When I was looking at lathes, I talked with many people who had tried and liked either the Jet Mini or the PSI Turncrafter Pro lathe. I could not find many that had used both, to get an idea of the differences between them. Now owning a PSI Turncrafter Pro and having taken a class and used a Jet Mini for 5 hours or so, I decided to summarize the differences.
Both lathes look deceptively similar. The PSI is 4" longer in the bed at 18", vs 14" for the Jet. The Jet also has one higher speed. The first 5 speed ranges seem to be very close. The beds look almost exactly the same, as do the banjo and steadyrest. The tail stock wheel contains a handle (just a steel rod) on the Jet, where the PSI is only a wheel. The handle does make adjusting the tail stock depth faster for far moves. The motor height adjustment is almost exactly the same. (EDIT: After posting this, I found the tailstock handle in the spare belt bag. It actually works a little better than the Jet, so this is...
FIRST LATHE AND NEW TO TURNING WOOD. BOUGHT THE LATHE AFTER MUCH READING AND SEARCHING. A GREAT PRICE, AND THE LATHE WAS SHIPPED ON TIME AND I RECIEVED IT IN GOOD CONDITION. EASY TO SET UP AND THE HEAD AND TAIL STOCK MATCHED UP. HAVE TURNED TWO BOWLS AND THE MACHINE WORKED BETTER THAT EXPECTED, SPEED IS GREAT AND EASY TO USE. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS LATHE TO ANY WOOD TURNER EXPECIALLY A BEGGINER.
Lathe arrived in good shape except the lock for the tool rest was broken. I had a metric bolt the correct size to use in its' place. The lathe works well and am having a ball making wood bowls from native Birch. They are beautiful. Also turned a rolling pin from a glue-up lamination of four different hardwoods. Am really enjoying it.
