First let me start by thanking everyone here as I have received some good information by just reading the posts. I am now looking at a Jet GH 1340W or 1440W lathe and have read all the old post. My question is there any new or updated information that you could pass along about this machine. Thanks again.

I bought a Jet GH1340W-1 last December from The Carbide Store via the internet for under $4900, and got free shipping. Check out their website -

Can't comment on how this machine compares to other like-sized lathes, as this is the one I'm learning on.

I have the JET GHB-1340 lathe
(medium duty). Bought it new 6 years ago. It has served me vary well.
