I have a Jet JWL-1221VS lathe, and I have been concerned about it for a while. It seems to me that is nosier than it should be, but I am not sure what is causing the noise. It also seems that sometimes I get some vibration when using a pen mandrel, but I am not sure if that is from the lathe or the mandrel.
Today I noticed a new wrinkle. When I removed a pen mandrel from the lathe, the spindle taper on the mandrel was pretty warm. I can’t recall ever before noticing the spindle taper on the mandrel getting warm. I had just completed running at max speed while applying a friction finish.
My question is, have you ever noticed the spindle taper on your pen mandrel heating up?
