Topic tags/keywords: drill depth stop

So picked up a JDP 17MF pretty cheap, missing depth stop, table handle, and one of the handles which does not seem replaceable as the hole is stripped.

Also, the spring tension for quill return appears to be shot, haven’t tried adjusting it yet.

Anyway, Jet rapes you on parts, but this press seems awful similiar to Grizzly who seems more reasonable on parts.

Anyone try using Grizzly parts on a Jet drill? Anyone perform similiar repairs, replacements?

They have had parts for my DW 788 and for my Skill 3320 Drill press both at at least semi-reasonable prices.

Thanks, I have used them before and they are a decent source. The big problem is that Jet parts across the board are 50-100%+ more than Grizzly, but the units look fairly identical.

Jet parts to rehab my press: 119.75, similar grizzly parts 63.75.

I did notice that some of the Jet parts are noted as Powermatic parts, and a big disparity is that Jet charges 3-4 dollars for nuts and set screws.

Definitely sours me a little on buying Jet in the future, even the belts are 3x the cost
