It depends on what you want to make. I have an even smaller "Mr Meister"-branded MJ-189A (without milling attachment) and have turned all the essential parts of the attached Hit-'n-miss engine.
I did have a problem with drive-belts breaking and the nearest source of replacements was in UK but as I live in Thailand that was hardly practical. When I needed a new drive-belt for my wood-planer, I realised that similar belts might fit the lathe. They do. They are a multi-V, urethane, reinforced with some sort of cord, about 15mm wide, and one belt sliced up the middle gives me two lathe belts - and this has also given me more usable power: the old, round belts would stretch and slip under heavy load.
