Greetings all; New member here.. perhaps you folks could give me some advice:
I’ve got a Jet JCS-10… anyone have any idea where I might be able to get parts for it?
Also curious if any of its trunium parts are shared with other models?

Many thanks everyone.

Here is a link to Jet’s service page where you can find service centers and shop for parts. I don’t know of anyone besides the manufacturer that carries a wide range of parts for machines.

Hi Tom; thanks. I sure Hope I can get this old saw running again. It looks like a pretty solid saw I see a couple of old posts about the machine…

I’ve had great fun this weekend. I took my parts over to my machinist buddy and we broke down the saw. My prior experience being with relativley light weight craftsman saws, I was impressed by the generally stout build of the saw. On looking at the arbor closely, I don’t like the way the fixed bearing is loosely located, between a retainer clip and a few spring washers. I note other JET models have addresses this issue and also sport a spacer between the bearings, so that the shaft nut can be properly torqued, so we mad a spacer to keep the bearings at a fixed length.
In looking over the arbor we found the flange to have about 3thou run out which we faced off. The shaft itself was straight. I pressed a new bearing on to the arbor, seated against its land and found it had a hug runout. We figured that the bearing was against all odds crazy defective, but ultimately discovered that the land/collar against which the bearing seated was out of square by .0015. This is a huge issue, beging so close to the shaft center and it translated to .005 at the perimeter of the bearing. A very noticable wobble. took the bearing off, faced that land, bearing back on, and all was well. we found the arbor bracket hinge shaft had been badly mushroomed so we cleaned it up.
we also note that the stock pulley on the arbor shaft had had considerable wobble. I think because the fit between the pulley and shaft is fairly sloppy Ideas on better pulleys to use or a way to repair the fit problem?

I think this is our final issue before reassembly time, I’m anxious to the see the saw run, I’m better sure it will be better than new.
regards, to all

Oh yeah. Very nice. Ultimately shimmed the pulley and then re-machined it concentric. The pulley was wallowed out anyway; a bit excessive, but hey I was standing in front of a lathe (when you only have a hammer everything looks like a…)
I noticed a typo in my earlier post… In case you all thoughtt I was obsessive beyond comprehension, that bearing land wasn’t off by 1.5 thousanths, it was actually off by 15 thousandths, which would be an easy 1/10” at the blade perimeter.

anyway all back together wax and lithium grease for lubes. Had a hard time squaring the trunion to the saw, still not quite right, but close. Runout on the blade, absolutely zip. vibration somewhere between low and zero. this was totally worth it…
