103718 NOVA 1624 II Lathe £1,112.47

Built to a high standard, the NOVA 1624 II is capable of taking a 400mm (16") diameter bowl over the bed or turning a 610mm (24") long spindle.

All the major castings are thick section cast iron, resulting in a lathe with a solid feel and trouble free, low vibration running.

The 1,120W (1.5HP) motor provides plenty of power for large projects. The pulleys offer an excellent choice of 8 speeds, belt changing is easy. The low speed (178rpm) gives plenty of scope for the large diameter turnings, while the high speed (3,000rpm) is perfect for pens or lace bobbins. This lathe is great for wooden bowls, pens, spindles, small table parts and anything you can turn in the range 400mm (16") diameter by 610mm (24") long. The 360° swivelling head means that you can still turn larger bowls comfortably in a reasonably compact space.

The control switch on the headstock has a safety off button and reversing switch. Cam action levers make adjustments fast and easy; their rubber grips provide good ergonomics.

The NOVA 1624 II comes with a strong steel stand featuring adjustable levelling feet. It includes a 2MT drive centre, 2MT live centre, 80mm faceplate, 300mm toolrest, fastenings and manual.
