In Detail

This new variable speed Jet lathe is an excellent introduction to woodturning. It is a lovely, smooth running lathe and has the power and precision to turn any number of projects, ranging from pens, bottle stoppers, drawers, cupboard knobs, platters, boxes and bowls. Powered by a 375W variable speed DC motor, it drives a strong spindle through 3 belt pulley ratios, giving a good range of speeds for any project. The electronic variable speed control system has sensitive feedback which controls the torque applied to the spindle, keeping the spindle running at the speed set even when a heavy load is applied to it. The speed within each ratio is varied by a simple control knob located on the right hand side of the bed. Speed ratio changing is easy with convenient doors giving full access to the belt and pulleys; a grab handle is used to raise the motor and to re-tension the belt. The bed is precision ground cast iron with much wider than average bedways. This gives great support to the tool rest and tailstock, both fitted with cam locking. The spindle has the common M33 x 3.5mm thread and has a 2MT internal taper. There are also 24 integrated indexing positions making it easy to cut fluting and veining. The tailstock also has a 2MT internal bore, the spindle having a 50mm travel and is self ejecting. The Jet JWL-1015VS is again a perfect choice for the novice woodturner or the advanced turner looking for a small, fully featured machine for the workshop.Supplied with 80mm faceplate, 2MT drive and tailstock centres and knock-out bar.

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

excellent upgrade

I upgraded from my 1014, which was the most basic beginner's lathe and gave me a lot of pleasure but I really envied the variable speed. I took delivery today of my 1015VS and after the initial disappointment of realising that it wouldn't fit my Clubman chucks I ordered an adapter, which will reduce its capacity a little and adds an extra step when I want to change from between centres at max capacity. I felt a bit put out that that hadn't been pointed out to me, because I did mention that I was upgrading from a 1014, but I'm getting used to Axminster staff's well-meaning but not terribly knowledgeable attitude, and I should have looked at the specs more carefully.
After the 1014, the new lathe is a joy. The soft start and the continuous speed control, with its obviously greater muscle, are more than I could have anticipated from the successor to the 1014. So far, obviously, I'm limited to between centres but I've got plenty of blanks to turn and spent several hours today getting the feel of it.
As to value, the price seems to change from day to day. I ordered it on Sunday, it's now Wednesday and a hundred-odd pounds cheaper. I've missed out big time. That does rankle a bit.

i just received today my jet wood lathe jwl 1015 it is small but it's heavy realy shows up its high quality
standart of production it's arrived in good condition no any damages on the package and also the lathe
is entirely in its best condition,,i really like the lathe wich is my first ever wood lathe, i haven't tried it yet to see how it works because
in italy we use only plug with two spins so must change the plug. all in all i just trust that axminster only sells good stuff.
thanks to axminter i'll shortly buy more things from you.
