There is a place in Libertyville that’s selling the Jet 12” X 20” Lathe, Model JWL-1220, for 395$. I wanted to upgrade from my old 1950’s powerkraft. Do you guys think its a good deal?

Both Jet 1220s the one you are looking at and VS model are discontinued. Replaced by Jets 1221 model but twice the price. I would ask for little off that price. Who knows if Jet still has parts for that lathe.
