Love my NOVA DVR…not the 3000 model, just the origional. Digitally controlled speed with compensation for work load, push button reversable, programable ramp up time, automatically stops when it senses a “hard catch”, 360 degree rotating headstock, 16” swing (when between centers….much larger with the headstock turned) and an unlimited distance between centers (but I only have 1 bed extension giving me a total of 44”.) If I remember correctly, when I bought it new from WC it was only $1600 in the box. For a wide range of applications and turning sizes its definitly the best lathe for the money in my opinion. I’ve used it on everything from pens and bottle stoppers up to a 28” bowl. Its also been the origin of a couple of baseball bats. NEVER failed to acomplish what has been asked of her! (yes my lathe is a her) :-)
