This machine is solid, quiet, and powerful.

I have been turning for about five years, after woodworking for decades. I started out with a delta 12" lathe that I found on Craig's List. It was old, but good. More out of curiosity than anything else, I wanted to upgrade. I found another good deal on CL for a JET mini. I ended up buying a bed extension and some legs. I have not regretted that purchase. It was quiet. I could turn late at night, as I like to do sometimes. It was smooth. Then I picked up a Delta mini. It is great for small bowls and pen turning. Only the JET has variable speed without moving the belts, except to move to another speed range. OK, enough history. I picked up the NOVA 1624-44 on sale at Woodcraft.

The first thing that I noticed was the incredible power from a 110V outlet. I bought the outrigger style tool rest for turning big bowls, since I tend to push the limit. Putting a 50 lb chunk of walnut on the lathe was no problem. The machine is smooth. I haven't had any problems like one other reviewer, although I have turned some very heavy and hard wood. Hickory with knots the size of a cantaloupe has been no problem. I just ordered the bed extension, although I have had no problem turning spindles on my JET mini. I will be mounting a Laguna Tools copy attachment to make drumsticks, spindles, etc.

The only shortcoming has nothing to do with the advertised capabilities of the lathe. I have no complaints about that. I just want to have electronic speed control. Don't get me wrong. Moving the belts on this lathe is easy. It has enough power so that you don't have to move them often on a project. It is a sweet machine. Their DVR lathes are significantly more expensive; so, they were out of my acceptable price range. They are nice too.

Being a fairly new woodturner, this was the first lathe that I bought. I am extremely satisfied and very glad with the choice that I made. Assembly is not the easiest project, mostly because of the weight of the lathe, however, once set up, that weight is very useful in keeping the structure steady when turning unbalanced blanks. Changing speeds is very easy, and the low speed capabilities come in handy with large projects. The 16" swing is extremely nice, along with the reverse switch and the swivel headstock. Overall, this is an excellent lathe, and a great addition to any woodshop.

I have had the 1624 for about three years with no problems at all and turn a wide variety of items. So far I have had no problem with the headstock. The one reviewer is correct in not using a lot of pressure on the belt, mostly the weight of the motor plus a tad and Nova states this. This is the same with almost any tool (such as table saws).
I do use the swivel headstock out to the 22.5* on 95% of platters and bowls and the tool rest reaches fine. I seldom use the reverse but some really like it for sanding.
When I have contacted the service center (additional chucks, questions) I have had a quick response.
I am posting this mainly because there are so few reviews here. I would suggest for more reviews search for... Nova 1624 woodturning forum .... You should come up with hundreds of reviews/remarks on the many woodturning forums.

Fantastic! I just purchased this lathe to replace a 10 yr old Delta 46-715 that was no longer supportable due to obsolete parts. The construction of the Nova is solid. The motor is extremely quiet, has twice the horsepower of my old Delta, and has a switch to reverse the turning direction. The fit and finish are superb. All of the parts adjust smoothly and hold their settings under normal use. It is great for pen turning, spindle turning and bowl turning up to a foot in diameter. I plan to keep this one for a very long time. I would recommend this lathe without hesitation.

I love almost everything about this lathe after learning on a HF lathe for 3 years. This machine is solid, quiet, and powerful. No vibration. Hard to believe all the quality for the price; I'm saving almost a grand by changing the speed manually. It was a snap after the first week. I especially like the rotating head, the spindle index, and the ability to turn in reverse. The MT2 taper and through hole in the tailstock are going to let me do a ton of things that have always been a pain. This one is worth building a vacuum chuck, stand alone tool rest, and even eventually a steady rest for. It could end up being my last larger lathe, I recommend it.

This is my second lathe (the first one I bought second hand Central Machinery) and it is everything that Nova advertises. Well designed, well built and very affordable.
it arrived in one box which was split open and some of the contents hanging out. It's weight is about 280 lbs. and in my opinion it should be crated and on a pallet. It took me about 4 hours to assemble. It is joy to use. I recommend this over all other lathes in its class.

I bought this from another retailer. I love this lathe. I've had it about a year now and I use it at least twice a week and it's not slowed down or had any issues that weren't really my fault. I know a lot of guys prefer variable speed control and this only has the few preset speeds but it honestly takes me about 15 seconds to change speeds any more. It's heavy enough that I've done several bowls from not perfectly round blanks and even if I'm using a 12 - 16 inch log, it doesn't wobble all that much. I highly recommend this lathe to any of the weekend warrior guys like me. With the additional extension and out board turning it's really hard to think of a project that this lathe can't do.
