New direct-drive lathe from Nova

Nova introduced the new Galaxi DVR “Smart Motor” lathe and 25 accessories, including interchangeable tool rests and mobile shop bases.

“We believe with its advanced control features, the Galaxi will rewrite the book on wood lathe capabilities and design,” Tom Guertin, president of Tektnatool USA and manufacturer of Nova branded woodworking products, said in a statement.

The Galaxi lathe offers a direct drive 1.75-hp motor and precise variable-speed controller. It has a 44” bed capacity and swiveling head.

“You can go from 16” diameter swing inboard, swivel it to 45 degrees and instantly have a usable turning diameter of up to 18 inches, just using the standard tool rest and tool rest slide,” the company said. “Swivel to 90 degrees [and] you have a turning diameter of 32 inches using the outrigger system. This means the user can go from inboard, turning of chair legs to turning a large hollow form vase or bowl in a matter of minutes to set up.
