Considering you don't have anything in it you should not be at all disappointed. Sure it will be limited as to what you can do but it will be far from useless and you can learn the basics plus you do have a valuable antique, not worth a large sum but not at all worthless either. This thing can truly be a learning experience and as long as you don't invest a lot of money in parts/tooling that would be specific to that model what you do spend will transfer over to that newer lathe that I am confident you are going to be looking for soon!

Whatever you decide don't trash that old machine as there definitly are people out there that would love to have it, just as we here like to work with old cars there is a fairly large group that is dedicated to old shop machinery.
