Re: [mill_drill] RE: Here is a Deal
- I think mine – see photo section Scott’s Mill-Drill – is similar to the Jet-16. I am out of the country at the moment and will return this weekend. I’ll post the sizes on the belts I have at that time.Best regards,Scott
I've looked around, and have not been able to find much detailed information about these mills. About the only way I can think of would be to take the belts off and measure them. I might be able to pull it apart later this week.

Not to I recently got one of these and need to know the belt size to use on it. Anyone know what it is? Jet 16 with MT3 is what I have.

I have this exact same machine including the MT3 spindle. I like it a lot. My lathe also has a MT3 taper in the headshaft, so with one set of MT3 colletts I can quickly and easily move work between the two machines. I all depends on what you do and how you do it. "Yuk"????? LOL

- A month or two ago I stumbled on a pretty good Craigslist deal on new "scratch and dent" Jet JMD-18 mills.
MSRP for this mill (which includes a stand, runs on 110 or 220 single phase, and has an R-8 spindle) is about $3100. The CL price for these mills is around $1500. I called him, and he says he's the central repository for all Jet scratch-and-dent merchandise. He's located in Auburn, WA. The original CL listing I saw is now gone, but he has a new one up:
You can find him by going to the Seattle Craigslist and either searching for "Jet JMD-18 Auburn," or simply "Jet mill." If he has one, it will show up. Alternatively, you can call him at 253-804-3211 or go to the company's website:
NOTE - though his website mentions "No BS shipping," that is, free shipping on orders over $250, the CL ads say the items/prices are for pickup only.
Might be worth considering, if you live within driving distance of the Seattle area...
