      Comments about JWL-1236, 12 in. x 34-1/2 in. 3/4 HP Woodworking Lathe:

      I've had this lathe for nearly 10 years, and have been most satisfied with its performance. I've turned bowls and spindles both to my satisfaction. I was told that big lathes such as this are not precision enough for such items as pens and keychains, but I've used this one with excellent results, often ignoring the mini-lathe sitting beside it.

      I would like to see a different placement for the motor and the legs are too weak for heavier projects. Those are the only concerns I have with it and for my uses, they are not issues.

        The only issue I have is the design of the motor placement. If you look carefully at the photo you will notice that the motor is mounted on the back right next to your spindle. Other that that it is a great quality lathe at a reasonable price.

          This is a great, well-made wood lathe. It contains all the capabilities needed for the beginner or casual do-it-yourselfer. The start switch can be locked with a padlock to prevent unwanted use. The unit arrived with the plastic knob on the speed adjustment handle broken. Jet Sales immediately sent me the entire speed selector assembly as a replacement. I could not have possibly asked for better service. I will definately consider CPO and Jet products when making future purchases.

            Comments about JWL-1236, 12 in. x 34-1/2 in. 3/4 HP Woodworking Lathe:

            I use the jwl 1236 lathe for turning table pedestals, bowls, vases, spindles, you name something round and I've probly turned it on this lathe. Its a great lathe for the price. The best feature about this lathe is the swiveling headstock. I tend not to use the detents, but rather swivel it 45* and lock it in, this works awesome for turning most bowls.
            CONS: There are 2 things I dislike about this lathe. The tool rest extension arm doesn't seem sturdy enough to use on large bowls with the headstock turned out a 90*. Its just not stable enough.
            PROS: Its got enough power to spin a 30" oak pedestal thats got an 11" diamater. Thats pretty good I'd say.

            CON 2: I would like a heavier base. The bed is indeed cast and heavy, but the base either needs to be bolted to my floor, or heavier. When I turn large things that are not cylindrical I've got to be very careful not to spin it to fast.

            PRO 2: Owned the lathe for 8 years and have never had any maintence issues. Maybe I'll need a belt soon, I would suggest upgrading to a link style belt instead of using the v belt.

            CON 3: The motor overheated on me once. It smelled really bad, but I hit the reset and it started right back up and has been going ever since.

            I have put a lot of hours of use into this lathe, I can't see myself needing to upgrade to anything else. Its a great beginner lathe, as well as intermediate. If I ever "turn" professional, I may want to consider something a little more rigid and robust. But, this suits my needs for now.

              What is meant by outboard turning?

              • A:

                That's on the opposite side of the headstock from the tailstock.

                A:

                that is when you slide the headstock to the far end of the lathe and turn a bowl without a tailstock in place and you are turning over the floor instead of the bed on the lathe to allow for larger diameter projects.
