With power, a wide speed range, and the capacity to handle everything from pens to platters, the Nova 1624 II is an excellent entry-level lathe that's built to last. It features a 1.5 hp AC motor with eight speed settings, including a low speed of 215 rpm—essential for turning large pieces and bowls. In addition, this lathe is equipped with a space-saving swivelling head, so its capacity isn't limited in smaller workshops.

The 1624 II is built to be durable and includes a steel and cast iron stand with individually adjustable feet, heavy-duty bearings, cam-lock controls and precision-machined components. And with optional upgrades like a 20" bed extension or outrigger assembly, you can add to the 1624 II's capacity and turn bigger, more ambitious projects.

Includes 1.5 hp AC motor, belt, stand, 2MT live centre, 2MT spur/drive centre, 3" faceplate, 12" toolrest, manual and hardware.
