Based on my experience with Nova so far, I am about to order the Galaxi DVR 1644, at which point I will probably move the Comet to Finishing and Buffing duty - not because it isn't good enough for the turning, but because it is so good, I would hate to give it up.

Do you drill with it? If so how is the quill travel. Thanks for your reply.

Jet discounts. I know Jet has a 15% sale on Black Fri and another time during the year. Regardless CPO has no Jet1015VS in stock and was told by customer service that none are coming in this year. Any tips on where to get good price on a JWL1015VS...w/o tax and shipping. Thanks, Frank

it's the 600-3600rpm that has me interested.

There is life....CPO has the 1015vs in stock and I will order if I do not have to sign for it at delivery. I'm not home all day to wait for it. Its becomes a hassle.

I'd like to hear some delivery stories. The Jet 1221 I had shipped to my Florida home was a disaster. The packaging was real poor. The 1015vs to the same address was damaged(box) but the lathe was ok. I'm tempted to pick a lathe up at Woodcrafters so I can see the product is intact. It would cost me a hour ride and tax. But I'm back to the original problem of I cannot lift....and not sure if it'll fit in the trunk (2002 Mustang). I'd have to drop the top and leave on back seat.

Ordered.... ended up with the Jet1015vs. from CPO. Thanks for everyone's help. The high speed low to high was the biggest factor. And I do have a 1015vs at another location. I like it. No reason to experiment. Cost little more than I wanted to spend but I'll quit drinking and smoking for a while. Thanks for everyones help.

Great choice on the Jet 1015vs. I hope you like it as much as I like my Jet 1014vs. I don't think you can go wrong with your selection. Good luck and hope you get it shipped to you very soon.
Tim.

Should have it Weds 8/16. Just have to get a neighbor to help me get it down the steps and onto the bench. Little do they know they'll be getting a pen as a thanks. Also ordered drill chucks, a mandrel w/saver. The first set of pens on deck are the PSI Grenade & the Auto Rifle. I love this hobby. The fun is endless. And may I say thanks to IAP and it's members. I appreciate everyone's replies and how they conduct themselves. No sarcasm, smart azz posts or HiJacking. It's nice being on a dedicated forum. I have learned a lot since I came here...and growing.

Breaking in. Is it necessary to "break in" the lathe if only used for pen blanks. I did not do that to my other lathes...mainly because I did know to do that.
