I couldn't begin to tell you what the normal amount of play is, but yes the slop in the handles can be greatly reduced (but not eliminated) through gib adjustment

He says yup. Good guess.
Or (marked in green) you could tighten the ways allot. I'd recommend swapping out the flat screws for some allen head caps. That may also work
After talking with Peter a bit, I realized that I was mis-visualizing how the gib adjustment actually worked. Now that I realize that the adjustment bar is tapered longitudinally, and that the slotted screw head moves that bar in and out, it makes sense (finally).

Thanks for your help.

I don't think any parts are available. I called Jet and was referred to another outfit in California for "obsolete parts". I called them, got voicemail, left my number and never heard from them.

If you can identify the parts you need in the Jet-16 Operator/Parts Manual, maybe I can offer some advice.

Ouch.

Well, for the lead screw, my best advice would be to go aftermarket. Lead screw material and half-nuts are readily available in non-proprietary formats. While I am obviously no expert (you will know that if you've read the beginning of this thread), I have read around the forums and learned that much.

For the gib bar and adj. screw, you might have better luck than I did, when I was trying to buy handwheels. Here's all the info I have:

Jet is
WMH Tool Group
800.274.6848


I spoke with a "Cynthia" who emailed me the manual you saw above. When I wanted to obtain availability on parts, she sent me to a "Steve in Tech.", who sent me to this place that is supposed to handle obsolete Jet parts:

Machine Tools Direct
800.875.2843


I left a voicemail with a "Rob" on 24-Aug-07, and never heard a word from them. That's where my research ended, because I don't have a crying need for the parts on my Jet-16 yet.

Perhaps with more persistence, your parts might be found there.

Al S.

I have been looking around, at the new Jet Milling Machine manuals. If you look at the JMD-18 Manual, The table and the base look a lot like the jet 16. I m planning going up to grizzly and talk to them next week. I have been told the gib strips are all made by the same company. I made up a gib adjustment screw, one of my task are complete. Thanks for your input. gk

I did the same thing: I thought that the handwheels looked similar on the newer Jet Mill-Drill. When I mentioned this possibility to the Tech at Jet, he was quick to say that others had tried that and they don't work. Later, some information I got somewhere else confirmed that.

Grizzly is fun to visit. It's a bit of a drive from where you are, but if you have half a day, it's not a bad drive. I drove there the day after Thanksgiving to buy a boring head.

For my part, I haven't even tried to find parts for my Jet-16 since this time last year. And I haven't made new handwheels yet either -- it ain't on fire, I'm not looking for more work!

If you are successful in finding new, surplus, or used Jet Mill/Drill parts, please let us know!
