    The only lathe I have owned is a Nova 1624 which I've had for at least 12 years. Many times I have wished I had variable speed, but I've always managed without. No complaints on the Nova, in fact...

    Would you consider building one? Call me cheap, but if I can make a jig or fixture that works and saves me money, that's what I do. I made a sphere jig for right around $100.00. That included the...
