The NOVA Saturn Lathe is available through NOVA/Teknatool and authorized retailers and distributors. Please visit www.teknatool.com for more information.
Easy to operate, the NOVA Saturn is a DVR SMART lathe. Uses Adaptive Control™ Software. The intelligent computerized control assists you with your turning. It measures the weight of the workpiece and continually adjusts performance accordingly. It senses faults in the setup and advises of safety issues- such as chisel dig in and spindle lock. It then instantly shuts down power to the spindle.
High Torque/Powerful Motor
Instant power when you need it. With its 1.75HP(115V) /2HP(220V), high torque motor not only is it easy to convert to outrigger work for larger bowls, but the lathe also has the power and capacity to handle it with ease.
Faster, more efficient turning
NOVA Saturn DVR Lathe delivers incredible turning smoothness with no belts or pulleys to cause the vibration. The DVR motor is controlled by a computer which automatically adjusts the motor for optimal performance. With its solid cast iron construction, the Saturn is a very smooth and stable operator. The lathe’s smooth operation allows it to run faster and efficiently, cutting down sanding time. The 10 favorite speed function enables you to set up to 5 most used speeds.
