Couple of things Mike as a new lathe owner myself. I found that everything under the Delta 46-460 is basically the same lathe. This Rikon has better capacity, but it’s underpowered and doesn’t reverse.

Listen man, take my word for it; you want variable speed control and reversing motor. If you don’t buy it now, in two months you’ll have that Rikon on the market and you’ll be getting the delta.

Also figure in about 100$ for a chuck and about 85$ for chisels.
