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.
