Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. March 11, 2014
