I have an older Craftsman lathe, spent $90 when it was new! Fan on the motor (plastic) is trash. I’m running with the cover off the motor housing to keep things cool. Bed is a “T” shape, two pieces get me to 37” long. Just a drive spur, and a “Dead ” center. Lots of table legs over the years. Lately, though, a different sort of thing is going on….

I use mainly the four chisel set that came with the lathe. I also have a few others from other sources. In the process of moving the shop to a smaller location. Make a stand for this lathe, hang a “Shop-lite” over it, and back in “business”.

New Lathe??? Maybe a H-F one…..
