Novaa 46300 comet II
i am as green as a tomato to wood turning. I started with a free harbor frt 14x48( I think) lathe. This was the older version with the sheet metal frame. I could not turn anything for 3 min. with everything coming loose or vibrating across the garage floor . I say this to make a point. Don't go cheap because you will get frustrated. I took this Nova 46300 which was double boxed to prevent damage which was great and after letting the motor do it's thing like the manual says was off to the races. I have this just sitting on a bench not bolted down and it has not vibrated or moved one inch. where as I could not turn for 3 min. with everything shaking loose before. This machine is a dream. Bottom line plenty of power, you can do almost anything on this size lathe and much more enjoyable to turn on. 100% recommended.

Small Shop Lathe - Nova Lathes 46300
To start, I have a very small shop to work in and this lathe fits. Being new to woodturning I looked for a lathe
that would give me the most bang for my buck, plus quality. This lathe fits the bill. Yes , I looked at green
ones , red ones, blue and white ones, white ones and grayish ones. Some had to be modified right out of the box
and some were just silly expensive.
Here comes NOVA, the lathe was priced right , no modifications were required, it ran RIGHT, right out of the box.
This lathe has all the toys you need built in. You can't go wrong with this one.
ProsReady to go right out of the box.*** Easy motor break in.*** Easy set up.*** Runs very quiet.
ConsI did not care for the way the access door for the belt was held closed. Got rid of the screw thingy and put in a magnet to keep it closed. Now it is " easy open".

Comet ii
I am a beginner wood turner. I researched several different models. Jet, nova, and Delta. You canít beat the Nova in terms of pricing and flexibility. The centers were dead on right out of the box. Tools Plus provided good packaging and quick shipping Iíve only had set up for a couple of weeks but already finished 3 bowls and so far very pleased with this purchase Tools Plus had the best pricing on this lathe.

good lathe, great deal
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.
ProsBest 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.
Consbelt changing could be a little more accessible for guys with fat fingers. Personally I would make it with a little wider stance.

Great Lathe
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.
ProsQuiet Sturdy Does exactly what it's supposed to do
ConsNone so far
