Harvey TURBO T-40 Woodworking Lathe

Tools come from thoughts, and serve just as the extension of your hands. An ideal tool should be performing just as good as your hands, with instant response to your minds; and it has to be amusing, enlightening and beautiful.

Harvey team never stopped pursuing excellence of tools to achieve user’s extreme working experience. After development of Harvey Turbo T-50/60 heavy duty woodworking lathes, Harvey team spent over two years trying to develop a smaller sized ideal lathe which can fit operations of serious hobbyists and personal job shops. Now we are glad to announce that the idea come true: Turbo T-40 Lathe was just born to the earth.

In order to overcome long existing issues of insufficient toque and “speed lost” on most of the small lathes in the market, for the first time in the industry, Harvey introduced the Industrial Servo Motor (ISM) system and integrated into T-40 spindle drive.

With marvellous 300% overload capacity, ISM can easily overcome frequent overloading during turning operation, and the extraordinary speed rigidity of ISM can maintain turning speed with no change. What more, with delicate software tuning, ISM drive can intelligently track the toque needed and simultaneously provides proper power to spindle. Therefore the turner will always feel smoothness of turning without any hassle and interruptions. This revolutionary technology simply brings Turbo T-40 lathe into a completely new level of turning experience.

Turbo T-40 lathe is constructed with premium grade cast iron and machined to the best possible accuracy. The guide ways are precision ground for smoothness of operation. The whole body of T-40 lathe is pained by shiny black varnish. All fit & finish are delicately engineered and crafted for excellence of human experience without compromise.

T-40 has features 360mm (14”) max swing, and 625mm (24”) centre distance. The spindle head can rotate up to 90° for outbound turning.  Also, 80KG (178 lb) weight makes T-40 the heaviest animal in its league. Harvey team sincerely hopes the new Turbo T-40 with make a greatly enjoyable “toy” for turners.
