The Nova DVR has much more capacity than the Jet Mini, of course. Time to make bigger projects!

Great helmet, but you forgot the chin strap. haha Nice shape and grain. Looking forward to more BIG projects from the BIG lathe.

Keep it up.

Gloves on a lathe are a bad idea if you like the use of your hands.

Bob: A great job on the bowl. That was and is a very nice looking chunk of maple.

Looks like you are enjoying your new lathe, they are addicting I know. Helmet is looking good…
Ger21 I am glad it wasn’t just me that found this image disturbing. From a metalworking background it is a huge safety violation to wear gloves and loose clothes near anything that is spinning, maybe on a wood lathe the belts would slip or the motor power out before it ripped your fingers/ hand/ arm off though. I have seen other posts of LJs with gloves and lathes… Be careful and safe my friends.

Great looking bowl and makes attractive attire as well. I might try something like that the time the wife goes on a rampage.

Great job. Looks really nice, and you can’t wait to use the DVR a little more.
Thanks for posting

At least your wife told you to place it on your head. After my first big bowl I asked wife where she wanted me to place it. I still walk funny.
Nice job and keep having fun.
