Shaping, smoothing, finishing, fluting and veining all done on one machine -- the JET, JWL-1220 is a dream tool for any lathe enthusiast. Featuring a 3/4-horsepower motor that handles increased capacities easily, this lathe can maintain consistent rpm through a much wider range of turning situations. Best of all, you can adjust the headstock, tailstock and tool rest base without having to use tools. Nifty extras, such as the convenient cordless worklight, 6 in. and 10 in. toolrest, and convenient cord wrap make this a dream machine. A pair of large-diameter retractable carry handles allows for easier storage, that is, if you ever want to put this lathe away.

  • Heavy-duty cast-iron lathe bed adds stability while limiting vibration during operation
  • Indexing mechanism which allows for fast, efficient fluting and veining operations
  • Cord wrap for convenient storage of 6 foot power cord

      Comments about JWL-1220, 12 in. x 20 in. 3/4 HP Woodworking Lathe:

      The lathe itself gets 4 stars my only complaint in access to the belt to change the speed is alittle cramped and hard to access. Customer service left alittle to be desired. My lathe was damaged during shipping and the power switch was broken. I called Jet and they sent out a new switch. The complaint is they didn't offer me and other fix for it then we'll send you a new switch. No you can send it back. No you can take it here to get fixed. Just we'll send you a switch and good luck installing it yourself. The other complain is it took over a week for the new switch to get here. So my band new lathe that I paid extra money to get it shipped here sooner sat in my basement collecting dust for a week before I could use it the first time.

        I purchased a JWL1220 with plans to start making pens and possibly larger turning projects down the road. For now, this tool seems to be a perfect fit in my shop. CPO was perfect in all aspects of my purchase! Thanks CPO.

          This lathe came ready to go. There was minimal,set up or adjustments. The lathe is very sturdy well balanced and is suited for most of what I am doing. The changing of speeds is simple with one caution..make sure the belt and pulleys are always lined up. The cost of the machine, and the work it can do is well worth the investment. Very pleased. An extra belt is always a good idea..

              This lathe is rock steady with no vibration, runs true, I could not ask for better quality. Shipping time was great-Ordered on Tuesday-Rec'd on Thursday however, the foam form it was shipped in was broken beyond further use. Overall I could not be happier with my purchase. Thanks.

                  This lathe is no longer available. The replacement for this lathe is model JWL1221VS. A chuck is not a requirement, but is handy when working on more than one piece at a time. Information pertaining to the chuck can be found on page 18 of the manual. Here is a link to the manual:
