Not sure what more information anyone can help you with other than price; specs pretty straigh forward. Both the Delta and Jet lathes will serve you well.

I am partial to Jet lathes. Have own two Jet lathes, sold my 10” x 14” mini and use my 16” x 42” lathe. My big Jet has been a pleasure to turn on and handles big and small turnings can turn to 0 when want to do a damage assessment without shutting it off.

Do have an old Delta 12” x 36” modified reeves drive lathe resting on the floor of my shop. Once modified (reeves drive removed) lathe served me well for many years.
