    Jet sells parts directly at: Jet Parts Store

    I would check there first to get their list price and then do some Googling and see if you can find better pricing elsewhere.

    If I remember correctly, I removed the assembly as a unit from the housing and then removed the pin, which is straight, not tapered, but mine was a 13" SB.

    Does any tooling, vise, DRO, etc. come with it? These items can add up fast $$$. $1000 for a rusty, naked machine would be high priced in my area (western NY).

    Keep in mind that if you have the spindle in neutral the brake will not hold at all. It has to be in either Hi or Low range.
