Besides the option we covered already, I would definitely have a look at the M1015 by Shop Fox and the M1049 by Shop Fox. Both Shop Fox and Shop Fox are thought to be some of the best suppliers of premium Lathes. both of these particular options received fantastic user ratings also. The M1015 advertises a rating of 3.1/5 when contrasted against the 4.1/5 star rating given to the M1049 by Shop Fox.

The Shop Fox M1015 comes with a couple of features you might not get on other similar Metal Lathe. For example 4 hex wrenches, 100-2000 RPM spindle speed:. The M1049 by Shop Fox by comparison, is very competitive offering Six-speed lathe for a wide range of projects and even Speeds from 130-2,000 RPM.

Either of these couple choices make a superb choice if you're in the market for Shop Fox Lathes
