Yes ! . That is a decent lathe !! . I believe that is a Sieg lathe.

I have been using a very similar Sieg lathe for pen making for 10+ years ... 2000 pens later, still working well.

Mine is a 7 x 14 , whereas the one you show is spec'd as 8 x 14. . Not sure if there is a real difference or not.

It's a pity there is not more info on yours ... for example, what head stock chuck does it come with ?
