This package comprises the Jet JWL-1221VS Woodturning Lathe and the Jet Bed Extension for JWL-1221VS Lathe.

Jet JWL-1221VS Woodturning Lathe

The Jet JWL1221VS is different to every other lathe in the Jet range. The whole lathe has been designed to make the woodturning experience better by focusing on control.

As with all other Jet lathes, this one is made from cast iron, but the bed width is much wider than is usually found on machines of this size. This gives great support to the tool rest holder, which stays exactly where you clamp it even under the heaviest loads.

The spindle is supported by heavy duty bearings and is quietly driven by a 745W DC motor via a 6 groove belt system. All of the motor controls are very conveniently located together; the speed control, spindle speed digital readout and forward/reverse selector all come naturally to hand.

The tall, rigid tailstock has an ACME barrel lead screw with 64mm of travel; the barrel and headstock spindles have 2MT tapers. Camlocks on both tailstock and toolrest holder allow easy positioning just where you want them. To help keep things tidy there are tool and cable storage fittings on the bed, keeping those essential tools within easy reach.

Although this is a great benchtop lathe, with the optional extension bed and matching lathe and bed stands you can expand this lathe into a floor standing machine with over 1,000mm between centres. The lathe stand has a built-in storage tray plus wide feet for stability, while the bed extension is an exact match to the lathe bed, giving a completely integrated look to the whole machine. This is without doubt a very fine small lathe.

N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used.

Jet Bed Extension for JWL-1221VS Lathe

If you need to turn some longer sections of timber, this useful bed extension will be invaluable to you. Made from substantial cast iron construction to match the lathe, it simply bolts onto your lathe bed increasing the between centres capacity to an impressive 1,075mm. Fixing bolts supplied.
