Product Information:

Jet Red Assurance Program


With 16" of swing and 42" of turning capacity between #2 MT centers, you'll appreciate the capacity on Jet's 16" x 42" Lathe.



  • Bed, legs, headstock and tailstock are all constructed of cast iron, giving plenty of weight for vibration dampening.

  • A full 4" ram travel on the tailstock, which also has a 3/8" through hole, provides tremendous flexibility.

  • The 115V, 1-1/2 HP motor is operated by an electronic inverter which enables operation at any speed between 0 and 3,200 RPM (which is displayed on a digital readout).

  • The 1-1/4" x 8 TPI spindle measures 44-1/2" from floor and features positive indexing in 10° increments, giving a total of 36 indexing positions for fast, efficient fluting and veining.

  • Outboard turning is simplified by sliding the headstock to the end of the bedway.

  • Special webbings are cast into legs to accept 2x4's or a 2x12 for supporting a solid tool or sandbag shelf.

  • Includes: 14" tool rest, 6" face plate, spur center, dual bearing live center, and knockout bar.


  • Shipping weight 455 lb. Additional $75 fee for excess weight will be applied at checkout. Package will be brought to the back of the delivery truck for you to unload. Please select the appropriate delivery option below. See 'Ships Direct from Manufacturer' link for warranty and return details.

    Comments about Jet 16 x 42 Wood Lathe Pro, Model JWL-1642EVS, 1-1/2 HP :

    It has performed as it should. This replaced a Jet 1236 with a lot less HP motor. So I don't think the loss of power is in the motor or HP, but in the 3 phase converter. I also think this is a wonderful safety feature. With out it, I can see bent tools, broken tool rests, and injuries. I turn open segment vases and hollow forms and this lathe is my dream come true at a very fair price

    Comments about Jet 16 x 42 Wood Lathe Pro, Model JWL-1642EVS, 1-1/2 HP :

    I puchased this lathe after giving up on the contantly rising price of the other popular lathe turners flock to. I have not regretted one minute of this decision. This Jet lathe has done everything I have asked of it. It will stall with too heavy a hand while roughing large bowls but thats it. I have not yet needed to replace the belt. My 5 year warranty has just expired and the lathe is going strong, the only maintenace I have done is cleaning the ways and underside of the banjo and tailstock with high grit sandpaper and wd40. The wide stance of the legs of this lathe negate the need for sandbags or other ballast. I have turned the smallest of finials to 16 inch bowls with this lathe. Assembly was striaght forward and done by myself including carrying disassembled parts from my drive down a flight of steps to my basement, and I am not a large man. Cam locks on the tailstock and banjo are second to none, and have not required any adjustment. Quill locks and tool post locks work like the day I unwrapped them. The underbed tool caddy is very handy however the overbed guard is a waste of money and should be discontinued. This lathe runs as smooth, quiet and powerful as the day I bought it. Make the purchase, you will not regret it.

    Comments about Jet 16 x 42 Wood Lathe Pro, Model JWL-1642EVS, 1-1/2 HP :

    I love this thing, my shop has a very lacking electrical system and this thing doesnt even make the lights flicker like every other power tool I own. Very smooth operation, I love the ease of set up, the included spur center, face plate and live center. Super quiet which is nice if (like me) you make you tube turning videos. Ive had it about a month now, so far so good.

    After fighting with a Sears Craftsman lathe the Jet is a breath of fresh air. Easy to set up, powerfull and quiet. Have not tried any large (8" or more) pieces yet but sure it will do fine.It did require me to move my GFI as it is well documented the startup power on this Lathe will trip a GFI.

    This is my third lathe. I am pleased with the electronic variable speed drive. This lathe compares well with the Powermatic 3520 at a substantial savings. Fit and finish are excellent.
