If price alone the deciding factor would choose the Laguna-revo 18/36.

Not sure will see much improovement between 1 ¾ or 1 ½ HP & 2 HP although bigger motor will draw less amps. If don’t have 220V service already not extra cost of lathe worth the effort.

Have the old Jet 16/42 1.5 HP lathe and love it bought mind before price got over $2,000. Mine came with 5 year warranty too and never used it.

While like Jet lathes have own two without a problem might be willing to look elsewhere today.

Would not want rely on any wood lathe manufacturers warranty most involve shipping to repair center at your expense. Optimum word is limited Warranty.

Whatever and whereever you buy check the store or web site policy concerning returns, refunds, and restocking fees.
