As a retiree with a woodworking hobby, I love to make chess sets, salt and pepper shakers, candle sticks, Christmas tree ornaments, checker sets, bowls, toy car wheels, and many other gift items. I find the Jet lathe, listed here, just the right thing for my hobby. The price is affordable for a hobbyist. The machine is lightweight but sturdy. I would rank it above the beginner’s level and perfect for the average part-time woodworker or hobbyist. The six variable speeds give a broad spectrum for the various projects in my woodshop.
