Absolutely Amazing

Justin D Posted April 28, 2014
Breakdown:
Indexing Head - Extremely Solid and unbelievably smooth
Bed - Solid and accurate
Electronic RPM - Great for repeating a perfect cutting speed
Comes with all of the tools you need to make any adjustments
This lathe is a professional quality product, If you're going to spend money on a Lathe and want something that will produce amazingly accurate results with plenty of power, this is definitely it. I added a one way chuck and drill chuck to my setup and can produce just about anything with it. If you have any doubt rest assured you will be 100% happy with this lathe, and I love the way it looks in my shop!

Karen T from Beaverton Store Manager, OR Posted May 1, 2013
Chris from the Beaverton Rockler store here. A couple weeks ago I was grilling our JET rep on why the new 1221VS wood lathe seemed so expensive, a $100 more than the competition. Today we received our first 1221VS for the store. Personally I own the competitors lathe and have been promoting it since it's release a few years ago. I now have to change my tune. The new JET 1221VS lathe blows all other competitors out of the water. I would think it would even be hard to put them in the same class anymore. Quality of machining is superb, fit and finish is excellent, power is glassy smooth, indexing head is very solid, bed is BEEFY! The quality of this machine is what you would normally find in high end stationary lathes. If you're in the market for a new lathe and don't have the room for a floor standing lathe, the JET 1221VS cannot be beat.
