I can't say about that mill, but a cast in (and not stamped) large M indicates a Meehanite type of cast iron was used. And at least on all the mills I've seen it on including mine that large M is always located above the Knee's Z axis way's.

Does anybody know where I may be able to purchase a manual for a 1980 JET JVM-626 vertical bench mill. I’ve been online the last week or so and have found nothing. JET Corp. was no help.
One other thing, I’m looking for a print or design of a 4”-6” riser for this mill. Can anyone help me out.

Your post is old, but it came up while I was researching the mill I just got - I've got the manual, can make a copy if you still need it.
Wow! That's great. I too have this mill and was not able to find a manual for it. Of course I would be willing to pay for your time, materials and postage if I could obtain a copy? Thanks. Lou.
I'll try to get it scanned into a PDF and post it... Nudge me if I don't get back in a week or so!
Is it spring yet???
