Why not look at a used machine with a commercial control? Even a Haas. About the same size as that machines and not a converter manual lathe design. I am betting a used Haas would be about the same price as that thing new. I think a Haas TL-1 went around 20k near new around here.
I have seen older fully enclosed slant beds going way cheaper at auction.

I just bought a Haas TL1 with less than 40 hours on it in a divorce sale for $9,000.00
