows a Dashin Prince lathe, so I assume those are the same thing. However, the company name listed in the manual seems to be a dead end. Are there any other lathes, such as a particular Grizzly, Jet, or whatever, that would share parts with these? I've heard a lot of these Asian made lathes are often sold under several different labels and models, even though they are the same machine. This one has a 1 3/8" spindle bore, and has a pull out knob to engage the feed rather than the usual lever. I figure that has to be a clue, as those strike me as somewhat unusual features.

Thanks!

Some were sold here in New Zealand under the Bramley name. I inherited my father in laws one. It is Taiwanese made in the 1980s. I found the Dashin Prince manual online, but I don’t think parts are available.
