I have a Jet 1642 with the 1 1/2 hp motor and am turning some magnolia that has been drying for a few months..Im just now getting to it. These are small bowls...maybe 8" max in dia ..and between 3 to 5" deep. Im using the EWT Ci1 , the Hunter Hercule tool, and the EWT Ci5 Hollower.... I would be turning and get a light catch and lathe would make a squelching sound and momentary pause and continue on. I put new inserts in all the tools ...It was time ...They had been used a lot...It seemed real easy for this catch ,sound and pause to happen..easier than I thought...I was just wondering is it normal for a Jet 1642 to so easily do this..??? I had to make sure my tool presentation was the best I could do (still learning on bowls...turned a ton of flutes though)and had to make sure ht of rest was the best I could do....Is this normal with the Jet 1642? Sound like just a learning curve Im going through? Happened quite a few times ...not the snatch the tool from your hand kind of catch ..just catch,squelch, pause and go again.
