I Get Email #9 – Benchtop Lathe Size

I get email. I get a lot of email. Some of which can be beneficial to a larger audience so I had the idea to create a simple, informal video series to answer those questions on a regular basis. Check out the video above to view today’s topic.

I also thought it would be fun to bring along a good friend of mine Shawn Stone of Stone and Sons. If you haven’t already, check out his website.

Links mentioned in video:

  • Shawn’s Turncrafter lathe: http://amzn.to/2ym9GL8
  • My lathe is a Jet 1014vs. It’s an older model that isn’t available anymore, from my brief search.


  1. I agree with you guys, my lathe gets used for anything which requires a spindle or a circular component.
    Unless you are a craft worker selling bowls or platters a small swing lathe is sufficient.

  2. Hi’
    A while back do did a show on chisel or file ferrules.
    Do you still have that info on the manufacture ?
