Wally Dickerman in Arizona
>While at the local Woodcraft today I examined the new Jet mini. 12 inch swing, 18 inches between centers. The motor is 3/4 HP. It has a wider, heavier bed, an index with spindle lock and comes with 2 toolrests, a 6 incher and a 10 incher. Sadly, the toolrest shaft is still only 5/8-inch. The price? A surprising $299. In my opinion, a very good lathe at that low price. I assume that a variable speed version will follow.
