Question need spur center for Jet

I picked up a 1995 Jet 1236 lathe. It is missing the spur center and the Jet web site does not seem to sell the part. JWL1236-02 on diagram. I'm thinking this may be a generic part and that it's simply a Morse center, but which one and where can I find one? I believe there are 4 different Morse type centers. This is my first lathe, please excuse my lack of knowlege, but what the heck, that's why I cam to this site.

The 1236 has a MT-2 headstock, so you should be able to go to a website such as http://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/store/catalog?Args= and find a spur center for your lathe. It also has a 1"-8 tpi headstock thread if you are wanting to buy a chuck or a faceplate.

Don't be afraid to ask questions here, this is a great place for answers.

All you need to know is the Morse taper size, probably a #2 on a lathe that size. You can get one at any woodworking retailer that sells lathe equipment. Or here's a link:

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
