1 review for NOVA COMET II MIDI LATHE

  1. 5 out of 5

    :

    I purchased this Lathe, Model 46300 Nova Comet ll New Version, in September of 2016, after selling my Jet Lathe of comparable size with an extension. I am SO HAPPY that I made the switch! The ease of working with this Lathe, and my dealings with Andrew and Jon Ford down in Saint Petersburg, just made everything all the better! While I am somewhat of a beginner Turner, I am having a ball making Pen’s with this Fine machine. I can’t wait till I start on other project’s like bowls and such! Thank You Teknatool…….
