Just bought a new Nova Galaxy 1644 DVR lathe. Keep getting a RPS Error 1 msg. I did the factory reset 4 times now with no luck. Plan to call Nova Monday. Has anyone have had the problem?

Don’t have a Galaxy, but this might help: http://www.teknatool.com/products/lathes/dvr%20xp/Downloads/FAQ%20-%20DVR%20RPS%20State%20Error%20Stage%202.pdf

On a new lathe, you shouldn’t be getting errors … maybe something worked loose in shipping.

PROBLEM SOLVED…Bad sensor. The team at Technatol in St Pete, Florida did a good Job to get me running.
Kudos to Jon Ford and Mike for all their help

Been using my new Nova DVR Galaxy every day now and am very impressed. The lathe is exceeding my expectations and Technatool’s management in St Petersburg, Florida runs a first class operation. 6 Stars out of five.

Gerry1942—Did you get the remote with your lathe?

I retro-fitted by Nova DVR 2024 with one of their new-style remotes …

... had to change out a board in the control panel, and their support staff was terrific.

It has been about 4 months now and the Nova Galaxy is an outstanding machine. Very user friendly , not sure what benefits one gets for the $4000 pluse machines other than swing and horsepower but this Nova Galaxy is a great value.

At the risk of sounding slightly ignorant; I have a question. What does a remote control do for a lathe, and why would you need one? Maybe it’s just early in the morning and I’m not functioning right but I am curious. I am sure that there is a very good reason, but it just seems to be an extraneous bell or whistle for marketing purposes. Can someone out there enlighten me? Good Luck, Work Safely and Have Fun!

With something like the Nova Galaxi you can be working on the pretty long stuff, nice to be able to adjust the speed and turn it on and off to check progress from either end. If you are turning the inside of a bowl and have to turn it in and off every few minutes to check progress it can get a little frustrating to constantly have to get up.

The remote gives you a portable emergency shut-off switch. If something goes haywire while turning a big blank, the last place you want to be is at the headstock in the line of fire.
