Not a bad fix or price. I know the HF lathes has slightly different legs. The Jet has the switch in the left front leg (at least mine does) and I thought I could adapt the HF leg to make it work. I was gifted with this Jet 1236WL. Unfortunately the legs were cut off and some castors were added. The engineering on that job was not too good. that is what you get when an IRS agent does the work….LOL. He is still a great man and a good uncle so I acceppted his lathe along with a trailer load of stuff. I can deal with it. Glad to see you got your machine operating.
