    Is this good???

    I just got my WoodCraft drool sheet.

    E-mail special - Now thru October 29, 2007 - purchase Nova 1624-44 Wood Lathe and get a free 20" bed segment.

    Don, I'm sure Stu amd Bernie will chime in shortly, as they have does Jay now that I think of it.....but I'd say it's a good deal!

    Thanks Jeff
    I'm not looking to get one. I have the Jet Mini to start out with.
    I thought maybe some folks would like to see this.

    It is a belt change for speeds.

    That lathe has been well-received by the reviewers. The bed extension
    tossed in for free sweetens the deal. As Frank mentioned, the speed changes on this lathe are done with the belt, but it's still said to be a great lathe
    in its price range.

    Don, I have the belt drive version Nova 1624-44. It's a great machine. I picked mine up 3 months used in brand new shape from a gentleman in Tampa for a steal deal. I don't have the bed extension, but do have the outboard tool rest.
