Best Rated Mini Lathe 2020 -- JET JML 1014VSI Review

This JML 1014VSI lathe is a great variable speed mini-lathe that is made by a solid and respectable company called JET.

Just keep in mind that with a mini-lathe like this, you won't be able to take on the really big projects. Be aware of the limitations due to its size, and you'll do fine. Also, because it's not a full size lathe, it's within most peoples budgets. But don't count it out just because it's not a full-size model. You can accomplish a lot with it. From rough turning to finish polishing, it can be done with a mini-lathe.
