BobC covered the basic lathe thoroughly so I won't show my ignorance there. You need to look at all the tooling that comes with the lathe. 3 and 4 jaw chucks, tool post, tool holders, steady rest, live center(s), tools, attachments etc. You might get a great deal on a basic machine, but if you have to buy all the items to make the machine productive, the good deal can turn sour very quick.
