Looks good and the price seems reasonable. Only $600 for a quality spindle lathe. 16" swing. Only potential problem is the motor. 1 hp and I bet i ts 3 phase. Uses pulleys for speed. Plate says 50 hz. So European motor of course. Europe uses 3 phase. $600 plus a new single phase motor and yo u end up with pulley variable speed. Maybe not a bargain for a home woodtu rner in the USA.

yes it is an oddball for sure but it is an interesting lathe
maybe outfit it with a vfd and that would be enough
