    Nova Lathe

    Don't know if anyone saw it but I got my Woodcraft flyer today. The Nova DVR XP is $1699 and the Nova 1624 is $899. It did say limited quantities at these prices. I bought the Triton Spindle sander.

    Holy Cow!! If they had done that when I was buying I wouldn't be changing belts now!!

    Bernie, did you post this on that other forum where the guy is trying to decide between a Nova 1624 and a Jet 1644?

    Yes I did Paul. I even PM'd him. You can't beat it. That is cheaper by $200 than when I got mine 2 yrs. ago.
