Powerful 1/2 HP, Six-Speed Motor for Control and Flexibility
Able to support stock up to 10 inches in diameter and 14 inches in length, the JML-1014I owes its robust performance to a powerful 1/2 HP motor that offers six speeds and a motor tilting adjustment handle. This motor also gives you the flexibility to tackle a range of projects and materials without bogging down your lathe.

Cast-Iron Bed for Stability; Spindle Lock for Fast Fluting and Veining
A heavy-duty cast-iron lathe bed adds stability while dramatically limiting vibrations during operation so you enjoy precise results. Additionally, the spindle features a lock that makes it easier to remove faceplates, chucks, and other accessories with one hand. It also has indexing capabilities for fast and efficient fluting and veining operations.

Live Center and Hollow Tailstock for Efficient Boring
To help complete projects quickly and easily, and to tackle a range of jobs, the live center has a removable pin for boring through stock, while the hollow tailstock allows you to perform long hole boring for lamps and other vessels.

Self-Ejecting Tailstock and Cam-Lock Mechanism for Safe, Easy Operation
Designed to be extremely user friendly, the JML-1014I's tailstock is also self-ejecting for safe and easy removal of tooling. Additionally, a cam-lock mechanism allows tool-free adjustments of the headstock, tailstock, and tool-rest base.

And to help protect both your workspace and your materials, the JML-1014I's benchtop features four non-skid rubber feet to keep the machine stable during use.

This mini lathe measures 10.25 x 26 x14.1 inches (WxHxL), weighs 72 pounds, and is covered by a five-year warranty.

About JET: A History of Sharing New, Feature-Rich Products
Opened in 1958 after the founder of the company, Leslie P. Sussman, took the first Boeing Jet Airplane trip from Seattle, Washington to Japan, JET began as a small dealer that sold air hoists and trolleys out of a single hardware store in Seattle. Over the years, JET has carried everything from snowmobiles, transmitter radios, and forklifts to nylon stockings, but by the early 1970s, metalworking had become the base of their business line. And by the 1980s, JET had expanded into the realm of woodworking. Today, you'll find that JET offers a wide range of popular woodworking tools that are backed with best-in-class features and excellent service.

Mini lathe, one six-inch tool-rest, one faceplate, one drift rod, one live center, one spur center, one pair of safety goggles, one owner's manual, one warranty card, one three-millimeter hex wrench, and one five-millimeter hex wrench.

Locally (Dallas), I had a chance to look at the actual Rikon, Delta, and Jet mini size lathes.

Easy to adjust the speeds with the belt (and I'm new at turning).

For years I had been using a large, old, Delta lathe at work but since my retirement (ya, right) I no longer have that access. I have had to add power tools to my crib to accomplish the inventions and ideas that come into my head. I thought the Jet Mini lathe might be a bit too small but I was wrong. This lathe may not be large in size but it can do some pretty big work if and when you want it to. I do bowl turnings mostly and some spindle stuff and in both cases it has performed equal to if not better than the big Delta I used in the past. With the addition of the bed extension, a new PSI chuck, and slight modification to the setup I have turned up to 60 inch spindles and turned bowls out of soap stone with ease. Highly recommended!!!

The Jet Mini is my third wood lathe, the previous lathes being an older unknown brand and most recently the Craftsman 12 X 36 "pipe" style lathe. A recent move required me to downsize my shop so I looked for a lathe that was not a toy, but clearly have a smaller footprint. Furthermore, since my previous lathes did not have variable speed I was not especially looking for variable speed on the new lathe.

Doing research on Rikon, Delta, Mastercraft, Grizzly, Harbor Freight and a couple of others, it became clear the three to consider would be the Jet, Delta, and Rikon.

Locally (Dallas), I had a chance to look at the actual Rikon, Delta, and Jet mini size lathes. I can confidently say that either of these brands will likely provide satisfactory service for anyone. Now it became time for me to make a choice.

The Rikon was a little less expensive, but not by much. The Delta and Jet were right in line with each other. The deciding factor then became the ease of changing the belt for different spindle speeds. For this qualifier, the Jet clearly won. On the Jet, you can change speeds, with the belt, in less than 20 seconds.

I use the lathe mainly for turning small bowls, vases and making wooden pens. For these projects, the lathe performs flawlessly. Indeed, I have not found anything the lathe will back away from, including turning an eight-inch diameter bowl. Albeit this is the largest I've tried turning and the Jet Mini handled it well.

So, what about the choice I made not to get the VS (variable speed) model? So far no regrets. However to be completely fair, there have been a couple of times, when finishing wood pens, that it may have been helpful.

I recently purchased the JML-1014i. I rely heavily on the feedback system for my purchases (and will continue to do so) but I think it's worth noting that there seems to be a systematic problem with the motor for these lathes with regard to heat production/heat dissipation -- I was surprised this fact is absent from previous reviews, so I'm adding this review in the hopes that future buyers are aware of the issue prior to purchase.

After approximately 20 minutes of use (even when completely unloaded) the motor casing becomes too hot to touch. I initially thought that I had a defective motor, but after finding many similar complaints in various forums on the internet, I called Jet and the tech confirmed that these motors run very hot. The only advice he gave me was, if failure occurs in the next 5 years, they will replace it via the warranty.

Aside from the premature failure that is bound to come as a result of the heat, it is physically uncomfortable to work in front of the lathe. My shop temperature is 68-70 F and after an hour in front of the lathe, I am sweating. I suppose in the winter I may appreciate the added "benefit" of having a space heater built into the lathe, but for now it's just annoying.

As points of reference: I also have a Jet jwl-1642evs, which I love (and the motor barely gets warm after a couple hours of use) and a Carbatec mini-lathe that likewise doesn't even get warm after a couple hours of use. I have the machine connected to a 20A outlet, have the tensioning belt set correctly and, as the lathe is brand new, there is no debris affecting air flow to the motor (i.e., it's being operated under proper conditions).

Just received my jet Mini lathe via Ups. Did reserach on the older version of the lathe and the excellent reviews including mine..Yes I said including mine. I owned a jet aout 2 years ago and sold it when purchasing a old shopsmith. Wanted something bigger more powerful.

I got into turning when introduced to wood pens, bottle stoppers, back scraters. Made a guy in the mid west happy when he bought my jet mini.

The shopsmith arrived, and yes its a great machine. Now the wife has to turn the basement light on and off to get my attention. More maintenance is required. Now the quality of my work..??No appreciable change!!

So I sold it off and bought the Jet Mini..I did test out the new vs...and its a great machine, but I enjoy simple..the less electronics the better. Its true that in less than 5 minutes you can change belts with no problem.

I put that $100 difference to good use...bought the jet reviewed
its rock solid and worth every dime.. By the way its now $137..but amazon has specials was $107 last week, grabbed it fast..

Turned a few pen blanks, took a few minutes to get used to the difference
between the jet and my old SS..By the end result..Just as nice work, just as fast.and now no lights go off in the basement to get my attention.

Fast, good finishing, well built. I would highly recommend.
