HF has a model that is exactly like one of the Jet models. I can’t recall the model number off the top of my head, but it was around $250. I picked it up for my wife last Christmas. She has been able to do pens, 7” bowls, and spindles up to 33”. It is a great beginner lathe, with a cast iron bed. Use the 20% coupon and you get a pretty good deal, IMO.

Edit: found the model number. It is 34706. It’s $270 on sale. There is always a 20% coupon available. Here is a link:
