JET has a new 14” x 40” Variable Speed Woodworking Lathe. The floor-standing JWL-1440VSK (Model 719400K) has a 14-1/2” swing and 40” between centers, with a sliding headstock that pivots 360˚ and seven positive locking positions (at 0˚, 30˚, 60˚, 90˚, 120˚, 180˚ and 270˚). Powered by a 1hp, single-phase TEFC motor, the JWL-1440VSK delivers variable spindle speeds from 400 to 3,000 rpm, with an rpm display on the front of the headstock. A pivoting head allows you to rough out large objects like bowls and platters in an outboard position, and the positive locking tool-rest features redesigned clamping for greater control at the point of contact to reduce slippage. An optional extension bed can be mounted in three separate positions for larger outboard turnings; the extension bed increases the lathe’s capacity to 60” between centers. The JET JWL-1440VSK Woodworking Lathe is priced at $1,599.99.
