Hi all, looking to upgrade soon from my shop fox 1704. It treated me well but feel I’ve outgrown it. Looking to go to a 12” to make tad larger bowls then the 1704 can make?

Looking around the $500 range to stay in the table top unit vs a floor model.

Thanks all!

I did the same journey, and chose the 12" Turncrafter.  Been happy with the decision.
