Entry level lathe - help??

Ron Berlier, Sacramento, CA
>Hello All!
I would like the "Expertís" opinions as to whether the Delta Midi-Lathe is worth the money as an entry level tool. Initially I was thinking about a jig with my drill press, but I have been rethinking that since ebony is one of the woods I want to use. I want to turn drawer pulls, fan pulls, maybe a pepper shaker or two and some spindles. Current price at Woodworker Supply is about $240.

Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.
Ron
