I found a Nova Mini Lathe for sale on CL. It’s got the lathe, a 12” bed extension, chuck, Shop Fox stand, and tools all together. The lathe is in good condition. I’ve already bought it, but I wanted to see what folks on here think a good price would be. Then I’ll say how much I paid for it.

Slowest speed is 140 RPM. Fastest is 5300+. Has 1/2 HP DC motor, so maybe it isn’t the Comet. I didn’t see Comet written on it anywhere, but I know the RPM does go to just over 5300 RPM. the 4600 Comet sells online for about $500 – $650 shipped.

The tools are okay, but the tools I already have are actually better.

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts. I don’t have the pictures because the guy already took down the ad. I asked him to email me some and I’ll edit this if/when I get some pictures.
