power king lathe

>I am looking at a power king lathe no.7122 12". The lathe looks in
real good shape. I thought it had babbit bearings but i looked it up
on the internet and the manufacture(atlas) showed it to have ball
bearings.I don't know what horse power it is but i suspect it is
1/2hp. It has 4 speeds 635,1230,2430,4580. If i consider buying this lathe which will be my first idon't have any idea what it is worth.
I guess it was made in the late 50's. Anyone have any info on this lathe i would be happy to have it.

Thanks, Byron
