With a little over Â£100 off the normal price, now until the end of June is a good time to buy this bench top lathe.
The Jet JWL 1220VS offers a larger capacity and more motor power than is normally found on most small bench top lathes. The heavy duty, cast iron bed of this lathe has a finely ground top surface, ensuring stability and minimal vibration during operation. The thick walled, cast iron headstock and tailstock provide rigidity and strength giving years of trouble-free turning pleasure. The tailstock is hollow (9mm bore) allowing long-hole boring to take place using a standard long-hole boring auger. Quick release levers enable easy and accurate positioning of tool rest and tailstock. The lathe is powered by a 560W variable speed DC motor suitable for continuous operation. The spindle speed ranges from 200 to 4,300rpm, using the variable speed control and belt ratios. Solid rubber feet help to eliminate movement while in operation. The tailstock barrel has 50mm of movement and a live centre is included. The spindle is indexed every 15° and has a locking pin mechanism at the rear of the headstock.
The lathe is supplied with a work light, 150mm & 250mm tool rests, drive centre, live centre and 75mm faceplate. A great choice if you are looking for a portable, quality lathe.
Price: Â£449 (inc VAT) - price valid from 25th March until 30th June 2013
