90% of 100

This outrigger is for use with the Nova 1624 II Lathe (#56659, sold separately). With the outrigger installed, you'll get rock steady chisel support when turning in the outboard mode, allowing you to turn blanks up to 29'' in diameter. Just swing it out to the desired position and lock it into place with the convenient levers. When you're finished, it folds away to retain a compact lathe footprint. The articulating arm has three points of adjustment: it swings along a wide arc, the toolrest post can be locked along the length of the arm, and the tool rest (not included) is height adjustable. Made from solid cast iron for optimum strength, stability, and vibration-free performance. Easily bolted in place at the end of the headstock bed casting.

Note: Tool rest is not included (the outrigger accepts the same tool rest that comes with your lathe).

Added versatility
The outrigger allows me to work on even bigger circumference pieces by turning the headpiece fully 90 degrees and I find myself using it even on smaller stuff with the head turned because I can easily position the rest all around the work piece.

Woodworking Experience:
Very good
Very easy to install, but the tower needed an additional washer to tighten down. Haven't used yet but if it works as well as the Nova it will be worth the money.
