No need to pay for the manual… you can get it from Delta here:
Lathe Model 46-204 T1

I don’t have any experience with that particular lathe, but similar ones. Delta made some fine lathes, and that one should serve you well for years to come. It has MT2 tapers and a 1”x8tpi spindle, so you have pretty much unlimited access to accessories. Depending on condition, you may want to open up the headstock and replace the bearings just to be on the safe side. YMMV.

Thank you very much Brad, I really appreciate the link. I’m excited to get started turning some pens :)
