Logan Turret Lathes Montgomery Ward Logan Shaper
Logan Technical Literature is available
Once under the control of the Houdaille Industries Inc., the Logan range was consolidated into 11, 12 and 14-inch models. The 11-inch was listed as the Type 1900, the 12-inch as the 2500 and the 14-inch as the 6565. All were available as ordinary "engine" lathes or equipped for production work with the fitting of a six-station bed-mounted capstan unit and a screw-operated cut-off/forming slide mounted on the otherwise standard carriage; as the production parts were add-ons it meant that the lathe could be changed quickly from one form to the other.
Mounted on a double-plinth sheet-metal stand, the Powermatic Logan 11-inch had a flame-hardened bed with two prismatic V and two flat ways a total of 615/16" wide. Centre height was 5.5" and the capacity between centres a useful 35" - though no gap was provided nor was one offered as an option..
