I need some advice… I am looking to upgrade to a bigger lathe and was wondering what you might know about the Jest 1442EV or the Jet 1642EV… Have you use either? I know the specifications on each but if you have one or the other what do you consider some of it’s strengths or weaknesses? I am on a limited budget but there is about $600 price difference at our local Woodcraft… I am presently doing pen turning on a mini lathe and doing small bowls as well… That thing is taking quite a beating if I try to do a full size 10 bowl… I want to do some bigger stuff but not huge… Maybe 14-16 stock but with options… You expertise will assist greatly!!!
