I bought a new to Me Jet mill that is Bridgeport sized. Anything to look out for. For a '98 model it seems to be lightly used, .015 backlash on both axis. Need a manual it is a JVM 942K. 8 speed step pulley machine.

I do not see any pictures, no pictures must mean it is a figment of the imagination.

Well, nice find I hope.

Will post when installation starts. Price- drool worthy. Waited 5 hours at an auction of a life time for it to come up.

Wait that is from 2008, or did the camera reset. It almost looks like you need a wider door. or you can keep it at my place.

Being copied from Bridgeport and jet import , it's probably a much better then some newer models. Jet tries to stand behind there machines and tools. If you got this for under $2k you did well by the sound of the backlash. Good luck

Camera reset. AHEM $700,sounded right. Trying to decide between upgrading a 2 hp pony motor to a 5hp laying around to run the 2 HP mill, or really upgrading and getting a Vfd.
