Is this a type 1 or a type 2 model?

According to Delta's website, there are two different versions of the 46-460 lathe- a Type 1 and a Type 2. Can Home Depot confirm which one is being sold here online? Thanks.

12-1/2 in. Midi-Lathe Variable Speed Wood Lathe is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went from a 3/4 hp to this guy and I... Went from a 3/4 hp to this guy and I would never believe a 1/4 horse would make such a difference. No assembly plug and go every one is getting ready for hurricane season so I turned over 100 green bowls in a week and no issues no over heating like my other guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Lathe! This lathe is a pleasure to use. It’s powerful but surprisingly quiet. It has variable speed and 3 belt positions for each speed range. The tail stock and tool rest assembly glide easily along the lathe bed, and they’re easy to lock and unlock with a quarter turn of the locking levers. They're also easy to remove from the lathe bed if they're in the way during finish sanding. The reverse feature is handy for finish sanding; it's easier on the fingers, and the sawdust goes to the back instead of towards the operator. The reverse feature is good only when using the faceplate, which can be "locked" onto the spindle so it won't unscrew. Using a chuck in reverse would likely be a problem. The two tool rests are a little wimpy; they’re lightweight and easily marred, and my tools do not glide along them. I may have to upgrade them, but the posts are an odd size. The included lathe stand was the deciding factor for this purchase from Home Depot. It’s wonderfully sturdy and stable, and it has leveling feet. The tool holder on the stand is really only good for storing the tool rests; my lathe tools just fall through. I was hesitant to go with a Delta due to the service problems and difficulty getting repair parts, so I hope this lathe continues to work flawlessly. I’ve owned several lathes, and this one is by far the best and most versatile. I’m very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lathe I Have Used Yet It has a very powerful motor so you rarely have stalls while turning. Also a nice feature is the reverse, which a lot of people say they don't use but I have used it on everyone of my projects so far and it makes the finish so much better! I was skeptical at first about buying this lathe because of what I had heard about Delta's C.S., I haven't had to deal with them yet and hopefully don't have to. So far though I am VERY happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend this lathe.

I own two delta 46/460 lathes and I would advise anyone buying this lathe to also purchase the bed extension so as not to have to remove tail stock when sanding. I poked my elbow a few times before learning to buy an extension. For the price this is a great tool for a beginner or an advanced turner. As with a lesser priced lathe or an expensive lathe the key to good wood turning is always have your tools sharp as you can do damage to any lathe with dull gouges. I would rate the delta 46/460 at five stars. I hope this has been helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Parts were missing. I studied up on this lathe and liked the features that it came with. I had the packages shipped to the store and they all arrived without damage. They had not been opened. I assembled the stand and the extension first but unfortunately when I started to place the lathe on the stand I found that the tool holder was missing four parts which allow you to lock it in place on the lathe bed. I called Delta's customer service the next day. The first call, they told me the information they needed and the second call I waited 30 minutes on hold but they took my information and said they would ship the parts. I would say the other reviews are correct. My motor is wired backwards as well but the tool appears to be as nice as I hoped. If the correct parts actually arrive in a timely manner I would change my review to a 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Tool Defered Like many woodworkers, despite loving turning in shop class 45 years ago, I felt owning a lathe was an extravagance that would not be used often enough to justify the expense and shop space. I had managed to make most of the spindles I had to have on the drill press or with a router. However, now having worked on my first project, a set of belaying pins, I recall how enjoyable turning is. After doing the research and deciding on the Delta, Home Depot had the best price and quick delivery. The machine was ready to go right out of the box. I built a heavy, dedicated stand for it and bought a starter set of tools. I was most impressed by how quiet and smooth the machine runs. I am now looking for projects and particularly interested in trying to make some bowls from the odd grains in my firewood stumps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta midi lathe Excellent. Easy forward/reverse converniently placed next to on/off switch. Comes with faceplate, live center #2 MT, headstock center with rod remover, removeable tailstock, Good range of speeds for each belt position. Haven't changed belt positions yet though. Excellent materials: good weight, doesn't vibrate, chrome wheels on head and tailstocks. Can't beat it for the price. Can't imagine why anyone would buy the Jet for so much more money. Works beautifully. I'm very happy with it. Now if I can only learn how to turn....
