    Jet 1442 Lathe Question

    I've been looking for some iron legs to use for an industrial styled table and was wondering about using the legs for a Jet 1442 or equivalent. Is it possible that someone who has one could give me a few dimensions such as the height, width at the bottom and the top?

    Thanks in advance.

    Dave, I don't have one but here's a list of specs from the Rockler site:


    • Model Number: JWL-1442VSK
    • Height: 44"
    • Width: 17"
    • Length: 60"
    • Swing Over Bed: 14"
    • Swing Over Tool Rest Base: 10"
    • Distance Between Centers: 42"
    • Headstock Taper: MT-2
    • Spindle Nose: 1" x 8 TPI
    • Tailstock Taper: MT-2
    • Hole Through Tailstock: 3/8"
    • Ram Travel: 4"
    • Centerline of Spindle to Floor: 43-1/2"
    • Headstock Movement: Pivot 360 and Slide
    • Indexing Positions: 36
    • Style: Leg Stand
    • Bed Construction: Cast Iron
    • Motor Voltage: 115 V
    • Prewired Voltage: 115 V
    • Motor Current: 8 A
    • Motor Phase: 1 Ph



    From this, the overall length is 60"; height of legs would be about 36".

    Thanks Bill.

    I guess from your calculation of the legs being about 36" tall, they're too tall for what I was wanting.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Ted,

    Yes. I did look at those and the shorter ones might be an option. They would require the table to be deeper than I really want. I was just hunting for other possibilities, too.

    With your skills, it would be relatively easy to have your own design fabricated by a metal shop. Plasma cutters abound and many shops have CNC plasma machines that can crank out something in heavy plate in no time at all, complete with frills and flourishes...it's amazing. Weld on some top and bottom brackets and you're good to go. Just a thought.
