Not familiar with the company, but would you please rescale your pictures before posting them. Instead of 3006 x 5344 maybe shoot for
something around 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768.

Taiwan went through a period in the 70s where they made a lot of machines for export. They still do, but China and India have taken over that niche.

The names of the companies were often humorous. Many were literal translations of the chinese name to english. My mill (also from Taiwan in 1979) is labeled "Standard Machinery Mfg". In the past I've seen "Happy Flower" and "Sun Glow" brands too. :)

Don't expect to find any online mention of the company. I found a California company formed in 1982 by that exact name, but the corporate license shows as suspended.


Don't be lulled into thinking that is just like some popular model that "it looks like". Very common practice is to copy an existing design, and some do them very faithfully while others make rough approximations.

That makes sense
Can't complain tho picked this machine for 350 and after some new spindle bearings Dro and a good cleaning this machine runs greats I just learned real quick with these machines leave a tourque wrench around to tighten up the bolts on the head so it doesn't move on ya
