Good friend of mine is selling me a lathe that was basically given to him by a mutual friend. The original owner (mutual friend) bought it new and used it very little in his home shop. It comes with most everything including 2 chucks, face plate, live center, original stand, and brand new Aloris tool post setup that has never been used. It's a 3 phase setup but he is throwing in a phase converter. Not sure what type or brand name it is. Comes with all the original manuals and paper work and some tooling. It looks to be in fairly good condition just needing a good clean up. I am not sure what year model it is. I do know it's made in China as it's stamped on the front. From what I can look up on line it's a 14X40 with 1.5" spindle bore and I believe the motor is 3HP. Does anyone know anything good or bad about this model? I know it's been a while since I posted. Thanks in advance.

Thanks....it's just for home use. Not turning huge stuff. I am very green but eager to learn more.

Found out the phase converter is a Temco XR5 which looks ok. Can anyone advise?
