Good to see these photos although they seem to belong in the OP's earlier thread.
I looked at the lathes.co.uk entry where there is rather little discussion of the form of the bed. I had the impression that normal cutting forces would tend to lift the saddle from its rear location.

I had a nose about on YouTube and found a couple of videos. The first gives an overview of the machine and shows some accessories as well as (at 18:30) a wiring diagram, whilst the second shows the fitting of a Unimat-style fretsaw attachment. (I think some of the parts shown in the first video are for this attachment which seems to use a spring return for the blade).
I don't speak Russian so have no idea how good or bad the auto translation of the auto generated Russian subtitles are, or for that matter if the videos contain advertising banned under the new terms and conditions - hopefully the moderators will forgive me.

Very interesting little lathe, and a rather unusual design.
I always find Russian engineering interesting. They seem to look at things very differently from how the west does. Very much function over form.
