New 2020 Model - Now with Digital Speed Display

Portable, space saving - yet delivers the capacity and the rugged stability of larger lathes. This quality midi lathe by Nova has had a refresh - featuring a new aesthetic that fits well with their top-of-the-line Orion, but now includes a very useful Digital Speed Readout for the Electronic Variable Speed settings. Located on the headstock, the constant read system provides live speeds, visible at a glance while you work. Having a digital readout allows you to return to your favourite speeds for certain jobs and learn what works best for you.

Comet II Midi Lathe Features and Benefits:

- Powerful Electronic Variable Speed Motor offers an RPM range from 250 to 4000 RPM With a super lower speed up to a super-high speed, this makes the NOVA Comet II Midi Lathe the perfect choice for a variety of projects, from pens to bowls.

- Forward and Reversing Switch offers additional flexibility and allows you to achieve a superior finish.

- 12" Swing Capacity over bed and 16.5" between centers, extendable with bed extension accessory.

- 3 Step Pulley System offers different speed ranges while providing maximum flexibility. The middle step usually provides enough range for most Wood Turning applications, however the additional 2 steps provide more torque for the more demanding applications.

A 1" x 8" Spindle thread supports the Nova range of chucks and accessories and both headstock and tailstock are fitted with Morse 2 Tapers. We recommend the purchase of a Nova G3 or SN2 chuck, to get the most from your woodturning experience. The lathe comes with a Drive Center, Live Center and 4" Direct thread Faceplate.

A stand (TK-47050) and a bed extension (TK-47001) are also available as optional accessories.
