Great lathe

Comments On Apr 12, 2015:The jet 1221 has been a great lathe to work with. Previous to this lathe I had a mini lathe for small projects. This lathe runs quieter and has so much power. I am excited to start turning bowls and plates with it. I would recommend this lathe without hesitation.

Great lathe

Comments On Feb 25, 2015:I purchased this lathe a little over a year ago shortly after it came out. I was purchasing my first lathe being new to turning. After looking at many lathes and a month of research I went with the 1221vs. I could not have been happier with my purchase. Ready to go out of box, and great customer service when I made a rookie mistake. Plenty of power, have done bowls and platters out to the 12 inch max and motor had no problem. I got it as a beginner lather but this will always have a place in my shop.

JET 1221 VS

Comments On Dec 16, 2014:Purchased this lathe during Black Friday sale along with Extensions & Stands Received within 2 wks. Set up and wow was I impressed! This is the quietest, smoothest operating lathe I have ever used. If your looking for a great lathe in the 12" category, there is probably none better!

Very good!!!!

Comments On Jan 06, 2014:This is the "dream machine" for my new shop!! This is a very well designed machine, has plenty of power, and is heavy enough to stay put on most work, however, it would be a plus to have tabs on each end to anchor it to the workbench to keep it from scooting on off-center off balance pieces.
