Today I ordered a new JET JWL-1442VSK wood lathe. The dealer did not have one in-stock, but it is to be delivered from the distribution center on Friday per his promise.
I would like to thank ND2ELK for introducing me to LumberJocks.com. The reviews and forums were a great help to me.
One of the reasons I chose this particular lathe is the accessories I have for my JET 1014 lathe are nearly all usable on the larger unit. My small lathe, which I have been using for three or four years, will be almost fully used as a sharpening/honing station for my carving tools. I use eight inch wheels, both paper with green compound and floppy with white. The hard felt wheel I have is used very little, primarily for heavier sharpening with emery paste.
After the new lathe gets to me I will give some feedback on setting up. etc. And I am really looking forward to larger turning projects.
