I Got A New Toy

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.

It looks like just what that bench needed.
And I agree with ssfone, nice shop.

I must admit it. I'm just a little bit jealous.

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!

Welcome to the DVR club Whaler

Have you had a chance to get shavings and sawdust all over it yet? Hope it gives you many many hours of turning!

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

After a short turning session about all I can say is WOW what a machine.

Glidden, here is what it looks like now and is probably as clean as it will ever be.

I think you will really like that lathe. I know several folks who have it and they love it. Happy turning.

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,
