Call Grizzly in the morning. They are very helpful there everytime I needed a part or something.

You might try asking Grizzly, but honestly there is not much in Asian machine manuals other than a bare bones wiring diagram and a parts list. If you are looking for instructions on how to run and maintain the machine, there's no factory manual for that.

I'm about 99% positive that Grizzly never had the manual for that lathe on their website...ever. I have a huge collection of their manuals including ones from 2006. I will ask someone about it when I go to Grizzly this week.

I'm there practically every week :D

Grizzly tech have been very helpful for me, I have the gunsmiths lathe and the matching mill. The mill had been moved for a branch of GE getting into and back out of the solar collector racket by an inept Denver rigging gang. They cut the wires connecting things in multitude of places and not where it was easy to splice. Grizzly tech sent me full diagrams for both as the lathe had some relay and stop switch problems. suggest you contact them and have a chat with them!

There's a Jet with that number series and PDF manual here: http://www.jettools.com/us/en/p/gh-1860zx-with-newall-dp700-dro-with-taper-attachment/321452 if it's close enough to yours.

There's a spec sheet on the G5962 here: https://www.manualslib.com/brand/grizzly/lathe.html

Another spec sheet:http://www.bobsmanuals.com/Home_Improvement/Tools/Grizzly/G5962/manual/download/
