dating a mini

Carol - now in NC Nebraska
>Any way to determine the age of a Jet mini lathe? IS there a serial number or something somewhere? And a cypher for the serial number?

The reason is that I emailed a fellow about a rotary adapter for vacuum chucking and he said Jet mini's are problematic, especially the older ones. I already know I have an older one because it was not milled/drilled for the bed extension.

So how do I determine how many birthday candles my baby lathe deserves?
