    Default Outboard turning on jet 1642

    Hi Gang
    I am interested in doing some oversize turning on my jet 1642 (greater that 500 m/m dia) and was wondering if any has purchased the outrigger setup for the 1642 or better still made one and can give any advice on making your own.

    Cheers

    To grow old is inevitable.... To grow up is optional

    Confidence, the feeling you have before you fully understand the situation.

    What could possibly go wrong.

    Been a while since I saw it but maybe google for it. It was someone had taken an outboard adapter for a Vicmarc (I think) and adapted it to a Jet 1642. Didn't look that difficult, drilled a couple of holes in the legs and I think they had to add a couple of shims and it was done.

    Sorry but I don't have it here.

    GJ, I have done it on my MC1100 and it should be adaptable to your Jet. It hooks into the existing banjo and has floor support.
