JET’s new 1221VS Woodworking Lathe incorporates three optimally designed speed ranges along with an enhanced control panel, exclusive ratchet belt system and forward/reverse without stopping. It is powered by a 1 HP, 6 amp, single-phase motor that delivers variable spindle speeds ranging from 60 to 3600 rpm. The three speed ranges are optimally designed to perform specific woodturning tasks. The slow speed range (60 to 900 rpm) is useful for intricate turnings,, says the company,while a middle range (110-1800 rpm) is for sanding and finishing, and the high range (220 to 3600) is best for small diameter items and general woodturning. Belt changes are made with a ratchet-style belt tension system. A digital spindle readout shows the needed rpm level for adjustment and fine-tuning. The digital readout, on/off switch and forward/reverse switch are located on a control panel, located beneath the tailstock. The lathe headstock features 24 integrated indexing positions. There is a spring-loaded spindle lock to facilitate work piece changes. The tailstock has an Acme thread and a through hole for drilling. The JET 1221VS lathe weighs 121 lbs. and measures 33-3/5 in. L x 11 in. W x 17-7/10 in. H.
