While Nova doesn’t have swing of Laguna 18 inches it is has a longer bed. Shipping weight only a pound difference, both come in either 110 or 220 Volt models but Nova has 1 3/4 HP versus 1 1/2 HP for laguna 110 Volt version both have 220V models too.

Right now Laguna 110V & 220V models less expensive than Nova Galaxi at WoodCraft didn’t look anywhere else.

Would look at your access to wood & size will you be buying or harvesting your own? Is swing or distance between centers more important for projects you plan?

Bottom line either lathe will serve you well, regardless of projects you plan on just buy what you afford!
