    Wow, what a thread. "just a bridgeport copy" is something I hear a dozen times a day. Aside from belts and bearings, I would say about 99% of the Jet is not compatible with Bridgeport parts. Buy...

    I dont recall talking to anyone recently about a cover for a 6F. That is the cost of a new one, however I have dozens of used ones I definitely would part for much less.

    Still, the Ebay one is...

    Hopefully next week I will get more pictures. I ended up needing to modify my Y axis gib and turcite it. The modification came because the gib had no real adjustment. It was basically a capture...

    +1 to Naru. The lead screw can be installed backwards. The longer bearing race on the end goes on the left hand side, the capture side, of the table.
