In Detail

The Jet 2424 lathe is a short bed version of the 4224B lathe. Offering 24" (600mm) between centres, it is perfect for turners whose interests lie with bowl, vase or goblet turning, or those who have a shortage of space. In all other respects it is identical to the 4224B. Manufactured using heavy gauge cast iron, this helps to minimise vibration and at 365kg this lathe stays rock solid even when turning very large diameter projects. The heavy duty headstock is designed to travel up and down the entire length of the lathe, which allows the turning of very large diameter work at the tailstock end of the lathe. Both headstock and tailstock have positive cam action locking and a safety spindle lock makes it easy to remove faceplates and chucks. Built-in indexing offers 48, 36 and 14 hole positions on the spindle. The 3 stage 10 groove Poly-V belt transmits full power from the motor to the spindle at all speeds while providing extra long belt life and ultra smooth running. A forward and reverse switch is a useful feature, especially when sanding timbers with interlocking grain. The pivoting motor mount allows easy lifting of the motor for fast speed range changes. Three speed ranges are available 40-910, 80-2,000 and 140-3,500rpm the lower range enabling high torque at very low rpm. With electronic speed control via an inverter, you can fine tune the speed of the lathe by the turn of a knob. Comparator centres for copy work are a very useful feature as is the neat storage compartment in the tailstock. The tailstock quill thread has been upgraded from the previous model and it now features an acme style thread which adds extra support when drilling with a tailstock chuck in place. A vacuum chuck facility is a real bonus on this lathe and it operates using a compressor (not supplied) to generate the vacuum via a venturi connection. A 1,600mm bed extension with a leg stand and a 500mm bed extension kit are available as optional extras and the shorter unit can be used in two positions; the lower position gives a massive 48" (1,220mm) capacity (24" centre height above the extension). If you want to buy an industrial quality lathe that will not need upgrading at a later date, then this lathe would make a sound investment.

Supplied with four pronged drive centre, revolving tailstock centre, knockout bar with brass tip, 75mm faceplate, faceplate spanner and a 350mm tool rest.

Optional accessories: 1,600mm extension bed with leg stand, 500mm bed extension kit with rise and fall mechanism, 500mm bed extension only, riser block for tailstock assembly, heavy duty outboard turning stand and a 150mm tool rest.

N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used.
