Need a Little Help

I have found a picture of a Craftsman lathe that I think I want.The only trouble is,I have called Sears and they can't seem to find this machine that I am talking about.This is what I have;
Variable Speed 400-2000
33" spindle turning
15" Inboad
20" outboard
2 H.P.

Does anyone have this machine or can give me a model number;Thanks Mack

There have been really mixed reviews of this machine. Of the 2 that I have seen and worked on I would run away from it. These machines were dogs. They break often and parts are hard to get and take way to long to get them.
However I've talked to some owners that like them. I don't know if they are still selling this machine or not. If the price was really low then it would probably be worth it. If not I would look around and buy a quality lathe that you will enjoy using.
