Not mine, but I have one exactly like it.  This is my third lathe and I've never found one better for general gunsmithing.

Short headstock for through the headstock barrel work
Large spindle hole (I think 1.5") I've never had an issue where it wasn't large enough.
Belt drive so very forgiving and great surface finish as the belts remove lots of motor vibration and 60hZ hum.

Made in Tiawan, not China like the Jet products are now. This puts it as a 1980ish lathe

This is a steal at the price asked. I've seen them going for upwards of $2000 and it looks like this one comes with a ton of stuff

I can't believe it is still for sale. I have folks ask me regularly to sell mine. Very coveted!

Suprised it is still for sale also. Kind of glad its so far away , or I'd probably  want to buy it . Cant say enough good about mine. They are good machines.  How is the oil pump project coming along? Need one also getting tired of oiling by handpump oil cal  . DT
