The lathe should come with one unless it was bought with the understanding that it did not have one.  Anyway to answer your question, look at the top of this page and you will see heading that says 'Yellow Pages"  click on it and it will give you links to all kinds of businesses.  My favorites tend to be

There is a wood craft store in OKC but it is on the far northern part of the city. 

hope this helps

WOOT WOOT!!! you guys ROCK!!!



i also understand that this is something that can possibly be fabricated for cheaper??? i do have a couple of friends with these abilities, as long as it's not anything too crazy, like casting dies or something...


and yes, it would be a used lathe in wich, the original tool rest was broken.

Gil,  I can see his next question already.   Undecided

    "What's a Banjo?" ???

A banjo is what the tool rest rests in, that clamps down on the bed of the lathe like the tailstock.

Yes, but Junior needs to discount that lathe a lot if the banjo is missing, the banjos are costly.

junior, if you have access to folks who are machinists, here's a few links to follow that show some shop built tool rests:

go down about 2/3 of the way to see a photo of a shop built tool rest

this is a thread on tool rests, give it a read

this is Jeff Jilligs gallery, which shows a bunch of home made tool rests.

As you can see, these are not difficult to make if you have the right tools.

hope this helps.

junior:  Ebay has several, most are "Shop Smith"  however there was one that was 6". The post is 7/8. Most Jet banjos use a 1" post. So if you have the orginal "JET" banjo you will want to be sure the post is 1".  Also the local club is a good place to look or get the word out.
Here's the link to the ebay item....

Hey Junior,  I actually have an extra tool rest I'd be willing to part with, possibly in trade.  It's one of the T-bar round tool rests that CS and WC sells.  1" post, threaded at the top so you can use different length tool supports.  I bought it for my last lathe and the post is an inch too short for my PM, but should fit the Jet nicely.  I'll try and post a picture tonight.
