The ever-popular Nova Comet II Lathe has had an upgrade!

This quality midi lathe by Nova has had a refresh - featuring a new aesthetic that fits well with their top-of-the-line Orion, but now includes a very useful Digital Speed Readout for the Electronic Variable Speed settings. Located on the headstock, the constant read system provides live speeds, visible at a glance while you work. Having a digital readout allows you to return to your favourite speeds for certain jobs and learn what works best for you.

The Nova Comet II DR is portable and space saving - yet delivers the capacity and the rugged stability of larger lathes.

The Nova Comet II DR Midi Lathe is perfect for a wide range of Woodworking projects.

The powerful Electronic Variable Speed Motor offers an RPM range from 250 to 4000 RPM, over three belt ranges, at the twist of a dial. The middle pulley step usually provides enough range for most Wood Turning applications, while the additional 2 steps provide more torque for the more demanding and specific applications. The range of speed and power make this lathe the perfect choice for a variety of smaller projects, from pens and peppermills to bowls.

A 305mm (12") Swing Capacity over bed provides good scope for bowls and platters on a midi lathe, while the 419mm (16.5") between centres covers many small craft spindle projects. The distance between centres is extendable to 1065mm (42") with the optional bed extension accessory TK-47001.

A 1" x 8" Spindle thread supports the Nova range of chucks and accessories and both headstock and tailstock are fitted with Morse 2 Tapers. We recommend the purchase of a Nova G3 or SN2 chuck, to get the most from your woodturning experience. The lathe comes with a Drive Center, Live Center and 4" Direct thread Faceplate.

A Forward and Reverse Switch offers additional flexibility and allows you to achieve a superior finish.

Quality build, fit and finish make this lathe a very popular and capable midi lathe system. It's a great place to start your woodturning adventure!

An optional stand is also available, see TK-47050.

* IMPORTANT NOTE: As with any home equipment that features a circuit board, electronics can be vulnerable to significant power surges.
