Thread: Nova 1624 motor

    Nova 1624 motor

    I have a Nova 1624 that I have used very little and while turning a bowl a couple weeks ago the shaft twisted off. Teknatool support seems to be avoiding me. But Iím wondering if I can replace the shaft or do I need to replace the whole motor. If the latter is the case is there a cheaper motor that would fit this lathe? Replament motor is close to $500 so if thatís the case Iíll just save for the DVR upgrade. If anyone has gone through the upgrade and has a used motor for sale please let me know. Also what would cause a shaft to twist off?image.jpg

    You will have to replace the motor but may not have to buy it from Teknatool. Some lathes use a special motor and some use standard motors. Look at the nameplate for these items:
    * rpm (probably 1750 +-)
    * Frame size (two or three numbers and possibly some letters)
    * HP
    If you can find a motor with the same frame size and about the same rpm, it will work. You probably want a motor with the same HP rating but this not critical to replacement. Frame size covers mounting bolt location, shaft size, shaft length etc.
    When failure is not an option
    Mediocre is assured.

    Justin, where are you located? I have a spare Nova 1624 motor, but shipping costs might be too much.

    Also, someone was recently selling a DVR motor for $350 in the classifieds. Not sure if they still have it.

    If you have a place that rebuilds electric motors in your area it might be worth checking with them and seeing if it can be rebuilt.

    I have the motor you need. Did an up grade several years ago. In good running order. Located in eastern Washington. You may have had excessive belt pressure . PM me for more info.

    Looks like around $50 to ship from NY for a zip in SE IA (I just used a zip from Iowa city). I'm back home on the 1st, so I can only ship next week. If you're interested then please PM me and we can discuss.

    Looks like I cannot reply to your PM because of recent changes to membership privileges. If you choose to become a contributor, I'll be happy to discount the price of the motor by whatever amount you pay to become a contributor...
