The JWL-1443 wood lathe features simple and convenient controls with a mechanical variable control. This makes it ideal as a serious hobbyist lathe. The bed is made from cast iron and machined to a perfectly flat surface. The stand is pressed steel and has a built in tool tray. The lathe is able to handle both large and small pieces with ease. The powerful 750 watt motor is enough to handle the most demanding of jobs. The machine has variable sized pulleys with 10 stops to be able to handle most work, the speed is adjustable without the need to turn the machine off. The head stock can swivel to enable the turning of larger pieces. The lathe comes with a face plate, drive and live center.
Massive cast iron frame with stand as an OPTIONAL EXTRA. An electronic speed control system, digital speed display, reversing switch and 3-speed belt drive. Tensioning and loosening of the drive belt with a ratchet lever Dividing device. Eccentric fixation of the headstock and tailstock. JWL-1221VS is the representative of a new generation of professional Jet lathes, combining state-of-the-art control electronics and an improved mechanical part. In comparison with the previous model (JWL-1220), the rigidity was significantly increased: the frame with a similar length became wider, and the total weight increased by 10 kg; more powerful spindle bearings are used. For the machine bed and stand, you can buy extensions, in this case the maximum center-to-center distance will increase to 1080 mm. Transmission of rotation from the engine to the spindle is performed by a 6-riveted poly-V-belt, three pairs of pulleys are provided to select the power transmission range. The belt is rearranged without the use of an auxiliary tool: the tension is controlled by a ratchet-operated lever. Eccentric fastening systems for the pod and the tailstock make their settings as simple and fast. The machine is equipped with a dividing device with a spring-loaded spindle locking pin, which also simplifies installation / dismantling on the faceplate spindle (this requires only one key). The speed can be adjusted with the built-in electronics, with the selected value displayed on the digital display. On the control panel there is also a reverse switch, which is indispensable for some types of work, for example, when grinding.
