Jet JWL-1642 Woodturning Lathe
Built to a high standard and capable of taking a 400mm (16”) diameter bowl and a bed long enough to turn a 1,060mm (42”) long spindle. All the major castings are thick section cast iron which gives a very solid feel to the lathe and should guarantee vibration-free running.
Power is provided by a 1,100W output motor driving the spindle through a choice of two pairs of pulleys and controlled by a variable speed controller situated at the rear of the headstock. The low speed range gives plenty of torque for the big turning jobs whilst the high speed range gives the speed required for smaller components. The front panel of the headstock, as well as housing the speed control knob, has a rpm indicator, a safety on/off knob, a reversing switch and access panel for changing the belt position. Other features are the swiveling, lockable chuck guard, tool basket under the bed, provision for mounting a shelf on the stand, indexing facility and spring loaded shaft lock.
