Jet Metalworking lathes are known for precision and quality. Jet has an extensive offering of turning machines to enable the customer to choose the correct machine for their application. All Jet Metalworking lathes come well equipped including steady rest, follow rest, 2 chucks (size depends on machine), face plate, and tool post. All lathes come with a gap bed section for larger diameter work and hardened and ground bed ways. The next step is to determine which Jet Metalworking lathe is best for you and your application(s). One of the biggest questions to ask yourself is what is the diameter of the piece that I am turning? This will allow you to determine which lathe best suits your needs. Please keep in mind that the differences between the Bench Lathe vs Engine Lathe is that the bench lathe comes in two pieces: the lathe itself and its stand. Upon receiving the machine the lathe portion must be installed onto the stand. The engine lathe comes as one piece.
