NEW JET Tailstock Swing Away easily clears wood lathe bed for end-turning

719001_JET Swing AwayLa Vergne, TN – The new JET® Tailstock Swing Away eliminates the need for heavy lifting to remove the tailstock for turning work pieces off the end of a woodworking lathe. The handy accessory is designed to fit the new JET 16” x 40” Electronic Variable Speed Woodworking Lathe (JWL-1640EVS), as well as JET 1440VS, 1442VS and 1642EVS lathe models.

“The new JET Tailstock Swing Away quickly and easily clears the lathe bed to make room for end-turning operations,” said Katie Davidson, JET’s Product Manager.

With the tailstock locked on the swing away, simply loosen a knob and lower the tailstock out of the way. The tailstock can be replaced by swinging it back into position on the bed and tightening the knob. The JET Tailstock Swing Away will not interfere with a bed extension mounted in the lower position.
