Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

            This is a terrific full-size variable speed lathe. I recently upgraded from a smaller lather and am very happy with my purchase. The lathe is heavy (over 400 pounds) but it comes in pieces and can be moved to the assembly site with a hand cart. I also looked at the Powermatic but it was twice the price and weighed over 600 pounds. It probably would have required two men to assemble.

                  A:

                  "Swing over cross slide" would be the largest diameter that will clear the cross slide on top of the carriage.

              • JWL-1642EVS, 16 in. x 42 in. 1-1/2 HP Woodworking Lathe

                Q:

                What are the dimensions? i.e. How wide is it at the widest point(s)? (The leg stance width?) And how long is the total length; from outside of motor to outside tip of tail-stock handle when the tail-stock is positioned all the way at the end of the bed? I have limited room for installation of a lathe in my small shop. Thanks.
