This is the exact same as the wood lathe I have, although mine has had a bit more work done on it than that one, heh.

They aren't a bad lathe, they are reasonably solid, pretty accurate and serve the purpose well. Mine has an issue where the motor overheats after 15 minutes of use though, and a flange from the lowest speed on the belt drive has broken off - before my time with it, however.
