Overall Rating for Nova Lathes 46300 Comet II MIDI Lathe
(based on 2 reviews)
good lathe, great deal
By JAC from MO on June 18, 2014
I've had this lathe for about a month and have turned a couple dozen turkey calls on it. Way more lathe than you would expect at this price point. I shopped around a bit and looked at the Jet 2112 VS but at approximately twice the cost just couldn't take the plunge. The Jet has some +'s like no belt changing but other than that not that much more in the way of features. Certainly not enough difference that I regret saving $350+ on the nova.
Pros:
Best price on the web that I could find and free shipping to boot on an overall great midi lathe.
The VS works like a dream.
Cons:
belt changing could be a little more accessible for guys with fat fingers.
Personally I would make it with a little wider stance.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great Lathe
By Branson from Texas on May 5, 2014
Been turning for a while but this is my first midi lathe. Works great and is super quiet. Turned a mahogany bowl much faster than i expected. Variable speed and reverse are wonderful. Love this lathe.
Pros:
Quiet
Sturdy
Does exactly what it's supposed to do
Cons:
None so far

I would recommend this item to a friend.
