Before you purchase it bring the tail stock up to the head stock and see if the drive center and the tail center line up. If they don’t walk away from the deal. Take a look at the belt and see if it is worn. The bearings on this lathe have a tendency to wear out after hard use.

-- Those that say it can't be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.
