Bernie,
I never had a BOLEY collet but I do have a few BOLEY lathes. Mine take the standard Starrett collets and work fine with them. The nice thing about the Sincere lathe is it comes standard with a cross slide and lever operated collet holding tailstock. The graver rest is purchased as an accessory. I do not know if there would be any advantage over the machine you already have if you are only going to use a graver. When I bought mine a few years ago the drawtubes would not fit the standard WW collet threads and I had to run a tap through them to get them to work. I believe now you can purchase the Sincere lathes with either the metric drawtubes or the American standard. In any case it was not a major problem.
