Turning Archive 2004

I would like to give turning a try. I have a chance to buy a used Delta lathe, I believe the model # is 46-715 but not 100% sure, he did say it was 3/4 hp ,and variable speed, 500-2000 rpm. I'm not sure if Delta made other models with these specs or not.
It is 5-6 years old and according to the owner its like new. He is asking $400.CAD or $335. USD with some Craftsman turning tools.
I was wondering if this would be a good starter lathe for me as I would like to give bowl turning and pen turning a try.
