If you don't think you have the skills to assess the lathe, get in touch with your local model engineering society and ask for help. Almost certainly someone will help you check it over. They can be wrecks, but also some may be perfectly adequate for accurate work. Some may even be in very good fettle. It is always buyef beware.
