Customer reviewsRock Solid and great value
My first lathe. I wanted to go with quality but couldn t afford the 1221vs. This is a great alternative. Very affordable and well made. I prefer to have a good tool that does what it s supposed to reliably rather than something cheaper with more bells and whistles. I ve turned a few handles and one bowl within the first four days. The lathe was well packed with form fitted Styrofoam. Moving the belt to another pulley takes 10 seconds or less. Not a big deal. While having variable speed would be nice, I don t know that I would spend an extra 500 for it without knowing I will stick with it. I definitely am glad I purchased this Jet lathe. It was ready to run pretty much out of the box. Just plug it up, drop in the tool rest and go. I will probably get the extension bed at some point. Plenty of power. If I had a complaint it would be that the tool holder on the left can block the lower belt door if tools are in the holder, also a spare belt would be nice. However none of these are a deal breaker in the least. Totally satisfied.
