Customer Questions & Answers

Is this lathe 110 volt or 220 volt?

Can this lathe be mounted on a homemade bench

Asked by: butch
It weighs in at around 125 pounds. The bench should be sturdy. My work station is mounted to my garage wall and bolted down.

does this include the stand for the lathe?

Asked by: PapaDan
No, that is an additional option if you do not have a sturdy work surface to mount the machine.

1 HP 12 in. x 21 in. Wood Lathe, Variable Speed, 115-Volt, JWL-1221VS is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.

I wanted to move to bigger projects and this machine, although a little pricey is great. It is very solid and rigid. It is easy to use and the speed control is good and I like that it will control the set RPM's with varying cutting loads. I am going to put it to the test with Holiday presents this season.

Intermittently, it was throwing up an E7 error on the display. It wasn't a big problem, so I just lived with it. Two weeks ago, the Reverse switch no longer worked. So I called Technical Support (on Dec. 21) to report both problems. The technician walked me through the solution to the E7 error (clean the sensor on the motor, which was very easy). He also determined that I needed a new switch - covered under warranty. It was shipped to me in two days, and I installed it with no problems. My reverse worked again. However, the motor started running very fitfully, and eventually would throw up an E8 error. So back to Technical Support (on Dec. 27) to report this error. Again, another technician diagnosed the problem as a defective control module, and he said it would also be covered under warranty. The module will be received on Dec. 29, and I will be back in business. Even though the product had some failures, I'm very happy with the level of technical support, and also very happy that it has a 5-yr warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Solid Machine This lathe is very solid with a wisper quiet motor. It runs throughout the speed range with no vibrations. The centers lign up perfectly. The on off switch is in a better location than my other lathe. The RPM readout is awesome. Reverse switch is something I'm going to love for sanding. I have been turning wood for 68 years and must admit, rhis is the kind of lathe that the operator controls and not the other way around. I wish I had purchased it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lathe for a beginner or experienced user This is my first lathe, I researched many many lathes and finally selected the jet 1221vs. It had all the features I wanted in a lathe. I have not turned a bowl yet, but I have turned several spindle projects, and really like the variable speed. The ease of changing speed ranges could not be easier. The 1 hp motor performs as expected, I have not bogged down the motor yet. Overall one great lathe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has great features and is very user friendly This lathe is high end and has all the features of more expensive ones. It came right out of the box ready to use with minimal assembly. The lathe base was not flat and had to be shimmed but otherwise very easy to set up and use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding lathe A friend of mine came over to help set up the lathe and could not believe how nice the lathe was ans the quality for the price. It even had some things on it that his larger Jet did not have. For the money you are getting a great lathe.
