Have fun with your new lathe. I certainly wouldn't mind owning even not perfect one. Just cannot justify the price asked - I rather spend more then 2x as much and get same size used CNC.

Its not a big lathe - both weight wise and size wise. People move that size lathe into their basements all the time. If you have engine hoist moving it into your garage will not take more then say 2h - including untying it and tying it to the hoist and moving it into place. Maybe an hour more if you have just a crawbar and are by yourself.

Make sure you spend the time to level the lathe - you don't want it twisted. It has a short heavy bed but still nice to have it even - at least for lubrication purposes.

I found it way easier to use the car lift vs a engine hoist.....
