Ideal for pen turning and small projects.

The Shop Fox W1704 Wood Lathe is the benchtop model that pen turners and miniature hobbyists demand.

The variable-speed spindle easily adjusts between 750-3200 RPM with the twist of a dial.

The T32536 features cast-iron construction for stability, a 5-3/4" faceplate, 8" of swing over the bed, and 13" of distance between centers.

This lathe includes interchangeable 4-1/4" and 7" tool rests. Either tool rest will lock into a sturdy, quick-adjust base to maximize support where cutting occurs and minimizes leverage when in use.

Extra-large knurled spindle and tailstock knobs help provide an ergonomic grip for manually rotating your workpiece and changing out centers.

Like all Shop Fox lathes, the W1704 comes with a 2-year warranty covering parts and assuring the unit is free from factory defects.

The W1704 manual was written by our U.S. based Documentation Department is packed with useful information.

The Woodstock Technical Support team is U.S. based. Parts for the lathe may be available online and shipped from the Woodstock parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
