new lathes 2013Two new 15″ lathes will be added, September of 2013.  JET’s new 15” Woodworking Lathe, available in a standard version (Model JWL-1015) and variable speed version (Model JWL-1015VS), provides optimum control, as well as positive-locking indexing.  Built for easy speed changes these new lathes are owered by a 1/2 hp, single-phase, TEFC motor. The 4-amp, model JWL-1015VS delivers variable spindle speeds ranging from 200 to 3600 rpm.  Three speed ranges are designed to perform different types of woodturning tasks. The slow speed range (200 to 1050 rpm) is best for detailed turnings, mid- range (300-1750 rpm) is great for sanding and finishing, and the high speed (600 to 3600) is intended for general woodturning.

Speed changes on the 5-amp model JWL-1015 are made by transferring the drive belt on stepped pulleys inside the headstock.  The drive belt is de-tensioned by pulling up a lever located beneath the headstock.  The hinged headstock cover and redesigned access door provide increased working space over most mini-lathes.  The belt is switched manually to the pulley corresponding to one of six spindle speeds: 500, 840, 1240, 1800, 2630 or 3975 rpm.  Then the cover is replaced and lever pressed back down to restore belt tension.

The lathe headstock features 24 integrated indexing positions, making it easy to cut evenly spaced features for fluting and veining applications.
A self-ejecting tailstock is provided for safe and easy removal of tooling.  The hollow tailstock and removable tip on live center allows for boring through stock.  Optional accessories include a lathe stand with height adjustments and wide feet for stability, 21” bed extension and extension stand.

The JET JWL-1015 Woodworking Lathe, Model 719100, Woodcraft Item #858827 is priced at $479.99.  The JET JWL-1015VS Woodworking Lathe, Model 719110, Woodcraft Item #858828 will be $579.99.  Both are warranted under the JET RED AssuranceTM program.

8 inch bench grinderThe final new item for Jet to release in September will be the new Slow Speed (1725 rpm) 8″WW Bench Grinder, Model 726100, Woodcraft Item #858829 for $329.99.  The benchtop grinder includes two high-quality Norton® wheels: an 80 grit 3X Blue Ceramic Alumina K Grade wheel for coarse grinding and a 100 grit White Aluminum Oxide wheel for finish grinding.  Protecting your eyes from those high quality wheel producing sparks and dust particles are oversized adjustable shields.  The single-speed benchtop grinder is driven by a ½ hp, 115V single-phase induction motor.  The two 8” wheels have a 1” width and a 5/8” arbor.  The unique feature to these bench grinders are the large etched tool rests for easy marking for chisel sharpening angle location reference, which also have 45° of travel and a scale that has a 1° resolution.  A bench grinder stand is optionally available at additional cost of $ as well.
