    cheap upgrade for Jet mini

    I got tired of the chrome plated twig on the handwheel for the tailstock. I stopped at Grainger on the way to work and got a swivel handle for $7.90 on close out. Same 1/4-20 threads and much easier to work with. I had worn the chrome off the factory one and was working my way through the copper flashing. Part #1X536 if anyone is interested.

    Thank you Dale. That sounds like a sturdy replacement, adds years to your use of this fine machine. (Dale replaced the part labeled 62 in this picture.)
