It's a direct drive lathe so you may not be able to change the motor if you don't have 3 phase. No morse taper so it has to use another means to mount the spur drive will that style spur drive be available when you need it. For me these 2 things would make me have strong second thoughts Especially if I plan to use it to make money.
