Last post on this was in October, so I thought I’d try to stir up the ant hill again. I am in an upgrade cycle and seem to have zeroed in on the Nova Saturn. Any other new owners out there who care to comment? I am especially interested in the durability of the blister switches.

Also, I called Nova to get the exact footprint dimensions since I am space limited laterally, and along the way the Customer Service rep said that the “Saturn is exclusive to Woodcraft and that they (Woodcraft) get them direct from the manufacturer and don’t come through us”. In spite of that, she was able to answer my question. I can’t seem to find the Saturn through any other outlet. Anybody know anything on this score?

Finally, does anybody know when/if Woodcraft puts Nova lathes, and specifically this lathe on sale?

Thanks in advance for any light you can shed…...
