I looked at that lathe when I was in the market for one. The issue with that one is 600RPM for unstable stock is way too fast. I got pointed to the Delta 46-460 in a similar price point. With three belt positions combined with variable speed, the Delta will run from 250 RPMs-4000Rpms. I have had that lathe for a little over a year now, and I am very happy with it. It is smaller, but with variable speed, the ability to run backwards (for sanding) and a few other features made me feel like the Delta was a better lathe for the money.
