Re: Jet 1236P

I asked a similar question, and have searched all over the interwebs, and found nothing. Your best option is to use the manual as a guide, and just take a stab at it yourself. If you are careful, keep good records of what you pull from where, and don't get in a hurry, you should be ok. One good thin...

Re: Jet 1236P

Thanks for the follow-up guys. I finally just gave up and jumped in. I drove out the shaft with a little more force than I was comfortable with, and it popped out, taking the sealed right side bearing with it. From there, it was a simple matter of pulling off all the gears, identifying the mangled o...

Re: Jet 1236P

Thanks for the suggestions John, but I'm not really looking for a trial and error method. I'm hoping someone here might have performed this very task, and can state with certainty the proper way to disassemble the gearbox without damaging (or losing) anything. This lathe is the pride of my shop (sad...

Re: Jet 1236P

Ok, here are the photos of the gearbox, and the mangled gear in question. It's a little hard to see with all the gunk in the way, but it's the small gear to the left of the center divider with the ground wire (is that what that is?) that's bad off. The right side of the case has a snap ring, but I d...

Re: Jet 1236P

I meant no slight on the awesomeness of the board or the technical capabilities of its users. My comment was that it's 'odd' to find a message board with much of any restrictions on file dimensions these days. There usually are file size limits, especially in aggregate, but that's about it. It's no ...

Re: Jet 1236P

I feel fairly confident I could replace the gear...if I could figure out how to get to it. I figured you guys who have this lathe would maybe know how to get the gear train apart. I'll see if I can figure out how to transfer the photos from my phone to the computer. I also see that this forum has a ...

Re: Jet 1236P

Hi folks! Sorry to dig up this older thread, but I have a 1236PS as well, and since you guys seem to understand this machine pretty thoroughly, I figured you might be able to help me out. I can post my own thread if that would be better, but I'm a fan of keeping boards uncluttered and topics grouped...
