MONTCLAIR, Calif. - Harvey Industries, a manufacturer of woodworking machinery in 105 countries, has entered the US market with the T40 Turbo, a bench lathe designed for turners who lack the space for a large floor lathe but require full-size lathe capabilities.
 
The company says the Harvey brand had been known in woodworking markets everywhere except North America where it has operated only as an OEM supplier to many U.S. machinery brands
 
Mark Strahler, Harvey Industries’ U.S. marketing manager, describes the T40 as “crazy smart” in that the lathe senses resistance and increases or decreases torque in response. The company says it takes just two milliseconds to change speeds in response to torque demand and with the digital readout, the user will always know the RPM, from 60 to 4300.
 
The T40 Turbo Lathe features an industrial servo motor system which serves as the spindle drive, enabling the variable speed T40 to follow the turner’s dynamic cuts with consistency. 
 
Weighing 178 pounds, the T40 is built with premium grade, precision ground castings and oversized ball bearings with a headstock that swivels 90 degrees.
