Return Policy

The Nova 1624 II retains all of the prized features of the older 1624, but with a gleaming black finish that matches other recent offerings from Nova. Its swiveling headstock rotates a full 360°, and locks at any position for outboard turning of large items. The powerful 1.5 HP belt-drive motor delivers 50% more power than comparable lathes, and features eight speeds with a range of 215-3600 RPM. Solid cast iron components deliver rock solid performance and low vibration. The cam action levers make adjustments fast and easy, while the beefy rubber grips provide good ergonomics. All this fits into a compact workspace, yet is expandable to meet the needs of the largest projects. Includes cast iron and steel stand.
