I am considering getting a small lathe for my workshop. I have looked around online and gone to a few local shops as well. Space is limited and I am not planning on making anything large. I came across a jet 1014 online. Low-end, yes, but as a beginner I am not sure I am ready to drop a lot of money on something bigger and better. It’s almost 10 years old but unused in its original box. Comes with a bed extension, stand, and stand extension, all unopened. Owner dropped price to $495 for everything. How well would this lathe hold up, particularly after sitting unused for so long? Or better to keep looking? The newer 1015 with same stand and extensions would run about $900+. Any thoughts?
