« Part 19: How did I live without it?!?! Part 20 of Building My Work Shop series Part 21: Cryo or PM Turning Tools??? »

Just got back from my most favoritist Jet Dealer in the Whole Wild World, Equipment Sales & Surplus in Auburn Washington. I picked an almost new Jet JWL-1642EVS-2 the UBEBABLE Price of One Thousand Two Hundred Fifty Dollars! Yep $1,250 for one of the best Lathes on the market! For less than half of retail.

True I had to sell my Festool Domino to get it but I made a quick $300 profit on that deal. So it was very much worth it. Now I just need to sell the Craftsman Lathe I just bought and get rid of the extra cabinets in my garage and I will be ready to go a turning.

I just bought a cool spindle adapter so I can use all my 1”x8 attachments on the 1 1/4”x8 spindle on the 1642.

Awesome deal!! your link has a few extra letters in it at the end, I think. Google figured out on the second try.
