I finally got my Nova DVR XP. For those who didn't see my earlier post, I'd put it on lay-a-way at the local Woodcraft due to some sweet discount pricing. I bought the lathe, the swing away hinge, the extension bed, and a Super Nova2 chuck. I haven't attached the swing away nor the extension bed yet, but that will likely occur in the next couple of days. I just had to get the lathe up and making some kind of curlies. I couldn't wait. It's amazing how smooth this baby is. After I got the lathe, a buddy of mine mentioned he had a brand new stand for his 1624 and didn't need it. I took him up on his offer and got it for a steal. Now if I can get the layout in my shop (read garage) right I'll be set. I guess having some time to use it might help, too.
