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.

Belt Drive Bench Lathe- this machine is great for low production applications because the operator must manually change the belts to change the speed. The advantages for this machine include a quieter operation than the geared head machine. It is also less expensive and lighter than the geared head machine. It is less capable of heavier cuts than the geared head lathe. If you are looking for an economical means for turning parts and manually changing speeds is not an issue for you than the Jet belt driven machine is a good choice. The Jet Belt driven lathes have a spindle bore capacity of 1-3/8".

Geared Head Bench Lathe- this is a great machine where time is money. These are much better for the production atmosphere because the changing of speeds is much quicker than that of the belt driven machine. This machine is also much stronger and heavier then the belt driven machine and can withstand much more in terms of tougher to machine materials with larger capacities. This machine can be equipped with an optional stand to place the lathe upon. The spindle bore starts at 1/1/2" and goes to 4 1/8"
