1.0 out of 5 stars Don’t buy poorly made
By victoria vonderwell on May 10, 2018
Poorly made , broke with in the first few minutes, you would think that it being a good brand that it would be good but this was horrible, waited 6 weeks for delivery, then once arrived I followed the directions and let run for 30 mins and started to test the lathe I put the face plate on testing the threads and when I went to take off using the spindle lock pin it broke instantly and I fell downwards, so the the spindle pully index wheel has notches that hold the index locking pin which holds the headstock to remove faceplates or chucks and this is the this is the only way to hold the head stock in place unless you make something to hold it and not use what was built onto the lathe , online it says the notched made of cast steel but this is definitely plastic, so it is very poorly made unfortunately, owell live and learn

so several months later after dealing with Nova who is awful by the way i eventually got a new spindle index pulley wheel being that this lathe has a warranty, only had to wait 2 months for it to arrive they have the worst customer service reps ever, so hopefully one day this awful machine will turn wood but still waiting on another part to arrive that also doest work , that being the switch on off button, such a headache, so my opinion of this lathe is still horrible ,

5.0 out of 5 stars ... of months ago to make yarn bowls and the like for the local knitting community
By JackRock on March 22, 2018
I purchased this lathe a couple of months ago to make yarn bowls and the like for the local knitting community. I wanted more than the 1/2HP I was seeing elsewhere, and quality is a huge factor for me - as is space. This lathe met all the requirements, and didn't charge me an arm and a leg. Though I see it going for $1100 right now, I paid less than $500 just earlier this year.

The HP is a tad low, but still plenty for me to do my work; I just take lighter cuts when hollowing. I also purchased the coupler and grinder attachment, making sharpening my tools quick and easy. This is a great lathe for beginners and intermediate turners alike. Though, if you plan on going full-time professional, you may need a larger lathe with more horsepower (and probably a 220V circuit).
