A woodworking Jet lathe creates a symmetrical object by turning a work piece on its axis and applying a tool to cut, shape, sand or knurl the work piece as it rotates. Jet lathes are often used in wood facing, reducing the length of a work piece, or wood turning, creating shapes and designs on wooden objects.
Mini Jet lathes are ideal for the beginner wood turner or the advanced wood turner looking for a smaller and easy-to-use machine. Mini Jet lathes are available in standard and variable speed models with improved belt tensioning, a sturdy tool rest base and wider bed ways. Full size Jet lathes provide up to 2 HP of power and a capacity of 16 in. over the bed, for larger tasks. In addition to woodworking lathes, Jet also carries precision metalworking lathes.
