Thanks again for all the input. I do appreciate it.

I only saw the Reeves drive on the 14” Jet, and it also wasn’t reversible, so I eliminated it.

The Nova lists at 450#, and the Jet at 350#, so if weight is an issue, it should be for both. The Laguna lists at 570#.

I do like the idea I can use the Nova on 110V or 220V. I don’t have a 220 outlet in the right place in my shop; I can easily run one, but if I don’t have to, that’s not a bad thing. I can us it at 1.75hp and run 220 if I feel I need the extra 0.25hp.

I’m warming up to the Nova idea, and have cooled off a tad on the Jet. I think it may just come down to what goes on sale first.
