    Comments about Jet 16" X 42" Wood Lathe Pro, Model JWL-1642EVS-2, 2HP :

    This is a quality lathe. The right size for both spindle and bowl work. Variable speed lets me turn at exactly the right rpm. I can't begin to say how this has improved my turning (had the chase the old lathe across the room at higher speeds!). As my confidence increased the rpm's went up. No problems with motor or belt. But I don't like having to move the headstock to turn large bowls outboard.

    Although I am a still learning about woodturning, I have been an avid woodworker for many years and appreciate a quality machine when I use one. The JET 1642 with the 2 hp motor is a beauty. Powerful, quiet, and well-made. One of the best tools I have ever owned, and one that will serve me well for many years to come.

    Comments about Jet 16" X 42" Wood Lathe Pro, Model JWL-1642EVS-2, 2HP :

    As reported by "Richard the Turner" in Aug. 2009, I also had a bad motor which was replaced by JET with no hassle. I had to swap it myself but it wasn't difficult. My replacement motor has been flawless for 9 months. And like Richard, I also love my lathe and hope that I continue to have good service from the replacement motor.

    The tool rest needs to be designed so that when in the lowest position, you can tighten the rotation lever without hitting the tool rest with the ball on the handle. I am enjoying the lathe. Well designed except the took rest.

    The motor had a low RPM knock, it was replaced by JET with no hassle. The replacement motor has the same knock. I was told by Jet they have had several issues with the motor knocking. Need to call again and get it replaced. Overall I love the lathe, lots of enjoyment.
