Default Sweet Looking Lathe

Not sure if this lathe is new to the market but does anyone have or know anything about the Harvey T40 Lathe?

By the time I get one of those critters here I could have a Oneway with a bucket of chucks and extras with money left over. Is that made in Asia or the US?

I don't know where this lathe is made. Looks pretty solid. I know Oneways are Great lathes but I personally can't stand the look of them. If I am going to play on one daily I would like something that is not so Ugly ( my opinion)

I am sure you could get a body shop to give a OneWay a custom paint job!
If a chef can have a custom painted refrigerator and mixer, no reason not to have a customized lathe

Don't want to get Oneway owners stirred up here. It is not the paint job on them I was referring to but I will leave it at that.
The question I asked is has anyone heard of the Harvey line of lathes. The T40 Turbo looks like a nice solid lathe to turn Pens on ( my opinion)

For me with exchange, shipping, and taxes the Canadian made machine makes more sense and as long as I don't leave it outside I won't loose it in a snowdrift.;) The T40 would be cheaper than the Robust Scout though which is in the same category. It always boils down to what you want and can afford so go for it if it makes your skin tingle. Let us know what you think of it if you do take the plunge.

I'll add that I don't have a Oneway. Just wish I did. :)

I remember looking at this Harvey Lathe write up last year.
The black and gold looks very sleek...it looks good in the photos.
The write up is very convincing......but how is this lathe in operation? What about parts and service? And 220V only....Leg set almost $550 extra.
..available to continental 48 only...sorry Pete!
I have not heard a peep about it otherwise.

My choice short of a full size lathe 16” and larger would have to be the OneWay 1224. It is a very solid lathe that runs like a dream and is available in 120V and 220V....and it is a lot less $. Check it out!

Like Pete, I don’t have a OneWay either but have turned on several and would definitely go for one if I could.....still kicking myself for not grabbing Mack’s 1224 several years ago.

Pete I agree with you, in fact the Oneways are made not to far down the road from me ( I am also Canadian ) . I have a new Jet on the UPS truck a day away from Delivery. this is to add to the 2 Jets that I already have.
I just saw this Harvey pop up and looks like a pretty nice lathe to turn pens on. My small shop will not accept a floor model lathe.
Harvey also makes a T50 and T60 lathe that look like they would compete with some of the big boy lathes.

Two jets with another on the way. I think you are almost at squadron strength. :)
