Hi, Do you mean an Amadeal 210V lathe?
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
