  • Overview

    The Nova Comet II Midi Lathe packs the capacity and rugged stability of much larger lathes into a portable, space-saving design. And with the included G3 Comet II reversible chuck, you can take full advantage of the lathe's reversing feature for better versatility and a superior finish. The lathe has electronic variable speed from 250 to 4000 RPM—perfect for a variety of projects from pens to bowls. 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.
