Extend the turning capacity of your Jet JWL-1015 lathe (e.g. 47681, sold separately) from 15-1/2" to 36-1/2" with the JWL-1015 Bed Extension. The bed extension is built of the same heavy-duty cast iron as the lathe is, which means it soaks up vibration for extremely stable turning. Once the extension is attached, the lathe has a three-legged configuration which translates into excellent rigidity and resistance to sagging.Features:Increases distance between centers from 15-1/2" to 36-1/2".Heavy-duty cast iron construction for stability and less vibration.Once extension is installed, one leg of the 1015 lathe becomes a center leg, providing excellent support for the bed.
