A great buy! No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I have never used a lathe before this one so I have nothing to comppare it to! But I absolutely love this thing.
I have only great things to say about it!

If you are looking for a mid size lathe this is the one to buy!

I have a jet knockoff and wish (now that i love turning) that I had bought this one. I love how you have pimped yours out with the green neon.

I got mine a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. This is actually my second Lathe, and there is just no comparison, the Delta 460 is a superior machine!

Once again Delta has made amazing lathe. That lathe will last a life time.
With all Delta tools right out of the box quality.

Maybe its time to let go the 1941 craftsman and pick one of these up????

I’ll be picking this one up in the next month or so…did you get a separate chuck for yours?

The one with the rounded corners is the nova insert. the other one is one that a certain company sold marked “nove insert” it isn’t. Its an aftermarket and will not turn true!

Cool, thanks. The price is right on the Nova. I’m thinking of either that or the Oneway Talon, since the Talon is secure for reversing during sanding.

Congrats on the lathe. I have to ask about the photo though. Whats that green glow from? Is your wood shop near a nuclear reactor or something?
