I found a used Jet Lathe, much like this one
The speed control knob seems very stiff and wont turn counter clockwise. Feels like there is some sort of mechanical resistance. Is there some sequence or something else you need to do on these in order to turn this switch? I don’t know anything about lathes, but am thinking about buying one. And the guy who is selling it knows nothing about it. It was his dads and I got the impression he is deceased.
Also, just out of curiosity, what do you think something like this is worth in a used condition? Its in good shape, but used. Also, I don’t think it comes with the metal disc that attaches to the motor and your wood piece (sorry, don’t know the terminology). Also had a couple turning/carving tools, but they looked like cheap Chinese (Grizzley brand at best).
Thanks again and have a great new year!!
