If space is a problem get the Nova XP. Have to shop around for best price. Lot of money for a bare bones lathe when consider price of optional equipment. I would buy the XP over the 2024 if space at a premium. Nova DVR 2024 Lathe too expensive for what you get.

If going to be turning lot of large out of balanced items and have Room and 220V line look at this lathe. No not Oneway or Robust, still a well built.

I turn on a Jet lathe with 16” swing and turn heavy out of balanced items and would not even try on either Nova lathe.
