On small lathes vibration can be an issue, so ballast (accessory) is a good investment that does not come with the lathe. The craftsmanship of the lathe mfr has a lot to do with vibration, so you may need to tune it up a bit also. Secure it to a massive top and in a fit of overkill add some ballast (sand bags, cement blocks etc) to the base.
Yep, you’re over the cliff and your wallet is your only parachute! You should get a LOT of good advice, so I was trying to think of something most might not.
