My new Nova DVR XP was delivered this morning and it now resides on my turning bench. I haven't turned on it yet but did fire it up and ran it through the speeds, very smooth and quiet. A real piece of machinery.
I got that same one for a sweet deal on Craigslist a couple of months back. You will love it I guarantee. Save up and get the outrigger for doing larger bowls and platters. Also made myself an oak Morse2 taper going in both directions to help line up the headstock after you swivel. Swivel is amazing for bowl work.... No more bending over the bed!
A fine lathe for sure! I've had mine for about 2 years and am still impressed with it. A small suggestion if I may. You might want to give some thought to raising it up from the bench mount. I used 3" 2x4 cutoffs at each of the mounting points. Sure helps with the clean up,
