jet 1236 index pins

Stephen
>Hi All,

I bought a second hand 1236 that I am tinkering/learning on. (I am learning that I probably should have known more about the lathe before I purchased.) It did not come with the index pins. I looked on the jet site, and I can purchase them for about a dollar a piece with a whopping twenty dollar shipping fee.

I am going to look locally, but do you have any advice on whether an appropriately sized and threaded bolt would accomplish the same thing? Any help on those dimensions?

Thanks, Stephen
