This is what is being said about the W1752 over at Amazon.
This is a very solid, rigid lathe that will help you turn out some very good work. If you’re looking for chisels and knives to go with this great machinery, have a look at Wood Turning Tools from Amazon.

“I totally agree with the first reviewer. (Except there is no first reviewer)This lathe is every bit as good as the JET series in its class at half the price. Turned a pen this evening and it was so nice to do on a smooth running quite lathe. I also purchased a Baracuda chuck but have not used it yet. I’m thinking that this must be SHOP FOX’s well kept secret. Better jump on this before they realize what they have here.”

“Pretty darn good lathe. Especially for the price. I’m with the majority here. I think it’s every bit as good as my previous Jet, and even better as it handles 15″ material with ease, and with the extension bed (a must-have item, IMO) stretches it out to an unbelievable 38 inches.
I checked out the welds on my tool rest, etc., and can find no evidence of breaking or cracking. The belt is snug and very smooth (previous reviewer: did you loosen the belt tension lock knob and snug up the belt?). It’s quiet and does an excellent job for me.
Price and free shipping! I recommend this W1752 to anyone who needs a mini-lathe.”
