The four contenders are the JML 1014i from Jet Tools, the Shop fox W1704, the Rikon 70-100 and the TCL10VS Commander from PSI. Also a good choice, this lathe from PSI has a great feature set, including a variable speed motor with a display, 24 position index head and worklight. Jet has a reputation for quality lathes and this one is no different, however you pay a price for the brand.
With a range of innovative solutions, this mini lathe machine will serve you working on a wide variety of woodwork projects. Stability is key when working with a lathe, as you are likely to want to shape the piece of wood you are working with to be as smooth as possible. The lathe machine comes with indexing capabilities that let you perform tasks like fluting and veining in no time.
A very functional, easy-to use and affordable lathe machine, this product should serve you well in the workshop.
We’ll look at four lathes from different manufacturers and compare them in terms of size and weight, motor, features and price. These are four of the most popular small wood lathes on the market and they’ve all got a lot going for them. The speeds range from 500RPM to 3975 RPM, allowing you to manipulate the piece of wood really as you need it.
The heavy-duty cast-iron lathe bed of this machine reduces stability and wobbling to a minimum. Didn’t take the number one spot based on the smaller swing and slightly lower review scores than the Rikon.
The shop fox comes in at almost half the price of the other tools on this list and has a great feature set for a cheap wood lathe. This lathe machine will allow you to bore holes through wood using its live center and its hollow tailstock. Such a function comes handy when you are carving out a wooden lampstand or perhaps a wooden cup. The faceplates that hold the wood in place along with additional accessories can be removed quickly and easily as needed, saving you time and energy.
