Introducing the Shop Fox W1836, a 12" x 15" Benchtop Wood Lathe that caters to the preferences of woodturners with its array of features. Powered by a robust 3/4 HP motor, equipped with electronic variable-speed spindle control, and complemented by a digital RPM readout for precision, this lathe stands out as a top-tier choice.

Facilitating evenly spaced cuts are the 24 indexes, set in 15° increments, allowing new creative possibilities while keeping the headstock securely locked—a feature uncommon in most benchtop lathes. The lathe's stability and smooth turning operations are enhanced by its heavy-duty cast-iron construction and rubber feet.

Backed by a 2-year warranty covering parts and ensuring freedom from factory defects (excluding consumables), the W1836 aligns with the quality standards of all Shop Fox benchtop machines. The U.S.-based Technical Documentation Department has meticulously crafted the comprehensive manual, aiding in easy assembly and maintenance of the lathe.

Your machine comes with a comprehensive, easy to follow manual written by the Woodstock HQ documentation department right here in the USA.
