Default Vermont Router Lathe

Hi - I'm new to this forum. I purchased a Vermont Router Lathe about 20 years ago and have never unpacked it. Now that I have retired I thought I might have a go (so to speak)! Is there anyone familiar with the equipment that can give advice? I have two routers a Makita and a GMC. I have the instructions for the Vermont and the quick glance today indicates that it might be easy - but any hints, advice or critique would be helpful. Robert
