The JET 1221VS is different from anything we've made before. In truth, it’s different from anything that anybody has ever made before. The design is better. The features are better. The entire turning experience is better. And it all focuses on one concept… Control.

The digital variable speed control is amazing and makes working with the lathe incredibly easy. There is no guess work on the speed as the read out tells you exactly what it is.
I have never seen a lathe with such a wide speed range.
It is a 115 volt motor but works just fine with 110 volt and is a standard plug type.
I turn stone, some starting at 100 pounds and unbalanced and starting rpm at 60 rpm I can now turn safely
even turning logs.
The price is at 799.00 but would expect to pay way more!!!
July the 1st the price will go up so if you can't decide, push the buy button because it is so worth it even after the price hike your going to get a great deal!
I will say that you do need a lot of accessories to go along with the lathe. Yes this machine will turn the wood- but you need to tools to chisel the wood and different attachments for different projects. I guess I did not realize this. We ended up spending hundreds of dollars more on accessories- but you're going to do that no matter which one you buy.
For the money this one rocks!
Now that I have a working JET 1221VS, I'm very happy with how quiet it is, how sturdy it is, and how easy it is to change the belts. Hopefully none of the issues I experienced out of the box with the first two lathes that arrived start cropping up on my newest one, but so far so good!
The 1st one I received was in a badly mangled box with missing parts. The Styrofoam was completely crushed and the box was torn and gouged - I exchanged it right away without attempting to try it out. The 2nd one I received also had shipping damage (broken power switch) and a very noisy rear head-stock bearing. This lathe is heavy and a pain to box it back up but I decided it was worth giving it another try. So crossed my toes and exchanged it again. The Amazon return process was seamless and I received the replacement lathe before the scheduled pick-up of the exchanged one (both times).
As to the lathe:
It runs very quiet and smooth. The second one I had was pretty noisy in reverse but #3 is quiet in both directions.
I'm pretty sure the noise on #2 was from the motor brushes and can imagine this would be common for reversible lathes until the brushes seat in.
The variable speed is nice but the control is somewhat jumpy especially when going from lowest speed up a notch. In the lowest range, mine jumps from about 50 rpm to 120 rpm with a slight turn of the dial. Not a big deal for me since I'm not turning metal. So far, I've left it in the middle speed range in actual use and am usually in the 500 to 1100 rpm range.
I bought the bed extension so I can do table legs or other longer projects. I went this way instead of going for the 14 inch because I can move the lathe around in parts if needed. If I remove the tail-stock and the tool rest, I can (just barely if I'm rested and had my Wheaties that day) haul the machine to another bench or take it outside. I have a very small shop and sometimes need the space.
The first machine I received was never tested so I can only say that one of the 3 had quality control issues (the bearing). My only other concern is that I think there should be better packaging for such a heavy item.
If you get one in good shape, I think you'll be very happy with it.
