My Jet Mini-late arrived well-packed and in good condition, the only loss was one of the hard rubber foot pads which was broken off and rattling around in the packaging.
Set-up was a snap and I started turning immediately
This lathe is a little gem, powerful, solid as Gibralter, and vibration-free. I'm very impressed with the quality of the milling as well as the casting. It's also a very attractive tool to have in the shop. Two days after first use I ordered the bed extension that Jet makes for this lathe, which is equally well-designed, and went together easily and accurately. A good set of gouges (from Craftsman) and one of Rockler's really cool magnetic work lamps, and I was makin' the chips fly!
I'd recommend this lathe to woodworkers and artist woodturners of any level of experience. Jet also has a great series of videos on Youtube featuring this lathe that you can watch while you're waiting for the delivery truck to come.
I'm new to Rockler, but if this transaction is typical, they can count on me coming back. I look forward to many years service from this outstanding little machine.

I had always been a bit leery of a product where I had to move the belt to different pulleys to adjust the speed, but I find that it is no problem at all. The lathe works great and I have already turned out several new pens.
I was very impressed with how quickly my new lathe arrived, and although the two are not related, how easy it was to get up and running as well.
Thanks Rockler for a great purchasing experience.

I have been doing wood work for many years. I will retire in 5 years and I know I need to buy all the toys I want before retirement. Read all I could about wood lathes and reviews. Made up my mind that I would try this mini lathe. I didn't want to order online so I drove to Mesquite,Tx to take a look at one. The store is 100 miles from me. When I walked in the store I was amazed at all the things that Rockler stocks. There is nothing like it anywhere close to me. Anyway after getting excellent advice from the employees that know what they are talking about and not a bunch of pimple faced kids I was highly impressed! Before I left the store I had spent over 700 dollars and felt great about the products I bought. Back to the lathe, I bought 2 of the DVD's that Rockler had by the Australian guy, can't recall his name. They were both very good, just wished as a newbie to turning wood he spoke more about speeds and such. I did learn alot from these DVD's. The lathe itself is vibration free and works like a champ. I just wished I had found Rockler many years ago and would love for them to bring a store to my area. I would spend a lot more money if they did. If you have never visited one of their stores you have too! Again I was very impressed by the lathe and the qualityy of the employees knowledge at Rockler.

This is a great lathe in a small affordable package. I always wanted to learn how to turn wood and this has proved to be the perfect purchase. Down the road I will invest into a larger lathe and will not hesitate to buy another Jet one.

Top quality mini lathe. The stand is very stable and is a simple set up. The bed extention lines up quite nicely, increasing the usefulness of the lathe.

This lathe was my Christmas present, opened it after I lugged it in the door. I've been using an Shopsmith as a lathe for 4 years now. This little mini is great! Easy to setup. Smooth and quiet. No vibration at all, not even turning out bowls. I Love it.
