Joe Hartson can tell you a lot about that machine. I have a similar one that is an early 14X40...supposed to be! It is the same as a 13X40 but it has the swing etc of the 14. Same weight etc. It is a decent, roughly made machine that has required work. If I had it to do over I would have bought a 14X40 that weighs in the 2000 pound range. That being said...this thing turns circles around my ol' Southbend.
I'm starting to like it just fine though. It gets better with every small improvement.
Lots of power to run carbide and a decent size splindle bore.
I like the D-nose and carriage switch.
I have tools I don't even know I own...
