    It's a nice looking lathe, but I'd think for $750 you could get a used lathe with bigger capacity, a hand wheel, and easier speed changes, possibly even variable speed. Heck, the new Jet 1220VS is less than that, even with a bed extension. (No cool cast iron legs, though.)

    As an aside, back in the day, you could buy the headstock for the Walker-Turner 952 (similar lathe, it looks like) for $20. Here's the manual and price list:

    thought the speed range was interesting. and knowing the old iron afficanados lurk here, someone might want to see it.

    my delta will do for me for awhile...
