A friend gave me a Jet dust collector model DC-650, Stock #708621. There are no other identifying numbers or letters, and the color is gray. I looked online and all the other Jet machines are white, and are identified as DC-650A, DC-650BK, DC-650CK. Mine is labeled DC-650 only, no letters. Because it is gray I suspect that it is an older model. It has a top bag but no strap to connect it, or upper support bar. The bottom bag is missing. My friend has a pillow case to collect all the dust. I looked online to try and find a owners manual for it to see what parts I would need to get it working again, (I did plug it in to test it and the motor is good and has strong suction), but found nothing that looks like this one. Does anyone have a manual for this that they could E-mail me a copy. Or do you know what parts I might need. I saw a new one online , depending where you shop, for $349.00 – $425.00. Should I try to refurbish it? or just buy a new one?

If the dimensions are correct, you can get a jet pleased filter, or a Wynn filter for the top. Wynn makes a better filter than Jet. Jet makes a fiberglass band that holds in the lower plastic bag for collection. The cloth bags collect the chips but spread the dust. Jet customer service should be able to help.

Many dust collectors are same diameter(s) for bag support rings. Measure your OD & circumference, then search by size. Powertech and others sells several different size band clamps for holding filter/clear bags:

Can also buy generic replacement filter bags if you find Jet asks too much.

+1 Many folks chose to upgrade to Donaldson/Wynn filter .vs. buying replacement bags.
Tons of information available online if you want to make the upgrade.
