Not a bad setup. One hint though, take the belt off the motor pulley when the lathe is not in use. Keeping it tensioned pulls the headstock over, and squishes all the oil out of the bearings on that side where the tension is. When you first turn on the lathe, it makes several rotations before the oil is evenly disbursed throughout the bearings, and will lead to premature wear on the bearing surfaces.
