If you had asked questions on buying that Foksy FH1000 before buying would have recommended you not buy it. Craigslist and E-bay are full of old lathes definitely want to stay away from.

Other that drive center that comes with that lathe, faceplates, or optional scroll chuck not much can mount on the headstock, you are stuck with that flimsy tailstock and live center.

Price okay for that lathe and can do some basic turning on it but can be very frustrating for a new turner.
