comparison of Jet lathes

Dennis Taylor (Akron, Ohio)
>I am still searching for a full size lathe..I am curious is there a signicicant difference between the Jet 1236 and the 1442, other than size of material to be turned on them...I am a home hobbiest, and don't sell my work, so would a 1236 meet those needs or am I better off with the 1442?..the cost on the 1442 is high, while Amazon has the 1236 for about 560.00 or so, compared to the 899.99...any input is apreciated..Dennis
