I’ll begin with what sounds just right for the small turnings enthusiast, which is the JET JHL-610 Hobby Lathe, which has a 5½" turning radius width and extends to 9¾". It revolves between 100 and 2000rpm and it’s weight belies its look.

    Powerful accessories

    Through their experiences of customer requirements over many yearsJET have many available accessories.

    Should this be your first experience of wood turning, you probably want a few lathe chisels to get you going. Robert Sorby are one of the best tool manufacturers because of their steel quality but you will find less expensive to suit your purse.

    Jet wood lathes are sold through distributors in 25 countries but if there isn't a dealer in your country they will be shipped to you.

    I'd love to see your creations, they might inspire me to do more myself, instead of sitting here writing about them and imagining people are out there making weird and wonderful obelisks. I could do with doing more turning, but these days, I can’t even turn the eye of a woman.

    But send me a photo or message and I'll drool over them (not the women) on this website. You can do this via the Contact Coach or Your Stories in the navigation bar on the left.
