Turning Archive 2006
Walt Drummond, Middlesex, NJ
>Trucker just delivered my new Jet lathe today. I got the Jet 1442VS with the cast iron leg option. Lathe is heavy and solid.
What a difference from the Delta midi I've been turning on up to now. Smooth and strong. A wonder to turn on. Fit and finish were very good. Only problem was a bent headstock swivel indexing pin. Called Jet's help number and within 5 minutes the gentleman said the new parts were on their way. Can't beat service like that.
Turned a small urn in about 10 minutes that used to take half hour or more.
Can't wait for tomorrow to spend the day in the shop.
Like a kid at Christmas.....
