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 a hollow tailstock allows you to perform long hole boring for lamps and other vessels.
Cam-Lock Mechanism for Tool-Free Adjustments
Designed to be easy to operate, the JWL-1220 includes a cam-lock mechanism that gives you the freedom to adjust the headstock, tailstock, and tool-rest base without tools. There's also a built-in work light to illuminate your workspace as well as your workpiece while turning so you're able to see your results during every step of the work process.
Carry Handles and Cord Wrap for True Portability
Measuring 15.5 x 12 x 32 (WxHxD) and weighing 98.3 pounds, the truly portable JWL-1220 has integrated, large-diameter, retractable carry handles and a cord wrap for convenient storage of the six-foot power cord. It also comes with both six-inch and 10-inch tool-rests for versatility, a storage tray, and a three-inch faceplate.
For added peace of mind, the JWL-1220 is backed 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.
