found a 45-460 rockwell lathe that a guy inherited and just wants to get rid for 200. if so what are some of the things to look for when purchasing a used lathe, thanks for the input.

What accessories come with it (rests, turning tools, centers, etc.)
Motor should run
Centers should line up
Does it come with a stand
condition of bearings

off the top of my head.
