Its electronic variable speed motor offers a wide RPM range from 250 to 4000 RPM - perfect for a variety of projects from pens to bowls. The forward and reverse switch offers additional flexibility and allows you to achieve a superior finish. In addition, Nova's unique Versaturn™ Adaptable Technology, paired with the optional accessory attachments, transforms the lathe into an all-in-one wood turning and woodworking system.
