I think either would work well for you.
I have the Nova 1624 and though you listed the swivel head as a con I would hate to be without it.
I use it at least 90% of the time when starting the inside with bowls, platters,...
Turned out to a about 22.5° it makes the swing (tool handle) much more comfortable than potentially bending over the ways.
No problem with alignment or locking down well.
