JET 1236 Owners - Help Please...

Steve Russell
>Hello,

If you have a JET 1236 lathe, would you please help me to answer a couple of questions regarding your lathe...

1.) What is the distance from the top of the banjo (without the toolrest installed) to the centre of the spindle? This measurement should be taken from the highest point on the banjo where you install the toolrest, to the centre of the MT spindle hole.

2.) What is the diameter of the tool rest post where it inserts into the banjo?

I'm working on making an adapter for a tool holder and need these dimensions. I appreciate any help you can offer. Take care and all the best to you and yours!
