    NEW Jet lathe???

    Jet/Powermatic has a new sale ad that shows this "NEW" Jet lathe. Looks like a "Left handed" model. (I thought with the age of digital photography, that reversed negatives were a thing of the past.) I'm sure this was just a mistake and the proof reader missed it, LOL.

    I think you're right - that proofreader should lose their job for that one! Ain't no Jet, that's a Tej!

    That's no proof reader's mistake...it's one of the rare Jets with the powered tailstock.

    Man am I glad I'm not the only one who noticed that.

    My best guess is that it looks like the picture was reversed and the JET logo doctored to not look mirrored. If this is the case, that'd mean the guy is turning left handed and maybe that upset the "flow" of some designer so they decided to flip it.

    They are all correct.
    FYI, to reverse the 'negative' with a digi pic all you need to do is one click with a photo editing program.
