Nova Saturn is Great
Received my Nova Saturn lathe direct from the manuf.and purchased through Tools-Plus. Fantastic price that blew away every other price I could find. Dealing with Tools Plus was great and they were very responsive to questions I ask via email.

The lathe is solid and works well. Looking forward to a long relationship with it.

Great lathe!
Had to wait a couple of weeks to get this new Nova Saturn DVR, because they were sold out, but certainly worth the wait. I can pick up and carry (barely), my old Jet 1236 lathe. I had to have help putting the Saturn together, because I could pick up and carry one leg of the Saturn (barely), this this is gelreat!
ProsVery heavy duty, cast iron throughout the legs, bed, tool rest, banjo, tail stick, etc.
ConsHaven’t found any yet.
