We have at last received our Nova order of Voyager drill presses, the new Saturn lathe and new stock of Galaxi lathes.
 
The Nova brand is now marketed by Craft Supplies which as we understand it, is a brand name owned by Turners Retreat who in turn, are owned by Robert Sorby.
Lots of smoke and mirrors it seems, but the reassuring thing is that we will now be receiving the professional back-up and service that Sorby have always provided.
 
The next shipment is due in September so if you are considering an upgrade to one of the Nova machines, do check out our prices because we have really sharpened our pencil for this launch.
 NEW Nova Voyager Drill Press
 
It seems to us that that drill speeds are more critical than lathe speeds, so the new DVR drill press from Teknatool could have been the first use of this technology and we have wanted once since we first heard about them, so the first one that arrives here will be in our own workshop!
 
As Woodworkers Journal said “Computer controlled DVR motor is poised to revolutionise drill presses . . .”
 
The world’s first smart drill press combines the best features of drill presses with state of the art technology to make your project work more efficient, fun and safer. The NOVA Voyager DVR Drill Press is the most versatile drill press on the market, easily able to handle wood, metal, plastics and glass. It combines the proven technology with some great new features with intelligent Striatech ADAPTIVE CONTROL™ software that works for you to produce optimum conditions for your specific projects.

 NEW Nova Saturn DVR Lathe

Successor to the DVRxp and not as beefy as the proven Galaxi, the Saturn lathe nonetheless has the best features of larger lathes and will be ideal where space for a Galaxi is tight.

NOVA Saturn DVR Lathe delivers incredible turning smoothness with no belts or pulleys to cause the vibration. The DVR motor is controlled by a computer which automatically adjusts the motor for optimal performance. With its solid cast iron construction, the Saturn is a very smooth and stable operator. The lathe’s smooth operation allows it to run faster and efficiently, cutting down sanding time. The 10 favorite speed function enables you to set up to 5 most used speeds.

 Nova Galaxi DVR Lathe
This lathe has all the time-tested features of the DVRxp but with an improved control dashboard, a push button stop, better swivel lock, a longer bed and the facility to slide the headstock along the bed.
The control dashboard is particularly good but it is too easy to stand there just exploring what it can do then forget to go turning!

 Nova 1624 II lathe
Built to a high standard, the NOVA 1624 II a compact lathe but with great capabilities. All the major castings are thick section cast iron, resulting in a lathe with a solid feel and smooth, low vibration running.
 
The 1,120W (1.5HP) 230V induction motor provides plenty of power for large projects. The pulley system offers an excellent choice of 8 speeds, and belt changing is easy. The low speed (178rpm) gives plenty of scope for the large diameter turnings, while the high speed (3,000rpm) is perfect for pens, lace bobbins or many other small turning projects. 
 
The NOVA 1624 II comes with a strong steel stand featuring adjustable levelling feet. It includes a 2MT drive centre, 2MT live centre, 80mm faceplate, 300mm tool rest, fastenings and manual.

 e-Newsletter of 18th April
 
Most of you will have heard that Nova products are back in the capable hands of Robert Sorby. The Nova brand is being marketed by Craft Supplies which as we understand it, is a brand name owned by Turners Retreat who in turn, are owned by Robert Sorby.
 
Lots of smoke and mirrors it seems, but reassuring that we will now be receiving the professional back-up Sorby delivers on a brand we have been selling since we opened in 1996.

New stocks of Galaxi, 16-24, the new Saturn lathe, chucks and the new Voyager DVR drill press are all on order for later in the year but we got impatient and have bought in Galaxi lathes from The main European distributor to add to our 16-24 stock and we did quite well on the exchange rate so are going to run an offer on these and other Nova lathes while we have stock and ahead of any price changes.
 
Carriage will be our usual £35.00 excpet for far-flung UK postcodes but if you hail from one of the latter, do ask us to quote with our sharpest pencil.
