Grizzly machine makes some decent tooling..It is import but works fine. Check on pricing of new equipment to get some ideas of what those go for. Sometimes a big lathe is cheaper to buy as the smaller "hobby size" are in great demand when looking at used.
I would like to have one big enough to turn a crank in myself. Always can do smaller things..
I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
