A manual is available for this lathe




If the nameplate is missing and you don't have a ruler to measure the centre height, the 15-inch Version (Model 190) model can be instantly identified by its long foot-brake, an item missing from the 13-inch (Model 165).
A dedicated manual is available for this range of lathes. Some version had a row of rotary switches arranged in a line across the face of the stand beneath the headstock (as above) while others included a 4-spoke capstan handwheel with various arrangements of switches below and to the side. If your Harrison differs, the writer would be pleased to have photographs.

4-spoke capstan-handle rotary switch arrangements

A rare version of the late-model 15-inch but fitted with the earlier tumbler-style
screwcutting and feeds' gearbox. A special combined manual is available for this lathe




Harrison 15-inch (also badged as the 190) with a full screwcutting gearbox

A rare version of the 15-inch with a simpler, 3-lever screwcutting and feeds gearbox
