Hi Mike,

This lathe has some great features with the indexing, head and tailstock taper, spindle size, etc. The speed range is good as well. The one thing that would concern me about it is the motor size. While 1/2 hp will probably serve you well for a while, it would probably not be too long before it is not enough. Personally I would not consider any machine with less than 3/4 hp.
