Peerless 14" metal lathe
This lathe is a Taiwanese lathe manufactured in 1983. It was really made in Taiwan on the contrary of the todays lathes which are designed in Taiwan but made in China.

The max. diameter over the bed is 360 mm (11") and the max. diameter over the compound slide is 140 mm (5.5"), bed length 850 mm (33.1/2").

The cutter holder is a "Multifix" which can be adjusted with a fine screw in the Z-axis to center the cutter. The cutter can be swivelled in 15deg positions so that X and Y axis can be cut with the same cutter when necessary

As I had larger workpieces to do in mind, I decided to look for a larger lathe and sold this one at the end of 2001.
