Here are some pics of my JET lathe.
Also, I stopped by HF tonight on the way home and had a look at their lathes. I am not trying to put anybody else's lathes down, and I cant vouch for the currently mfr JET lathes, but I can say without a doubt that this 1992 13x40 JET is nicer in a lot of little ways. Having said that, I also think that the 12x36 HF had on the floor would make a perfectly good gunsmith lathe. And the nice thing about getting it from HF is that you can pick it up. Shipping/receiving on mine was a PITA.
Just trying to call um as I see um.
