I have one of these. It was given to me, mainly because it was missing the drive center. It also didn’t have the cover on the belt, so I had a suspicion that it was a Craftsman, but don’t know what model. I don’t do much turning and it works ok for turn a spindle now and then or some knobs. I don’t think I would pay much over $50-75 for this one, since it’s just a basic, entry level type lathe.
