Something wrong with my Jet mini lathe?

>I have the one that's not variable speed. I notice that if I pull on the spindle ,away from the headstock along the axis of the spindle, that it moves about a quarter of an inch. It springs right back, and I don't have any problems while turning . But is this normal?
