    Jet Lathe is in

    This is my first try at uploading pics to the site. If it doesn't work it's not my fault, it means the site software it too complicated for me.

    Here is the Jet finally in its home. I needed to move lathe locations so I could run it while the family watches TV upstairs, the Grizzley made too much noise. I still need to run some better lighting.

    Hey good for you Jim, glad to see you finally made the decision on what one to get. Did you get it at the WW's show you recently went to?

    Naw, got it from a guy who had it for a year and then decided he didn't have the time. Came with the lathe, legs, Robert Sorby set of six tools (don't know what I'm going to do with them yet), a 5/8" bowl gouge, Woodcraft 8" slow speed grinder, wolverine jig w/bowl gouge fixture and a Nova chuck. All for a measly $800, I was happy to find the deal.

    $800............

    What kind of gun did you use

    OK, now the floor is WAY too clean!

    Great deal, great lathe, man, you must be living right!

    That's a nice lathe! I've dreamed about trading my worn out jet mini for that beast.....
