Have fun making shavings.

Jallan...Looks like a great, and very heavily built midi lathe! My first lathe was the 12X16VS model and loved it! Wish they had built this model before I bought my Jet 1221VS or I would have purchased the Rikon instead since I was so pleased with it! Now let's see a few photos and postings of your latest turnings! Safe turning to you always!

That's an interesting pen mandrel setup on that lathe. How is the 'rod' attached to the headstock?
I was able to play around on one of those at my Woodcraft store, and the VSC worked excellently, I actually think that this is a really good 'version' of the Jet 1221VS, for a lower price.

Don, It is a screw on Mandrel and the end of the Mandrel shaft fits into the open end of the Mandrel Saver Tailstock Center. All are from PSI. Lathe from Woodcraft. Hope that ans. your question
