just finished upgrading from a jet 1442 to a 1624 nova
the reason for the upgrade was that i was geting tired of rebuilding the jet .
i have had the jet for almost 3 years and this was going to be the fourth rebuild . yes the jet has a five year warranty but i am just fed up with having to rebuild the reeves drive every six months . this time took it to a jet repair station and they are going to replace every thing in the head stock all pullys, bearings,shaft ,and motor . great service but just tired of fixing it. hope the nova dose better only time will tell . went back to manul belt change as i thought that this will last longer hope that i am right . thanks for leting me rant now back to turning
