SWEET MACHINE!!!
Took about 45 minutes to get all unpacked and plugged in. I bought the stand with this purchase and recommend anyone looking to purchase this lathe do the same.

As I removed the base plate, I sadly realized there were set screws that I did not loosen. So I ruined the spindle. I called to ask for mercy and 3 days later I received a free replacement part. I am a JETT fan and this just confirmed why.

This is a great little, solid machine. I really like 1 hp motor, a noticeable upgrade from my previous midi lathe.

Great Lathe!
I bought the 1221VS to replace a smaller lathe and after using the lathe for several different projects have found that it exceeded all of my expectations. In my opinion the 1221VS is a feature packed Midi-Lathe that is comparable to a much more expensive larger lathe that I own. The only minus I found was the spindle lock could be improved but this is a minor complaint. I would recommend this lathe for both beginners and seasoned wood turners.

Very well built small machine
I have two lathe's. This is used for my smaller turnings, however after using it for several turnings. I am sure it would turn a much larger block of wood as long as it clears the bed. Nice smooth machine and I love the on off switch on the lower right side. Very safe. If I was not interested in turning large bowls this lathe could be my main lathe.

forget a big turn, good for little stuff
this machine has a nice design and easy to use. Will be good for small diameter turns but not so much for large diameters. I've been making soda/beer can holders/mugs out of 6x6 red cedar. My old 1/2 hp elcheapo lathe would rough the 6x6 down to a cylinder in just a few minutes. I was very dissapointed when this lathe with the larger 1 hp motor takes about three times as long to do the same job. It bogs down real easy, even on the slow pulleys and motor at max speed. It's gonna take a whole lot longer to turh down a single mug, that's gonna cut into my profits. :(

Right machine for me!!
The Jet JWL-1221VS is an excellent addition to my home wood shop and is used on a daily basis. It has the features that are needed to make wood turning fun and prepare the pieces for finishing...most of which is done on the lathe as well. This is the first lathe that I have added to my shop since 1988 (it still works like a charm). The motor developed an unusual noise at low speed after about four hours of use. I will monitor it to see if it continues and/or gets worse.

Very well built lathe
I'm a new wood turner and just setting up my lathe and support equipment. Have not turned anything yet but getting close to starting. I bought the Jet 1221VS because of the great ratings it has received since it was first introduced. Based on my initial review of the machine its very well built and will serve me well for a very long time.
