Just a friendly update,my Jet mini-lathe or should I say full sized lathe after close to four (4)years is still the absolute best lathe I have ever owned,to this day it runs everyday and I have turned out almost one thousand projects with it! It has never failed to operate and the centers remain dead center true.Exactly as I received it from the Great folks at Rockler Pro.Com I often wonder if the folks at JET truly knew what a great little full sized lathe they put on the market. I have not had any mechanical type problems with this lathe,I wish I could say this about some of my other woodworking machines.But after almost 45 years of woodworking some have to break I guess.

This is by far the best Mini Lathe on the market, I am glad I spent the extra money for the Variable Speed Model, don't know how I would have made pen with CA finish, on a scale of 1-10 this one is a 10.

It is the best gift I ever bought for my husband. He has a full size lathe but prefers to use his Jet VSI and stand. He can't say enough GREAT things about it. I like how quiet it is. He has told everyone that wants a mini to get this model even if they have to wait longer to have enough $. Hopefully I will be able to get the bed extension and extension stand. What
an excellent machine and a happy husband.

I have a full size lathe in the shop along with this one. Most if not all my work is now done with the Jet. It's quiet, no vibration and a pleasure to run. From pens to Calls, to spindle work and bowls. I have yet to find something I am not able to turn with it. If I use the full size lathe, it's to bring the work down to size. Then it gets moved to my Jet.
A hard worker, worth every penny and a welcome to any shop. I would give a thumbs up to anyone wanting to buy one. Good work Jet.

I use to think Shopsmith was the best lathe in the world until I met up with the Jet 1014VSI mini lathe, which now has become a full sized lathe. Simply put, there is not a better lathe in this class anywhere
else. The lathe is a rock solid machine, it's centers are dead on center,no vibrations. It is hard to belive one can do so much with a lathe designated as a mini lathe.
Let us not forget to make your purchase from Rockler, great folks that stand behind their sales 100% and also offer the best prices on this wonderful lathe.

This was the first lathe I have used since high school shop class. Since I have had this in my shop I have not turned on another tool in weeks. It is very addicting turning all kinds of things (pens, bowls etc.) This thing is great and exceeds all expectations! I am not looking into the bed extension to turn table and chair legs. Stop looking and start turning!
