Topic tags/keywords: lathe inquiry

There’s one review in Lumberjocks on this lathe that was very favorable. I am wondering about one on offer I have locally for one of these, four years old, looks new, asking $1,400.00. He is including some tools and accessories in addition to the lathe. Is that a reasonable asking price?

Thanks.

I’m on my second Jet lathe, and I’ve been very happy with both. The one you are looking at, if it has electronic variable speed, would be good to have. I just don’t know what the new retail price would be for it, but think it’s over $2000. I’m assuming it’s in good shape.

If this is the one you are asking about that is a fair price if it runs okay!Suspect might be little older than four years could also be wrong but if operational should be a good lathe.

Have the same lathe, mine a lot older and have no complaints.

Very good lathe. I bought the same lathe november 2015 on sale. 15% off at black friday. Bought local so I had to pay tax, so right at $2200 out the door with the 15% off.
$1400 sounds like a good deal. And with some tools too.
Wish I could have found a deal like that.
Good luck.
