Hi, Do you mean an Amadeal 210V lathe?

https://www.amadeal.co.uk/acatalog/AMAT210V.html

Is the problem that the speed varies as you start to cut, or does it just run erratically, even with no load?

If the latter, I would look first for sticking or worn brushes in the motor, and if there wasn't a problem there, it could be a worn control potentiometer (they're not good quality and do fail).

I would give the potentiometer speed controler a clean with some switch cleaner
