Nova 1624-44 Lathe
I started out with a Jet 1220 and while it was a good starting lathe I was starting to feel constrained by the power. The Nova offers me more power, a lower low speed, and option for outboard turning in the future. Would have loved to get a DVR model but can’t justify it being a weekend warrior.
Craftsman 12” Band Saw Model 103.24280
I picked this up from an old timer that was liquidating his shop. He got it from his father 30 years ago. From what I can tell these were produced in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s by King-Seely for Sears. The motor is from an old Craftsman grinder. The stand is homemade but could be pretty sturdy with a little rework. The main thing right now is that it works.
Craftsman 6” Grinder
I broke down and got a Wolverine jig, an upgrade from my curtain rod home brew setup. At least I spend less time at the grinder and more time turning now.
Standard set of power tools (crosscut saw, drill, etc).
