* Quick Action Cam Controls: Precisely adjust to your requirements, fast.

Intelligent Control
Easy to operate, the NOVA DVR XP is the only SMART lathe on the market, using Adaptive Control™ Software. The intelligent computerised control assists you with your turning, for instance, measuring the weight of the workpiece and adjusting the performance accordingly, the ability to sense faults in the set up and advise, sense safety issues such as chisel dig ins and spindle lock, and instantly shuts down power to the spindle.

High Torque Power
Instant power when you need it. With it’s 1.75 (115vv)/2HP (220v) high torque motor, exceptional structural strength and smart design, it’s not only easy to convert to outrigger work for larger bowls and to extend spindle capacity with add on beds, but the lathe has the power and capacity to handle it with ease.

Faster, more efficient turning
NOVA DVR XP delivers incredible turning smoothness. With no belts or pulleys to cause vibration, a computer that automatically adjusts performance and solid cast iron construction, the DVR XP is one smooth operator. This delivers the ability to turn faster and more efficiently and cuts down on sanding time. The 5 FAVOURITE SPEEDS function also enables you to preselect your most used speeds, finishing your project faster.

Plug n’ Play
Easy to use, push button electronic variable speed with forward and reverse.

Safety Sensing
Computer control instantly cuts power to the spindle if it senses a chisel dig in, or if the spindle lock is on when wanting to turn the spindle.

Power Saving
Smart computer controlled motor only draws as much power as it needs for the project being worked on. The DVR motor can save up to 80% energy and emissions over conventional motors.

Amazing Lathe!!!

Review Summary

This is an amazing lathe! I don't know how much you would have to spend to get an equivalent product. I have turned everything from 11"x8" bowls to throwing darts on it.

NOVA DVR XP Lathe

Review Summary

I have been turning for almost 60 years and the DVR XP is a joy to work with. I have tried and tested many other lathes and not one of them can come anywhere near the DVR. At 181 pounds this is not a heavyweight machine but it easily performs all tasks within its 16 inch capacity over the lathe bed. It fits in a compact footprint and can be securely mounted on a bench or freestanding stand.
The big bonus is the swivel headstock that makes hollowing a pleasant experience without reaching far in over the lathe bed. The phenomenal capacity with the head at 90 degrees is 29 inches using the outboard tool rest. Speed selection is fantastic, 100 to 3500 rpm and can be selected in 5 rpm increments for very vine control. There are also 5 preset speeds to move quickly to your favourite speeds. I cannot say enough good things about the NOVA DVR XP woodlathe, it is fantastic!
