JET continues to improve and expand their woodworking catalogue. Today they officially released the JET JWL-1440VS and JWL-1440VSK 1 HP variable speed woodworking lathes. These new products add new and exciting features to an already extensive line of JET bench top and floor model woodworking lathes.
With these new machines, you are going to see a new and improve style of sliding headstock that can also pivot 360 degrees with seven positive-locking positions at: 0, 30, 60, 90, 120, 180 and 270. This will provide you with a full range of outboard turning capabilities. If you decide to go with the floor model (719400K), an extension bed can be mounted in three separate positions for larger outboard turnings and increase capacity between centers (60”).
Variable speed range has increased too in comparison to the JET JWL-1442VSK. Instead of the 450 – 3000 you are used to seeing; you now get that little extra with a 400 – 3000 speed range. Combine this with JET’s 1HP single phase TEFC motor and you are well on your way to all the control you need.
Ever have issues with slippage? The positive locking tool rest features a redesigned clamping system that creates point of contact control.
If you are looking for a full-featured lathe for your shop, look no further than the new JWL-1440VS and JWL-1440VSK from JET. With a robust list of features mentioned and so much more left, you can rest assured that you will have everything you need to have: full control, power, precision and flexibility.
