Nova GALAXI DVR 1624-44
Variable Speed Lathe
Teknatool/Nova will not mind us saying that communicating with them is at times, akin to holding a séance; OK, maybe they will, but either way, they have been making excellent lathes and chucks since the early 80’s and despite a gap in supplies last year when, without our knowledge, our long favourite the DVRxp was discontinued to be replaced by the Galaxi DVR, we are delighted to be continuing with this new thoroughbred.
This new 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!
The new controls are intuitive with eight favourite speed settings and ability to go up or down within any of these.
It also has a brake that can be unset for slow wind-down. Self ejecting tail stock with indexed quill and a natty storage box for drive and tail centre.
• Powerful 2 hp, direct drive variable speed motor.
• High Torque Power, instant power when you need it.
• Ultra Smooth Cutting, no belts or pulleys to cause vibration.
• Reversible, variable speed from 100 to 5000 rpm with digital readout.
• 8 pre set speeds for instant access to desired speed.
• Low speed torque (up to 1000 rpm) giving even more control when turning large, out of balance pieces.
• Full 360° swivel head.
• Low maintenance industrial grade electronics.
• Triple bearing system.
• Easy slide and locking tailstock and banjo.
