If the bed is the same I’m guessing the headstock (you’d also need the taller tailstock) from a Jet 1642 would be a direct swap. Most of the lathes I’ve seen modified for electronic speed control have had a 3 phase motor and a vsr to control it. Whether there’s something that would adapt to yours, I don’t know.
