There is a mandatory 3-hour training course that must be taken before the lathe may be used.
It is a 11×25 Advance TY-1125BH metal “engine” lathe, manufactured in 1985.
11×25 means that a maximum 11“ diameter stock can be turned over the bed (NOT over the cross-slide however!), and a maximum length of 25” stock can be turned between centres (NOT in a 3/4 jaw chuck!).
View the cutting speed nomogram chart (from Richard Sim's training course).
These links are not an endorsement of a specific vendor, they just happen to be who I bought mine from and they are in Delta.
