It fits also on other blender bases like Vita Mix, JTC OMNI blenders, and on Blendtec blenders subject to replacing blade assembly for correctly fitting cutting unit. The Vitamix, Omni, and Waring motors turn counterclockwise and the gear size is larger while Blendtec turns clockwise and the gear needs to be thinner.
Note, for longer lasting blade bearings, keep out of dishwasher and hand-wash only, hand-dry. Make sure the bottom plate retaining nut stays hand-tight at all times to prevent damage to the jar. The Alterna jar sits on Waring / Omni / Vitamix type blenders 45 degrees perpendicular like in this picture:
