    Hello all from a newbie here in Lincoln

    Hi all I am a very new just bought my first mini lathe a JET Jwl-1221vs 12inch by 24inch Variable Speed Woodturning Lathe with two Nova Chucks. but also a jacobs chuck and an extensive set of Robert Sorby tool rests both straight and curved, long and short as well as the original standard tool rests.
    Plus a Lumberjack UDE65 65L Chip and Dust Extractor a 1400mm band saw table top, but none of it is set up yet as I have to clear a storage room IE: bedroom living in a terraced house we dont have a big rear garden more a small yard. But I am looking forward to starting so I will be asking lots of questions along the way

    Regards

    Ian

    Hi Ian

    Welcome

    I have the same lathe, and find it excellent, perfect for pen makling.
    A very confident machine, well made and reliable.
    Look forward to seeing what you produce with it.

    Any problems just ask, there's a lot of experience on this forum, willingly given.

    Peter

    Hello Ian being as I am old and left school in 1951 some 68 yrs ago sympathies. Lincoln minds me of Sherrifs and Robin Hood, no shortage of twisted old trees etc. Welcome from over here,a place for sharing and fun.

    Peter.

    Hello Ian, welcome to the forum.
    You know your old when your sweetie says "lets go upstairs and make love" and you reply "honey, I can't do both."
