Thank you so much Jeffrey for the info! It is now 2020 and I am wanting to upgrade my older Jet 1100-c to a Vortex cone. I found the kit for around $38 bucks, no tax and free shipping. Yours is the only post I have found about doing it and if it helps. Much appreciate that you took the time way back in 2014 hope you are still at it enjoying woodworking!
