Here is a brief history of JET Note the colors through history.

I’ve flipped tools for years, and along the way I have had a BUNCH of the Jet in blue. Until 5 years ago, I could call for parts on them, and get something most of the time. Since then I have gotten away from swapping tools part time, and Jet and Powermatic have gone through some ownership changes, so I can’t promise parts availability anymore.

If you can read a model number poke it in right here I’m pretty sure between 5 years ago, and now they would have to be really slow if they lost all of that digital info. The fact the page is still there tells me the info is too. You can get a manual, and with that can fix most things you can get parts for. Plus it will tell you what they called the part, and it’s number, which could help immensely if you need something.

Open it up as much as you can to clean EVERYTHING before you get all crazy and start running wood through it. MOST IMPORTANT on a tool of that age is to completely drain the gear oil, and put in new. Sharpen knives. reassemble slowly, and the manual could help here, some parts are tightened to a tolerance, and the manual will help in that. Give their numbers a try, it will tell you up front what you can still expect.

Might look over at Old Woodworking tools, www.owwm.org/

And

Vintage Machinery vintagemachinery.org/

It will help there if you can find the model number. Great likelihood that someone has done the re-build before you and they do a great job of pic taking, and text so you can follow their journey.

Good luck with it, and enjoy the journey.

The is great information. I am still deciding if I want to purchase it. Seller wants $400.00, but i think that might be too much.
