Well I guess I must be the last one with a C-man/Palmgren 15" lathe. The motor went out and I am not fixing it again. It will get a nice burial at the metal yard Friday. So went to Denver yesterday to pick up my Christmas gift that the LOML already had paid for. Didn't realize that she had called Woodcraft or Rockler in Denver in which Rockler had one in stock. She told me she had called as soon as she found out that the C-man went down and that I was looking at the Jet 1220 VS. I must say there is no comparison. This thing is sweet, quiet, and smooth. Speed control is smooth. Points on livecenter and drive center are dead on up/down and side to side. I am going to give it a go after lunch and turn a bottle stopper to see how she preforms.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
