  • New NOVA Comet II Midi Lathe

    Check out the accessories available for this midi lathe. The add-on 6" grinder looks like a
    very handy feature for instantly touching up the edge on your lathe chisels
    as you work.

    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

    Re: New NOVA Comet II Midi Lathe

    Well, I've been wondering why this lathe has not been available from any source, now I know.
    I received a Woodcraft catalog today in the mail, and on the back cover was the Comet II Midi Lathe
    for sale, just like it has always been there.

    But...when you go to the Woodcraft website and try to get details on the item, I saw this:

    So it doesn't look good for this tool. Innovative design as I said in my first post,
    but too bad that quality has slipped to the point where Woodcraft refuses to
    even accept the shipment from NOVA. I know that NOVA moved their manufacturing
    to China a couple years ago, before that I believe it was all done in New Zealand, but not
    sure about that.

    Have to wait and see what happens I guess for those that had an interest in this tool.
