The Orion can be made longer to suit longer projects as needed.
The Nova Orion 18" DVR Wood Lathe combines the high power, capacity, and capabilities of today's larger lathes with state-of-the-art technology to make your turning more efficient, more fun, and safer.
Great for those who need all the workshop space they can get - this lathe can be configured with a compact footprint, or with the included 22-1/2" cast-iron bed extension for larger projects.
The Orion gives you power with its 1-3/4 HP 110V/2HP 220V DVR motor, which provides more torque than many lathes on the market.
With no pulleys or belts to vibrate, the award-winning DVR motor is smooth and delivers intelligent control to your turning experience.
The Nova DVR motor also delivers an incredible variable spindle speed range from 100–5000 RPM, with eight programmable speeds. This makes it the perfect solution for a wide variety of materials and projects from small pens to large bowls
When it comes to capacity, the Orion delivers with an 18" swing over the bed with a 45-1/4"overall between centers when using the extension bed.
The 360° swiveling headstock locks at any position and includes locating detents at 0, 22.5°, 45° and 90°. The tailstock is self-ejecting.
The bed has CAD designed webbing to absorb vibration throughout the bed length and provides exceptional structural strength.
