I have a Jet 1442VS wood lathe. This morning I was putting a flute in the lathe and tightening up the tailstock......just pushed the long arm that locks the tailstock in place and the bolt underneath the bed sheared off and now I can't tighten my tailstock down. I don't then I tightened it to much at all....At a first glance I don't see this in the parts list in the manual or really even the tailstock parts period but right now Im in a hurry ( I know its got to be in there) ...Ill have to contact Jet....Has anyone ever had this happen? Do you know of "the" right person to contact ? And is their a way I can lock it down until a part gets here??? Right now I'm in a holding point on lathe work!!!

Can you take the bolt out to see if it is a standard hardware store item?

If you can get it out take it to Home depot or Lowe's as they are open on Sunday.

Thanks Cliff and everybody. I probably could find the bolt but it was attached to a collar that slid and locked the tailstock in place......I will call Jet tomorrow...Thanks !!!
