I’d like to upgrade from a Shop Fox 1752 10” lathe to the 1758 16×43” lathe. Does anyone have experience on it? I like the small lathe, just need something larger to turn canes in one piece. Thanks in advance. OH, yep, I know all about the Jets, but Jet doesn’t know about the size of my wallet. Shop Fox seems to have an idea ;)
