NOVA 55600 Nebula 18 in. DVR Wood Lathe


The Nova Nebula 18 in. DVR Wood Lathe delivers the BEST Power, Intelligence, and Safety features in the industry with state-of-the-art technology to make your turning more efficient, fun, and safer. Nebula software applications open a whole new world of lathe control functions that do not exist in traditional wood lathes. When it comes to safety, nothing matches the Nebula, with pin code lock capability, chisel jam sensor/auto shutdown, excess vibration detection, and electronic braking. The Nebula gives you the Power to Turn and Burn. Its 2 HP (110V) / 2.5 HP (220V) Direct Drive DVR motor provides more power and torque than any competitive 18 in. lathes on the market. With no pulleys or belts, the full power of the award-winning DVR motor is at the spindle, vibration-free for the smoothest operation available in any lathe. At the same time, the intelligent motor is constantly monitoring the spindle position to keep the RPM constant and give the user a consistent finish no matter the material or size of the workpiece. The Nova DVR Motor also delivers a vast speed range with a twist of speed control that includes a very low speed of 100 RPM to an incredibly high speed of 4000 RPM. This makes it the perfect solution for a wide variety of projects from small pens to large bowls and platters. With the ability to program up to 8 favorite speeds, the Nebula instantly and efficiently allows the user to toggle to their desired speed. The headstock will swivel or slide for outboard turning in various positions utilizing the accessory extension bed and outrigger (purchased separately), meaning even turning large bowls or platters up to (35 in.) is a breeze and includes 24 spindle indexing divisions (15 Degrees apart). When it comes to capacity, Nebula delivers with 18 in. over the bed and 35-in. capacity with the optional accessories. The overall distance between centers is 25 in. or 44 in. with optional bed extension. No matter what the operation and position, the magnetic remote box offers the user full control with on/off, variable speed control, and RPM readout as well as an emergency stop. The 360-Degree swiveling headstock locks at any position and includes locating detents at 0 Degrees, 22.5 Degrees, 45 Degrees, 90 Degrees, and 180 Degrees. The tailstock is an MT2, is self-ejecting, and has a full 4.7-in. travel for all your boring needs. Additional features of the unique DVR drive include Electronic Auto Braking, Speed Selection Chart, Eight Favorite Speed Settings, Speed Ramp Profiles, Idle Motor Detection, Slow Drying Mode, Upgradeable Firmware, an Emergency Stop button, and Vibration Sensing. Standard Equipment includes Cast Iron Stand, Wired Moveable Remote, 6 in. Faceplate, 12 in. Tool rest, 2MT Live Center, 2MT Spur Center, NOVA DVR Motor & Controller, Knock Out Bar, manual & fastenings, and weighs in at 469 lbs. Warranty is 5 years on mechanical and 2 years on motor and electronics.
