What's In The Box?!?! - 20 replies

My NOVA DVR 2024 arrived yesterday … one day early, and seven days after I ordered it. Online reviews complained about the way the product was packed and shipped.

I did a 3/8” deep recess on each side (so the wheel would fit on the buffer’s arbor) and trued the wheel up on the lathe. It runs pretty much dead true and has no vibration.

Honest to Pete … the forum page is all screwed up again! Who thinks it is a good idea to expose the entire contents of the original post (unformated) so you have to scroll through blobs of text? Yeah … it is not the end of the world and nobody has died, but it is annoying as h@ll.
