Got my first lathe!!

Well I was going to wait a year or two, but when I found one on craigslist I just couldn't pass it up. It's an old craftsman with 12 inch swing and its pretty long. I payed 60 bucks for it, so my question is did I do?

I look forward to turning many projects in the future and getting help from some real professionals here on this site.
