« Part 3: Incra Mitre Express / Incra 1000SE Mitre Gauge - VIDEO Part 4 of Tools series Part 5: Overhead Blade Guard »

Just for giggles, I did a standing coin test with the Nova DVR-XP. Many of you know, this is a new toy…er tool to my shop. I haven’t gotten a lot of time to enjoy it, but I have done a few things. The lathe is fantastic, smooth, lots of power and is a significant upgrade to the lathe I had before. In this series, I’m going to demonstrate some hollowing tools including the famous Termite and the Proforme Hollowers. In this little video, I just do the coin test. The LCD screen isn’t as clear as I had hoped on video, but I tried to add some titles so you can get the idea. You will be able to hear the lathe picking up speed.

Here’s the video!

Wow, a coin operated lathe! LOL. I hope you were wearing ear protection when you are at 3000 rpms, that was pretty loud. Very impressive demo.

Nice lathe Tom,very nice. My Delta does’nt run that smooth, but it gets the job done. There are’nt many things I’ve turned at 3300 rpms, although mine will turn that fast. So do you use it much, what do you turn? Ever do any segmented turning? Or done any of the real thin green wood stuff? Just curious, someone that does’nt know how to turn would’nt own a lathe like that. Nice video, show some more, maybe turning something. mike

Hey Mike! I know how to turn. I’m just no good at it. I’m trying to get my head around different forms. I have done a ton of bowls and like to do green turning. I bought the lathe after I became frustrated with my old lathe. I stopped turning for more than a year because of it. I’m just getting back into the groove. I have a couple of turning projects posted, but most of my turnings remain private until I’m more comfy with form. I did this lidded box a few days ago…
