Yes, Jet knows. If they're identical then they'll have identical part numbers.
Call the Jet parts desk at 1-800-274-6848 extension 5279, and ask them. Don't be
put off by them answering WMH Group or something, it's still Jet.
Welllllllll...maybe they will ..and maybe they wont.
Ask Leigh at MarMachine about Jet and drillpress parts..prticularly
quill parts with identical part numbers.....

Thanks for the tip. I'll call them and actually have I've spoken to them a
few times in the past about their mill/drill machines. To be honest, except
for Delta (and another lesser known company called Summit), I haven't found
a manufacturer who knows the measurements of their units down to .001" or
publishes the actual data in their parts lists. For instance, many of the
companies list parts as being "Quill, 3.25" when they are foreign made and
actually 82MM, etc. I usually wind up on the phone with someone who pulls
out the same brochure I'm staring at and then proceeds to recite the data
back to me that I just read to them and asked questions about.

Well, of course. I am assuming that if they are the precisely identical part
then they will have identical part numbers, so all they have to do is compare
the exploded parts diagrams. If the numbers are identical, then they are very
likely the same part. If not, they might be and might not be.
Unfortunately, the model numbers are similar, but the machines are
significantly different... I've got the ear of a technical guy there who
is hopefully going to pull the parts off the shelf and measure them for me.
