I'm a hobby turner who sells I few things. I have owned 6 Jets of various sizes, one Rikon and one PM 4224. Seventeen years ago I purchased both a 1/2 hp and a 1/4 hp Nova Mercury lathes. The 1/2 hp motherboard failed after ten years of use, but I have used the 1/4 hp Nova Mercury lathe almost daily for all seventeen years. I sold the PM 2442 because it was too cumbersome for my ancient, decrepit corpus and bought two Nova DVR lathes--both the 1624 and the 2024, but will soon sell the 2024 because I'm also getting too old to keep it happily working. I have added the Outrigger assembly and the bed extension with the Swing away hinge to the 2024 and my eighty-year-old arthritic chassis thanks me every day for the almost silent motor and the ease of manipulating this lathe. I try to keep my wife, six kids, twenty-five grand children and one great grandchild amazed and grateful and am mostly successful as long as I stay in the hobby shop. I don't act my age, but unfortunately I look every second of it. But life is good as long as I'm turning.
