Turn on the Nova DVR 2024, and you'll be greeted with smooth, whisper-quiet operation, and rock steady turning. That's because its direct drive technology has no pulleys or belts to cause vibration, and its solid cast iron construction absorbs what little there is. The DVR's smart motor features intelligent Adaptive Control software that produces optimum turning conditions for your specific projects. It measures the weight of the workpiece and adjusts the performance accordingly, and instantly shuts down power to the spindle if it senses chisel dig-ins or spindle lock. An exclusive wireless remote is included to allow on/off control and speed changes from any position, and the lathe offers 10 preset speed settings to make setup nearly instantaneous. The head swivels 360° and locks at any position for outboard turning of large items.Features: 2.3 HP direct-drive DVR motor offers excellent powerIncredible speed range, with a very low minimum of 100 RPM up to an incredibly high maximum of 5000 RPM, makes the Nova 2024 DVR Wood Lathe the perfect solution for a wide variety of projects from small pens to large bowls and plattersHead swivels 360° and locks at any position, with detents at 0°, 22°, 45° and 90°.

All insert-style Nova chucks use an easy and inexpensive insert/adapter system that lets you mount your chuck on virtually any lathe. The inserts are available with a variety of thread patterns on the interior, but all have the same exterior thread to fit all your Nova chuck(s). Just check the manual of your lathe to find the threading of your headstock spindle and purchase the corresponding adapter. Once the insert is in place, threading the chuck onto your lathe is a simple matter. The insert system also guarantees that you'll still be able to use your Nova chucks, even if you upgrade or change lathes later. If an insert/adapter is not available to match your lathe, you can have one threaded from a Blank Insert/Adapter (46298, sold separately). Also see our Chuck Spanner (49013, sold separately), which is useful for tightening the inserts in place. All insert-style Nova chucks (apart from the obsolete Compac chuck) use the same insert/adapter system to ensure maximum adaptability and flexibility for the user.Large range of inserts fit many different popular lathe models (see below). This makes it easy to bring your chucks with you when you change lathes.Inserts are threaded both inside and out. Outside thread is made to fit into the Nova Chucks. The inside thread fits onto your lathe.Note: Directly threaded chucks cannot be adapted to insert-style chucks.
