Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nova Lathe Comet II A really nice MIDI lathe plenty of power and lots of accessories
Date published: 2016-07-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nova Lathe I bought this lathe as an upgrade from what I had. I am very happy with the product. It has all the power I need and seems to be well built. The only problem I have is this. When it arrived the casting was cracked. It does not affect the use of the lathe and I needed it so I kept it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the reverse This is my first lathe , I looked around for awhile and decided to buy the Nova for the reason of the variable speed and the reverse features. plus it came with the G3 nova chuck. I have turned pens and knobs so far and looking. forward to trying to turn bowls. I seen others out there with similar features but read the reviews and found that Nova had great customer service, i did have a slight problem with vibration and Nova helped me with it now it runs smooth. Great lathe.
