? - Jet Lathes

Rob in Kansas
>I've been looking for my first lathe and have come across a potential one. I don'e know a model number, but this is what I do know...

1) It's a Jet variable speed
2) Owner hasn't used it for six years. (Health problems)
3) Someone in the ww club said it looked like new, and current owner was asking + or - $250 because it was $500 something when new.

I'm scheduled to go look at it a week from monday. Any comments on what to look for? When did Jet take their manufacturing to China?

Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to give.

Rob
