For Sale: Jet 1642 Lathe $900

It is the model older than the current 1642. It is in great shape; the bed is free of rust and the bearings are great shape. I’m selling it because I’m downsizing to a smaller lathe. It is currently in Canton, but I’m moving to Hull next month. I can send pictures or feel free to contact me with any questions.
