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

      This lathe replaced my 1st lathe a grizzly. It is by far a much better lathe. I was able to assemble it by myself and had it running in just over a hour. I did purchase the 120 volt due to the fact I did not want to run another circuit for it in my shop. I have used it everyday since it arrived with no problems. There several thing I like about the lathe. The speed control has allowed me to turn several blanks that I had for a while but due to their shape could not use. My old lathe would not go slow enough. The tail stock with it's depth gage is a good idea. How easy it is to change the belt drive in the head stock is another feature I like. Now I spent weeks researching lathes and determined that this was the best for the money in it's price range. It happen to go on sale and with it's free shipping sealed the deal. The only problem was not with the lathe but the shipping company. And it's a small problem, they called to set up the delivery and than had to cancel due a truck problem. They delivered it the next day and since it was free shipping I can't complain. I have and will continue to tell folks that this purchase was a great deal from CPO and Jet makes a great lathe.

          Heavy, but that's a good thing. From the time we opened the box, my wife and I had the lathe running in 45 minutes. It's so very quiet I had to take off my ear protection to hear it run.

          One "negative" comment, and it's not really negative, is that the spindle size is 1 1/4" and the jaws I'd previously owned were 1". Okay, go buy some new jaws. And I did.

          Fairly priced, quality machine and I expect to be turning with it well past it's wonderful warranty period.

                    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.
