I haven’t seen a lot of review content on this lathe, much less a video so I stumbled through a presentation of my thoughts on it.
While it isn’t perfect I think Jet is delivering good value for the money on this product, i.e. you’re getting what you pay for.
I’ve gotten into roasting with a Turbo Oven and so far have tried two different popper bases: Presto Popper and the Stir Crazy. I tried the Presto first because it has a metal motor shaft; I wanted to avoid the trouble of replacing the plastic one on the Stir Crazy.
Well it turns out that the despite its plastic shaft the Stir Crazy is a better choice because it turns faster and has a better-designed tray. See the video for detail on that as well as a demo of the two poppers stirring beans.
