I have had the cheap Nova (1624 belt) for 10+ years with no problem.
A main feature to me is the swivel headstock. I turn it out about 22.5° for all bowl, platter, box interiors. Saves a lot of reaching and the supplied tool rest is long enough without an outrigger.
I was going to check the price at Sears (linked above) but you have to go through all the “set up an account” c-rap to see the shipping. ToolsPlus is the same price with free shipping.
