    Taking 1/4” off a 3/8” round is a bit hairy, even on a band saw. Angled ramp as mentioned helps, and I’ve also rigged a dust collector fitting with coarse screen that I use at times to suck the off...

    If it was a stock Dayton motor, i could see Jet (or really, any manufacturer) not stocking the replacement. You might start with Dayton or one of their distributors like Grainger or McMaster-Carr. ...

    My first thought was a short bolt of each size epoxied to a board and screw them to it—then I realized that adding a nut of each size and you’d have a shop made version of the boards I’ve seen...
