comet II review
By soulrider from Moore, OK on April 4, 2015
Item arrived triple boxed for protection. It was easy to setup and instructions were simple to follow. I did the motor burn in at high an medium speed. The first turning project I did was a game call. Plenty of power and torque. The reverse setting made sanding easy. The G3 chuck has several nice features and I look forward to trying it. The variable speed is another great option. This makes turning different projects easier by not having to change belt positions.
Pros:
Variable speed
Price
G3 chuck gives you more options
quiet operation
Cons:
Haven't found any yet

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Nova Lathe
By Greg from S illinois on March 10, 2015
Lathe was easy to setup and worked as it should, no missing parts like most big box stores.
Tools Plus did an excellent job delivering what they promised.

By Art Duser from Mount Dora FL on January 18, 2015
I received the nova comet II with a cracked bed. Apparently from mishandling during shipment. Heather at Tools-plus immediately started fixing my problem. Not counting the weekend my problem was eliminated in three days
Pros:
design
Cons:
nothing

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Very accurate.
By CJ from Satsuma, Florida on January 15, 2015
At this point have only turned pens. I am very pleased with how the machine functions. Am waiting anxiously for when I have an opportunity to turn a bowl. I seems to have all the power and speeds that I will need to produce excellent pieces
Pros:
Being able to change belt speeds from the front.
Cons:
To me it seems the reverse switch is in the wrong place. I have also experienced a problem because the forward position is in the up position. I would have put the forward position in the down position to prevent possible accidental movement of the switch.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

a good price on a decent midi lathe
By elric from columbia, md on January 13, 2015
used it extensively for turning spindles and bowls
Pros:
quiet, smooth and relatively inexpensive. the g3 chuck is nicely made but small opening.
Cons:
the tailpiece adjustment is tight
the drive can be started with the headstock in the disengaged position meaning that it won't turn
this is an easy mistake to make since the knob is on the back of the headstock

I would recommend this item to a friend.

A bump in the road
By Larry from Northfield, MN on January 10, 2015
I cannot be more pleased with the service I have received from both Nova and Tools-Plus.com. As sometimes happens, the lathe I received had a mechanical problem. When a chuck was mounted on the spindle there was excessive runout, about .005, which caused my turned material to be out of round.

I notified customer service, who, in turn, notified Nova, and within one day, I had been contacted and questioned regarding the problem, and within three days, an RMA was issued and Tools-Plus.com shipped me a replacement lathe.

I am so pleased with the service. I will be getting the new lathe on Wednesday and that's phenomenal turnaround on an online purchase. Thank you to all concerned, especially Lisa Goffredo, who really coordinated the whole process. Lisa was just great...period. She's the kind of person who really "makes" it for me. A real pro.

Suffice it to say, I'll be buying my next piece of equipment from Tools-Plus.com.


Pros:
I love every feature of this lathe. I can't wait to really get to use one when my new one comes!

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Nova Lathe 46300 Comet II
By Bill from West Virginia on January 6, 2015
So far I love this lathe. Tad heavy to carry to the basement but once there the weight is appreciated as it will not move around. Pretty easy to set up, instructions good and easy to understand. Have turned a couple of items and I am very happy with my lathe. The changing of the belt is easy and I really like the adjustable speed control, works perfectly! Got a GREAT deal from Tools-Plus on lathe and G3 chuck.
Pros:
Adjustable speed of lathe with dial, runs smoothly, ease of setup, great value for the money.
Cons:
Nothing

I would recommend this item to a friend.

nova midi lathe comet II W G3 chuck
By william patton from Rosman N.C. on December 19, 2014
Took about 15 min to set up lathe Ran on high speed for 1 hour per instructions, started turning immediately. After 25 years with a 1952 sears craftsman lathe with no chuck this was heaven. Runs smooth and changes speed perfectly. Am extremely happy with this product.
Pros:
speed ranges and easy changing
Cons:
Motor should have been run at factory.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
