Harold,
The Jet is an incredible machine and for $175.00 I don’t think you can do better. I believe these sell for around $1800.00 new but I cannot remember as it has been many years since I looked it up. I looks like it is in the size range for your parts and if I were in your situation I would buy it immediately. Once it is sold another one may not come up at that price for many years. The worst case scenerio for this machine is if was used for drilling EDM carbon in an injection mold shop, it will be covered with carbon dust. This can be cleaned off and if necessary, the bearings can be replaced. Don’t worry, the bearings are probably fine and if not can be replaced at a fairly reasonable cost. I have done this many times on machinery. I do not think you can go wrong at this price.
