Has anyone had anything to do with Lantaine Bench Lathes.

Early Taiwan lathes, mostly sold in Canada.
Old enough that condition can vary quite a bit- so one could be totally worn out, another pretty decent.
Never real high quality, but better than the really cheap stuff from the mainland.

Hi

Quite a few sold in australia and NZ under a variety of names. They are quite obvious that they are all Lantaines as well.

No problems with mine. 1hp motor, imperial lead screw. power feed and surfacing. There were a 12x36 and a 12x24 and had hardened beds.
See here for the manual:
