Nova Comet II Variable Speed Midi Lathe
We were selling the first version of this lathe years back and then it was withdrawn from the UK market for whatever reason.
We are delighted to have it back as version 2 and have one in the shop on display. The NOVA Comet II is a precise medium sized lathe built of solid cast iron throughout to add durability and stability. With a 1” x 8tpi mandrel thread, the head and tailstock spindles are 2 Morse taper.
The Comet II enables you to turn bowls and platters up to 300mm (12") diameter or turn spindles up to 420mm(161/2") long. The power comes from a (3/4 hp) motor, whilst the variable speed control allows you to match the speed to the work with a range between 250 and 4,000rpm.
The forward and reverse function is a function for achieving a superior sanded finish.
