The Jet 1642 Wood Lathe is a powerful tool! Its 2 horsepower motor and its stable base provide the specifications to take on the tougher jobs. The variable speed control adding infinite speeds, the spindle lock, and the 16-inch swing all provide a beautiful corral of specifications to get the job done. Also, the swing out basket is a nice addition, providing a storage place for your tools between uses.
A few users have had problems with the motor, complaining of it smoking or being noisy. Also, some users have said the swing is too small and unable to work for their tasks.
