    JET 1220VS questions

    Will the JET bed extension fit on the JET 1220 VS lathe?

    Okay, that is a better answer to the question I should have asked. Thanks Bruce. Appreciate you taking the time to answer.

    Super, found it finally, the number on the one I saw didn't list it fitting the 1220 VS. Thinking I might have the Craftsman lathe and duplicator sold so will be putting that money towards this. I am not a bowl turner and don't have the money for one of those big mustard/mayonaise lathes!

    You don't need one... unless you're planning on turning bath tubs... your little 1220 will turn up to an 11 7/8" bowl... you'll be really really close to the ways though....

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Tom, you had to say that. I have a plan for turning a bowl from a board. Cutting it round attaching to the face plate, then cutting same width circles from the board (say 1 1/2" wide) at a 30 degree angle. Cut the ring loose, take it off, do the next ring and continue on until at the bottom of what would be the bowl. Then they stack, so glue together, put back on the face plate, clean up inside and outside. Sand, seal, deliver! We'll see. Keep fingers crossed on sale of Craftsman. That is THE only way I can consider doing this.
