    Nova 1624-44 Lathe

    Does anyone on this forum use the Nova 1624-44 lathe? I see Woodcraft has it on sale until Oct. 31 for $849.99. I was thinking about taking the plung....I now use the Jet mini. All feedback welcome.....

    I bought this lathe a month ago from WC. It is my first lathe. I really enjoy using it. For the price it is hard to beat.

    I've not used (or even seen) one, but I've seen a lot of positive comments from owners of that lathe, and don't recall seeing anything negative. I don't think you'll find anything new in that price range that can compete with it. Especially on sale.

    Bruce, I have the Nova 1624-44 lathe and am very happy with it. As Joe said, you can't beat the price. Variable speed would be nice, but for a weekend warrior I couldn't see the xtra $1K for it. Belt changing is easy once you get the hang of it.

    Go for it and enjoy ....... Tony
