Found some more information this morning on the new DVR 2024 that has obviously gone up overnight.
Not too bad with respects to my (untimely?) purchase of the XP on the same day as the new one was announced in the US. (Whew) It also sounds like the 2024 is an addition to the range, and not a replacement of the XP.
The top speed has been increased from 3500RPM to 5000RPM, and there are now 10 preset-able favourite speeds, rather than 5. Onboard capacity has been increased from 16″ to 20″ and outboard (swung head) capacity from 29″ to 33″ (838mm), still with a 2HP DVR motor. (DVR = Digital Variable Reluctance)
There is the new remote control – wrist-mounted and also magnetic so can be attached near where you are working. On/off and speed control. Compatible with all Nova DVR lathes.
Big news, is the return of
The 5″ diameter chuck monster as the behemoth of the Nova Chuck range
Love that term “behemoth”, but not to be confused with the Polish blackened death metal band of the same name from Gdańsk
