Howdy folks, I have a Jet JML10414 Mini Lathe like the image shown and the extension bed as shown below, the distance between centers is 14" stock model. The extension bed that I have will extend the working distance between centers to 40". I need another 6 or so inches in order to turn my rear chair legs for the shaker rockers I am going to build. I like the small foot print of this lathe, it also has an indexing head which I really need for my rung hole positioning marks for the chair legs. So I'd really like to use this lathe for chair parts, but it comes in just a tad too short. Does anyone have any suggestions to get that extra 6" into the working distance?
I have a Delta 1 1/2 HP dust collector in my shop that for the most part does a good job. I have 4" PVC pipe run to all of my machines and usually only have one gate open at a time. However there are times when I have help in the shop and we are using multiple machines and just don't get enough air flow to pull on the machines. My Delta table saw is the worse of the bunch. I have the overhead guard/dust collector and pulling off the bottom but it just doesn't get the enough pull. I am thinking of going to a 3 hp to get the higher CFM's and to allow multiple machines to run at the same time. I have been reading a few reviews but no real good comparisons. I really like the looks of the Laguna, but the few reviews I have read were not good, talking about leaks and missing parts and trouble getting replacement parts. Have any of you seen a recent comparison by any of the Wood Working Magazines lately? I would really be interested in what they have to say.
My old Delta iron bed (1440) is on its' last leg. Turning a bowl is painstakingly slow. The motor is strong but alas the reeves drive will not keep tension on the belt even though I've replaced the springs and belt- drive pulleys are no longer available. I thought about getting a Oneway 2000 series but it would be difficult to plugin at the homeless shelter after my divorce. Pretty much the same applies to a Powermatic. So, on my budget, I'm looking at a Jet 719500. It's a little more powerful than the old Delta and has a few other minor differences that I can work around but it looks like it might work for me. And, in November it goes on sale at a 15% discount with no shipping as there is a Jet dealer about a mile away. I guess I'm asking is there something about this lathe that should make me wary. At my age, I know it will be the last one I buy so I won't want any surprises down the road. Thanks for any input/suggestions and/or character assassinations
I have wanted a drum sander for a long time and I really want a Supermax 16-38 but really it's too big for what I do and of course several more $100 than the Jet. Has anyone had any experience with the Jet 10" sander? Thanks for any help.
