This, the largest of the JET lathes, is a real powerhouse. With electronic variable speed and a sliding head, you can turn bowls up to 16" over the bed, even larger projects off the end and 42" spindles standard. Turn even longer projects with the optional bed extension.The JET 1642 Wood Lathes strike a perfect balance of versatility, cutting edge technology and performance. The 1642 Lathes have been designed and built to bring the accuracy, capability, durability and value you want in woodworking machinery.Features:Digital readout allows operator to dial in the desired speed for best resultsHeavy-duty cast-iron lathe bed adds stability while limiting vibration during operationElectronic inverter lets you operate the machine at any speed from 50 to 3,200 RPMIndexing mechanism which allows for fast, efficient, fluting and veining operationsSliding headstock may be positioned anywhere along the bed ways for maximum flexibility and user comfortHigh/low speed change lever quickly changes belt positionsSpindle has positive locking indexing in 10 degree increments for fast, efficient fluting and veining operationsBuilt-in spindle locks let you remove or replace faceplates and chucks with easeLive center has a removable pin for boring through stockCam-lock mechanisms allow adjustments of headstock, tailstock and tool rest base without having to use toolsHollow tailstock allows you to perform long hole boring for lamps and other vesselsSpecial cast-in webbings in legs accept 2 x 4's or a 2 x 12 to construct a solid tool or sandbag shelfTool storage basket conveniently holds chisels and other tools within easy reach of operator
Faceplates have always been regarded as a safe and secure holding method for large turnings such as bowls and platters. The only drawback is that they are a slower mounting method when compared to scroll action chucks. Now, however, you can have the best of both worlds! Nova Faceplate Rings offer the same secure holding power of a faceplate, but you can hold them with your Nova scroll chuck for the ultimate in speed and convenience. Simply screw the faceplate ring to your turning blank, then secure the ring in your chuck. The faceplate rings are available in three sizes for a wide range of workpiece sizes. The size of your faceplate ring should match the size of the jaws on your Nova chuck.Faceplate Rings fit directly into your Teknatool Chuck (matching size of jaws must be mounted on the chuck).No need to remove the chuck from your lathe as you would with traditional faceplate mounting.Fast mounting method for bowl blanks.Best alternative to Woodworm screw mounting, which is only recommended for smaller bowls.Can also be used for moderate off-center multi-axis turning.Faceplate mounting is a strong mounting method, even with irregular sized wood and rough cut surfaces.Specifications:50mm (2") faceplate ring fits 50mm jaws. Faceplate diameter is 3".100mm (4") faceplate ring fits 100mm jaws. Faceplate diameter is 5".130mm (5") faceplate ring fits 130mm jaws, Faceplate diameter is 6-1/4".
This plan is your guide to making a simple, functional and beautiful table. The design is modeled after the original farm table at which Julia Child and her husband Paul ate most of their meals. It is now on display at the Smithsonian where it so fascinated Mario Rodriguez that he created this plan for reproducing a similar version. Dispensing with typical leg-to-apron joinery, the table has shouldered brindle joints that lock the legs to a pair of long aprons to eliminate racking. Three dovetailed cross rails link the apron, along with the H-stretcher system, to make it rock solid. Follow this detailed plan to complete all the steps for turning the legs on a lathe, cutting the stopped dovetail sockets in the aprons, fitting the stretchers, assembling the undercarriage, and applying the final finish.
