Great Machine, No service

July 20, 2011
from Iowa
I felt this was a great product until I needed repair parts.
This lathe has a pair of plastic gears in the head stock. They have been stripped in ours and I am trying to get replacements. I placed an order on July 30 for the gears and am being told that I will not recieve the part until September 11 and then only if the supplier confirms delivery on the date Jet currently has in their computer system. I have the option of paying air freight of $52.50 and then it will only take 1 month from today to get the parts (it is now July 19).
