SOURCE: I need a manual for
I have the lathe and got a manual emailed to me from the jet people since it doesn't show on their web page. I just called them off the contact us link.

If you need an owners manual for ANY lathe, you have no business operating it in the first place.
Don't hurt yourself or others.

I just got the same lathe from my dad yesterday, without the spur center or center cup. I just found that Harbor Freight sells a Jacobs keyed chuck for $10 (part number 45731 ), which accepts up to a 1/2" shank. You can then use a #2MT live center, which is exponentially more common now than the 1/2"-20.

Not sure what was happening when the previous reply was created, but the owners manual is part number 211260001 $7.99 at SearsPartsDirect.com
That said, I'm staring at my own copy of the the owners manual and I can't really see why you would want to pay for one. The only really useful information is the parts diagram which is online at SearsPartsDirect.com. The rest is generic grinder information (support workpiece, select proper wheel, etc.) and CYA (always wear gloves and eye protection, don't remopve safety guards, don't use damaged wheels, don't stick your finger in the light socket, don't cross the steet in the middle of the block, etc.)
