Does anyone own the Shop Fox W1758, I have heard they are good, also I have heard that they can be found for under $500.00 including shipping. Hope someone can help me.

If you are looking for folks to help you out with something called brooks102 then you have chosen a good thread topic. If you're looking for help with something else, that's not a terrific thread topic.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Brooks welcome to the forum. I don't directly have any experience with the shop fox although I know there are a few guys on here who have the Grizzly lathe that is very similar. Hopefully one of them will lend some wisdom.

I know there are mixed reviews on lathes from the Grizzly family (includes Shop Fox). But it is hard to argue with the price and features they have.

Good luck,
