Powerful 3/4 HP Motor for Increased Capacity
Able to support stock measuring up to 12 inches in diameter and 20 inches in length, the JWL-1220 owes its robust performance to a powerful 3/4 HP motor that easily handles increased capacity without any interruption in its operation. The motor's flexibility allows you to tackle bigger projects or materials of various sizes without bogging down your lathe, and it also ensures consistent RPM through a much wider range of turning situations.

Cast-Iron Bed for Stability; Spindle Lock for Fast Fluting and Veining
A heavy-duty cast-iron lathe bed adds stability while dramatically limiting vibrations during operation so you enjoy precise results. Additionally, the spindle features a lock that makes it easier to remove faceplates, chucks, and other accessories with one hand. It also has indexing capabilities for fast and efficient fluting and veining operations.

Live Center and Hollow Tailstock for Efficient Boring
To help complete projects quickly and easily, and to tackle a range of jobs, the live center has a removable pin for boring through stock, while a hollow tailstock allows you to perform long hole boring for lamps and other vessels.

Cam-Lock Mechanism for Tool-Free Adjustments
Designed to be easy to operate, the JWL-1220 includes a cam-lock mechanism that gives you the freedom to adjust the headstock, tailstock, and tool-rest base without tools. There's also a built-in work light to illuminate your workspace as well as your workpiece while turning so you're able to see your results during every step of the work process.

Carry Handles and Cord Wrap for True Portability
Measuring 15.5 x 12 x 32 (WxHxD) and weighing 98.3 pounds, the truly portable JWL-1220 has integrated, large-diameter, retractable carry handles and a cord wrap for convenient storage of the six-foot power cord. It also comes with both six-inch and 10-inch tool-rests for versatility, a storage tray, and a three-inch faceplate.

For added peace of mind, the JWL-1220 is backed by a five-year warranty.

About JET: A History of Sharing New, Feature-Rich Products
Opened in 1958 after the founder of the company, Leslie P. Sussman, took the first Boeing Jet Airplane trip from Seattle, Washington to Japan, JET began as a small dealer that sold air hoists and trolleys out of a single hardware store in Seattle. Over the years, JET has carried everything from snowmobiles, transmitter radios, and forklifts to nylon stockings, but by the early 1970s, metalworking had become the base of their business line. And by the 1980s, JET had expanded into the realm of woodworking. Today, you'll find that JET offers a wide range of popular woodworking tools that are backed with best-in-class features and excellent service.

From the Manufacturer

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 ¾-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, tail-stock and tool rest base without having to use tools. Nifty extras, such as the convenient cordless work-light, 6-inch and 10-inch tool-rest, 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.
