That looks just like the one that I have except that I don't have the collet closer that you do. Nice lathe!

The rubber bushings in the head need to be replaced, I changed to a smooth belt and there is very little vibration, is there any reason to not consider nylon or delrin to replace the rubber?

Plastic sounds like a real good idea.

If you're worried about it being too stiff, I don't think you'll have a problem.
Others may have better feedback on the pros/cons, but the bushings for my drive box are solid steel, and I haven't noticed any problems.
