NOVA Comet II™ Wood Lathe
Features at a Glance:
Add-On Bed Extension System
A lathe that meets your woodturning needs, your workshop space, or your budget. Each bed extension is 24.6” /625mm) in
length. This feature is appealing for many different reasons.
As a compact lathe (standard configuration), it is great for small turning(s) in small workshop spaces. It can also be used as
an extended bed lathe for those wanting to turn longer pieces. One additional bed extension increases the length to
41.1”/1044mm.
Speed Range
The Nova Comet II™ Wood Lathe has a 3-step Electronic Variable Speed range. One of the best in the industry for mini
lathe work. Low range: slower speeds from 250 RPM up to 680 RPM for larger spindle and bowl work. Medium range: from
530 RPM up to 1420 RPM for smaller items such as Pen work. Fast range: from 1380 RPM up to 4000 RPM for miniature
turning work. Most other mini lathes do not have this fast speed range for true miniature work. Electronic Variable Speed
allows you to quickly dial-in the correct speed for the job, material and conditions. In addition, you’re not limited to
potentially dangerous fixed-speed steps.
Reverse Option
The Nova Comet II™ Wood Lathe has the capability, at the flick of a switch, to change direction into reverse. This feature
enables the turner to sand with the lathe in reverse eliminating problem areas which cannot normally be sanded smooth in the
forward direction.
Optional Grinder Attachment
At last there is now a lathe which not only saves the turner having to buy a bench grinder or equivalent, but also allows the
turner to quickly touch-up chisels as they lose their cutting edge. The optional Versa turn Grinder Attachment on the Nova
Comet II™ Wood Lathe provides a safe, economical and practical way of keeping the edge on your tools.
Solid Construction
Well proven design. The critical components of the Nova Comet II™ Wood Lathe are made from cast-iron for strength, rigidity
and vibration reduction.

they should be removed from the lathe to prevent
accidental contact.
2.
BEWARE OF ATTACHMENTS IN OPERATION.
Care must be taken to not accidently come in contact
with the accessory attachments as it will be powered
whenever the spindle is rotating.
18. USE THE CORRECT LATHE TOOLS. Do not
use spindle turning chisels for faceplate mounted
work or vice versa. Spindle turning tools used
for faceplate turning may grab the work piece
and pull the chisel from your control.
3.
DO NOT MODIFY OR USE THE LATHE FOR USES
OTHER THAN FOR WHICH IT WAS INTENDED OR
DESIGNED.
19. WHEN ROUGHING STOCK do not jam the lathe
tool or chisel into work piece or take too big/deep
a cut.
4.
SEEK INSTRUCTION. If you are not thoroughly
familiar with the operation of wood lathes, obtain
advice from your supervisor, instructor, or other
qualified person. Instruction from a qualified person
is strongly recommended.
20. DO NOT POUND THE WORK PIECE onto
headstock drive (spur) center while attaching it to
the lathe. Pound the drive (spur) center into the
work piece with a soft mallet before installing it in
the headstock.
5.
DO NOT OPERATE THE LATHE until it is
completely assembled and installed.
6.
FOLLOW ELECTRICAL CODES. Make sure wiring
codes and recommended electrical connections are
followed and that the machine is properly grounded.
21. DO NOT USE THE TAILSTOCK to drive the
work piece onto the drive (spur) center when
turning between centers. Secure work between
the centers with light pressure from the tailstock
quill adjustment.
7.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Do not turn the lathe
“on” before clearing the lathe of all objects (tools,
scraps of wood, etc.). Keep the nearby area and
floor clear of debris.
8.
CHECK SET-UP with the power “Off”, examine the
set-up carefully and rotate the work piece by hand to
check clearances before turning “On” the power.
9.
DO NOT MAKE ADJUSTMENTS when the lathe or
work piece is turning. Make all adjustments with
power “Off”.
10. TIGHTEN ALL CLAMP HANDLES on the

operating the lathe.
11. EXAMINE THE WORK PIECE and glue joints before
turning to make sure it has no defects that would
cause it to break/split while turning.
12. USE THE LOWEST SPEED when turning a new or
unbalanced work piece.
13. TURN AT RECOMMENDED SPEED. Always
operate the lathe at the recommended speeds.
Consult this manual for suggested speeds.
14. ADJUST THE TOOL REST close to the work piece.
Before turning, rotate the stock by hand to make sure
it clears the tool rest. At intervals, stop the lathe and
readjust the tool rest.
15. KEEP THE TOOL ON THE TOOL REST. Tools
should remain on the Tool Rest whenever the tool is
engaged in the work piece.
16. REMOVE THE TOOL REST when sanding or
polishing so fingers do not get pinched.
17. DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into blade or
cutter only against the direction of rotation of
work piece.
22. FASTEN STOCK SECURELY BETWEEN
CENTERS. Make sure the tailstock is locked
before turning “On” the power.
23. NEVER LOOSEN TAILSTOCK spindle or
tailstock while work piece is turning.
24. CORRECTLY USE THE FACEPLATE. When
faceplate turning, make sure work piece is
securely fastened to the faceplate and that the
appropriate size faceplate is used to support the
work piece. Any screw fasteners must not
interfere with the turning tool at the finished
dimension of the work piece. Rough cut the work
piece as close as possible to the finished shape
before installing it on the faceplate.
25. DO NOT OPERATE THE LATHE IF DAMAGED
OR FAULTY. If any part(s) of your lathe is
missing, damaged or broken, in any way, or any
electrical component fails, shut “Off” the lathe
and disconnect the lathe from the power supply.

Setting Up Your Workshop:
Workshop Requirements
Consideration
Recommendation
Lathe
Location:
Locate the Nova Comet II Wood Lathe close to a power source in
an area with good lighting. If you are using it in a workshop, other
machines should not interfere with the operation of the lathe.
Lighting:
Your room or workshop should have adequate lighting. The work
area of the lathe should be well lit and there should not be shadows
cast upon your work. If possible, locate near a window. A
moveable spotlight may be helpful.
Electrical:
The Nova Comet II Wood Lathe requires an appropriate outlet
nearby to power the motor. Wiring and outlets should adhere to
local electrical codes. If in doubt, seek advice from an electrician.
Minimize use of extension cords.
Ventilation:
Your room or workshop should be adequately ventilated. The
degree of ventilation will vary based on the size of the room and the
amount of work done. The Nova Comet II Wood Lathe does not
normally create a big dust problem, however, the use of dust
collectors, masks and filters will minimize the risks to your health.
Lathe Stand Recommendations
A sturdy/rigid stand is desirable so that the Nova Comet II Wood Lathe can deliver optimum performance.
The larger the size of your turnings, the greater the importance of the lathe stand. However, for many
smaller projects, simply mounting the Comet II Wood Lathe on a bench top or table will suffice. For
security, it should be clamped or bolted in place.
Consideration
Recommendation
Lathe Height
from Floor:
The height of the stand should be located with the centerline of
the lathe spindle at the elbow height of the turner.
Stand Top:
The stand top should be flat so the lathe does not twist when it
is sitting on top. If the lathe is to be bolted down and the feet
are removed, the lathe should ideally be mounted on spacer
blocks to allow extra clearance for the motor. Check for any
gaps between the lathe base and stand top before bolting it
down. Shim and prepare stand as necessary.
Stand Weight:
The stand should have enough weight and mass so it doesn't
move when turning large work pieces. In addition, a heavier
stand can absorb vibration.
Stand Legs:
The stand should sit level on the floor and not rock side-to side
or front-to back.

1.
Unpack the lathe and its components from the shipping package.
2.
Clean any parts coated with the rust preventative compound with a cloth moistened with a petroleumbased solvent or cleanser, such as Kerosene or Mineral Spirits. After all the parts have been
cleaned, coat the lathe bed with paste wax or a dry silicon spray.
3.
Insert the Tool Rest into the Tool Slide and secure it with the lock handle.
4.
Assemble the Tailstock Handle and quill lock as below.
5.
Place the Drive Spur Center into the Headstock and the Live Center into the Tailstock. Gently slide
the tailstock up to the Headstock until the two points nearly touch. They should align. If not, see
page 25 for alignment procedures. Also consider loosening the bolts holding the headstock to the
bed and aligning the headstock so the two points, head and tailstocks, align vertically and
horizontally.
6.
Screw the LHB (Hand wheel) onto the outboard end of the Spindle
Assembling the Tailstock:
Installing the Hand Wheel Handle
1. Insert the Hand Wheel handle
screw into the Hand Wheel
Handle.
2. Using a flat head screw
driver, screw the hand wheel
handle onto the rear face of
the Hand Wheel and tighten.
Installing the lock Handle
3. Align the quill so that the slot
is facing upward and parallel
with the top of the tailstock.
4. Install the locking handle into
the top of the tailstock so that
it will enter into the slot of the
quill.
Make sure the locking handle is in the
correct position by trying to rotate the
quill.
If it cannot be rotated, the locking
handle and quill are in the correct
positions.
118-0413-003
11
Adding a Bed Extension:
Each cast-iron Bed Extension adds
24.6”/625mm to the lathe's length.
1.
Clean the joining ends of both
bed sections with a petroleumbased solvent. Make sure there
are no dents or burrs on either of
the mating surfaces. Remove
burrs and high spots with a
smooth file.
2.
Place the two mating faces
together and install the Four M10
cap screws. Note: only install
finger tight at this time.
!
Warning!
Do not use a metal hammer to pound on the Bed Extension. This may damage
the bed, affect accuracy and tailstock action. In addition, it may prevent you from
adding another Bed Extension.
3.
Move the tailstock until it is on top of the area where the Bed Extension face meets the Lathe Bed
face (see illustration). The Bed Extension may need to be manipulated up, down or sideways in
order for the tailstock to fit.
4.
With the Lathe Bed and Bed Extension in alignment, tighten the Tailstock Locking Handle down in its
current position.
5.
Tighten the two M10 cap screws that were previously installed.
6.
Check to ensure that the Tailstock moves freely over the mating joint and also over the full length of
the add-on Bed Extension. If there is a ridge between the two mating surfaces, repeat steps 1-5
again.
Connecting the Comet II Wood Lathe to a Power Source:
The electric motor, switch, cord and controllers are supplied with the Comet II Wood Lathe. The plug must
be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with local
electrical codes.
The power cord should be a 3-wire, with a grounding conductor and a grounding pin.
!
Warning!
Improper connection of the motor can result in a risk of electrical shock.
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, the cord should be grounded. Use the correct wire size for the
extension cord, for a given cord length, to avoid power loss and over-heating.
IMPORTANT: For best protection of the lathe, use a surge-protected plug outlet rated to at
least 15 amps. Ground Fault Interrupters (GFI's) or Residual Current Detectors (RCD's) are
helpful and are a recommended protection device for any power tool.
118-0413-003

Using the Nova Comet II Wood Lathe:
The Variable-Speed DC (Direct Current) Motor
!
The DC motor contains brushes that contact the commutator. It is very important to
allow between 30 to 45 minutes of 'run-in' time of these brushes before any turning or significant
load is applied. This should be done in the higher rpm range. A clicking or swishing noise in the
motor is normal which will reduce as the brushes wear in. During normal operation, 5 minutes of
warm-up may also be required on cold weather days.
The motor is one of the most important elements in the lathe. The Comet II Wood Lathe uses a high
quality and powerful DC motor to provide the best turning performance. It has been pre-wired in such a
way that it allows the lathe spindle to rotate in a counter-clockwise direction when facing the spindle.
We use a Permanent Magnet DC Motor (PMDC) which produces the most torque for conventional motors.
The motor is nominally rated at 3/4 HP (550watts), however, can produce a higher output.
Belt and Variable Speed Range:
Coupled with the high torque DC motor, we also use a 3-step pulley to provide optimum power bands.
The label on the controller displays the ranges as 1, 2 and 3. With the unit facing the operator, Band 1
is the left most drive-belt position for the slower turning. Band 2 is in the middle and Band 3 on the
right.

Direction of Lathe Rotation:
The “ON/OFF” toggle switch on the motor controller has three positions. “ON Forward”, “OFF” and “ON
Reverse”. To use the lathe, the switch must be in either of the two “ON” positions.
Changing Speeds:
1. When starting, set the Variable Speed Knob to about ¼ of the speed range and slowly increase the
speed to the desired RPM.
2. Starting the motor at the lowest possible setting may cause it to fail due to loading. However, the
lowest setting can be achieved by reducing the RPM once the motor is in motion.
3. Rapid RPM changes from low up to high speed are not recommended.
Changing Belt Positions:
1. To change the belt position,
ensure the machine is switched
“Off” and unplugged.
2. Unlock the Belt Guard by
unscrewing the guard lock knob
(or guard lock fastener in some
markets). Then lift the front of the
guard upward.
3. Free the motor by loosening
the Motor Lock Handle.
4. Lift the Motor Mount Handle
slightly to get the belt off of the
pulley. The motor adjustment
range (up/down) is approximately
3/4" (20mm).
5. Install the belt on the desired
step, top and bottom.
6. Tension the belt by pressing down on the Motor Mount Handle. Pressing down with 2 fingers or
the thumb will provide adequate pressure. Slightly higher pressure may be required for larger work.
Caution: Too much pressure on the motor pulley will damage the motor bearings, break the belt or
motor shaft.
7. When the correct tension has been made and while holding the motor at the correct tension,
tighten the Motor Lock Handle.
Caution: Don't use too much pressure on the Motor Lock Handle. - It needs to be tightened a little
more than finger tight.
8. Lower Belt Guard to the closed position and re-lock the Cover.

Headstock:
The Headstock houses the motor pulley, headstock pulley, bearings, a belt and the spindle. The
Headstock Spindle accepts centers and accessories with an No. 2 Morse taper (#2 MT). The thread
size or pitch is 1" 8 TPI, RH.
Using the Spindle Index:
The Spindle Index Lock is located on
the back of the Headstock. This
locking system works by inserting a
pin into one of 12 notches, 30
degrees apart, in the pulley attached
to the spindle.
!
Warning!
Make sure the Index Pin is out
before operating the lathe.
The Index Pin should be lifted
into the unlocked indentation
in the knob to prevent it from
engaging while the spindle is
turning.
To lock the spindle:
1. Turn “Off” the lathe and wait for
the spindle to stop.
2. Pull the Index Knob and turn it
until the “LOCK’ is upright and
the pin drops into the hole. To
lock the spindle, the Locking Pin
must engage into a Notch in the
Spindle Pulley.
To unlock the spindle:
1. Pull the Index Knob and turn
it until the “UNLOCK” is
upright.
2. Check to verify that the
spindle can rotate freely and
that the Index Knob has
dropped into unlocked
indentation to prevent it from
engaging while the spindle is
turning.

loosen the Quill Lock Knob and turn the
Hand wheel clockwise or counterclockwise.
Lock the Quill in place with the Quill Lock
Knob.
3. The Tailstock Quill accepts centers and
accessories with a No. 2 Morse Taper (#2
MT). To install a taper, use a quick, firm
action by hand. Do not pound the taper in.
4. To remove a taper, simply wind the quill
into the Tailstock until the taper is ejected.
Or insert the Knock Out Bar through the
Tailstock Quill hole. While holding the
taper so it doesn’t fall, lightly tap it out.
5. The Tailstock Quill is hollow allowing you
to bore holes through turnings while a
hollow center is used.
Adjusting the Tailstock for Turning Between Centers:
1.
Mount the Drive (spur) Center to the work piece and insert the Drive (spur) Center into the
Headstock Spindle, as described overleaf under "Using a Drive Spur Center".
!
Warning!
Do not use the Tailstock Quill adjustment to drive the work piece into the
Drive (spur) Center. This can create an unsafe and loose work piece. In
addition, could prematurely damage the Quill.
2.
Mount the live center into the Tailstock Quill using a quick, firm action by
hand.
3.
While holding the work piece, slide the Tailstock to meet the work piece and
lock the Tailstock in place. Turn the Hand wheel to apply light holding
pressure to the work piece. The work piece should turn easily by hand, yet
not be loose. Tighten the Quill Lock Handle.
118-0413-003

Using a Drive (spur) Center:
1. Mark centers as shown in the
adjacent drawings. Mount the Drive
(spur) Center to the work piece as
shown and then insert the Drive
(spur) Center and work piece into the
Headstock Spindle.
!
Warning!
Do not pound work piece onto
the Drive (spur) Center while it
is mounted in the Headstock as
you may damage the
Headstock.
For hardwoods drill centers and
saw diagonals for
spur drive center
2. To remove the Drive (spur) Center,
insert a 10 mm (3/8-inch) diameter
steel rod through the Headstock
Spindle hole. While holding the center
so it doesn’t fall, lightly tap it out.
Improving the Performance of your Lathe:
To get the best performance out of your lathe it is a good practice to keep your chisels and tools
sharp. This can be achieved by regularly grinding the cutting edges on a grinder with the aid of a
sharpening guide. Keeping the edges sharp significantly reduces the load on the motor allowing
for better output. Consequently, turning conditions are improved and cleaner finishes are
achievable.
For improved turning, it is recommended having wood removed in shavings as opposed to
chips. The position of your tool to the work-piece is very important in achieving this.
It is recommended to have an angle between the tool tip and the work piece. This angle allows
shavings of wood to be 'scooped' off in strips. Also note that the type of wood and grain will affect
the removal of material from your work piece.
To gain maximum torque from the motor, it is advised that the belt be ran on the smallest motor
pulley diameter. Use the middle step for other general work.
Learning to Turn:
The last section outlined some simple guidelines and recommendations to get you started. However,
the art and technique of turning is a subject beyond the scope of this operating manual. It is
recommended that you receive hands-on instruction and/or refer to books and videos on the subject.

General Maintenance:
Interval
Maintenance
After each use:
Clean the work area and lathe. Vacuum scraps and dust from the
inside of the Headstock, between the Lathe Bed Rails, and under the
Tool Slide and Tailstock. Do not neglect this especially if the work
piece was 'green' with excess moisture. Failure to clean-up after green
turning can cause rust marks and pitting of the surfaces of the lathe.
Monthly:
Wax exposed cast-iron parts with a good quality paste wax or dry
silicone spray, especially the bed rails. Buff out the wax thoroughly.
Check tightness of nuts and bolts; especially the grub screw (set screw)
on the motor pulley and the lathe mounting bolts.
Lubricate with one or two drops of light-weight oil, Index pin Shaft, and
the Tool Slide Camshaft (remove plastic plug) and the Tool Slide
Camshaft Bores.

21
4.
Remove Circlip 1 from the
Spindle.
5.
Knockout tool requirements:
The knockout tool can be any
round shaft less between 14mm &
24mm (9/16" & 1").
An ideal knock out tool can be
turned to dimensions in drawing to
right.
6.
Using the knock out tool and a
small mallet or hammer, tap out
the spindle from Spindle end A
until Circlip 2 is easily accessible.
1.
Remove Circlip 2 from its groove and let it sit on the spindle's splined section. Continue to tap out
the spindle until Spindle end A is approximately 15 - 20mm (3/4") from the inside of Bearing 1.
118-0413-003
22
7.
Remove the old belt and place the new belt over the Spindle End A and on to Pulley 2.
NOTE: Make sure the new Belt, Pulley 2 and Circlip 2 are all on the spindle.
8.
Using a wooden mallet or plastic
hammer, start to tap the Spindle
back into the headstock.
NOTE: Before Spindle end A enters
Bearing 1, double check that the
new Belt, Pulley 2 and Circlip 2 are
on the spindle.
9.
As the Spindle end A starts to enter
Bearing 1, move Pulley 2 and
Circlip 2 back along the Spindle.
Insert Circlip 2 back into its original
grove (the second circlip grove from
Spindle end A) and continue to tap
the Spindle in until Circlip 2 meets
Bearing 1.
10. Reinstall Circlip 1.
11. On the Spindle there is a small
horizontal grove for the Pulley 2
Grub Screw to sit in. Align the grub
screw hole in Pulley 2 with this
horizontal grove and re-align the
steps of Pulley 2 with Pulley 1.
Insert Pulley 2 Grub Screw in to
Pulley 2 and tighten snug.
12. Install the belt on the slowest speed
steps, tension correctly and tighten
the motor lock handle
13. Lower and lock the cover and test
the new belt at the slowest speed at
first, to make sure Pulley 2 is not
slipping on the Spindle and that the
two pulleys are aligned correctly.
If it is slipping or the belt comes off
or starts to work its way off, repeat
step 13.
Otherwise the lathe is now ready for
use.

Troubleshooting Guide:
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
Excessive vibration.
Out of balance, or large work piece. Reduce the lathe speed to the
lowest speed possible and turn the work piece to a true circle.
Work piece is not held in the center. Check work piece mounting and
correct.
Work piece is not secure or held tight enough. Check work piece
mounting and correct.
Lathe incorrectly bolted to stand or bench. Refer to this manual for
Lathe Stand recommendations.
Stand or bench not well constructed, too light or standing incorrectly on
the floor. Make sure the stand is solidly constructed with leveling
screws or feet.
Over tensioning of belt is a primary cause of vibration. The Drive Belt is
running badly, over tensioned, or damaged. Apply a spray-on belt
dressing on the belt grooves, readjust belt tension, or replace the belt.
Motor Pulley is not in correct alignment with the Headstock Pulley.
Loosen the Motor Pulley grub screw and align the pulleys. Ensure
Motor Pulley grub screw is tight once in position.
Headstock Pulley or Motor Pulley is loose. Check that the pulley set
screws are tight.
The Headstock Belt Guard is loose or rattling. Check that the Belt
Guard Lock is tight.
Ensure motor adjustment locknut and M5 lock nut are tight.
Motor vibrates. Many single-phase motors produce minor noise or
vibrations and usually cannot be altered. Sometimes new brushes take
time to wear in and a reduction in noise can be noticed after a few
hours of running.
Faceplate or chuck
running out of true:
Dirt build-up on the rear of the Faceplates or Chucks. Clean off all
build-up and dirt. Faceplates and Chucks must mount securely against
the inner bearing ring surface of the spindle.
Turning tools not
sliding smoothly
across Tool rest:
Damaged surface on Tool rest Face caused by sharp edged tools. File
the Tool Rest using a fine tooth file and polish with extra fine
sandpaper. Also remove the sharp edges from the corners of the
turning tools.
Spur drive center or
live center not holding
into the spindle taper
or quill taper when
turning:
Small end of the Morse taper is damaged due to dropping or hitting. File
or polish away any damage. Check that inside of tapers have not been
scored.
Grease or oil inside of the Morse Tapers. Wipe clean the inside of the
Tapers.
Insufficient pressure when installing the center. Use a quick, firm action
by hand, to install a taper. Do not tap in using any solid object.
118-0413-003

Troubleshooting Guide Continued:
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
Tailstock and
headstock center not
lining up correctly:
Bed incorrectly bolted to stand causing twist. Ensure stand and lathe
are correctly assembled.
Tailstock base is not flush with bed. Check for debris on both surfaces.
Motor doesn't run:
Check for compromised electrical cords. Remove plug from power
outlet socket. Check an appliance that you know works in the power
outlet socket. If it fails, check the breaker/fuse in breaker/fuse box
corresponding to that socket. If socket is operating, then the Control
Unit of the Comet II Wood Lathe may have failed. Contact your nearest
service center for a replacement.
Tailstock hand wheel
hard to turn or will not
turn:
Quill lock may be locked. Unlock the Quill Lock. If necessary, lightly
tap a block of wood against the Hand wheel Handle. Tap the handle in
a clockwise direction as viewed from the Tailstock end.
Build-up of dust and/or wood resin on the Quill or inside of the Hand
wheel thread. Remove, clean, and lubricate the Quill and Tailstock as
described under "Cleaning the Tailstock".
The Quill has been retracted too far and is locked against the Hand
wheel.
Tailstock quill
hard to move:
Quill Lock may be locked. Unlock the Quill Lock.
The Quill may be damaged. Turn the handle to expose the Quill and
check for marks along the Quill, especially on the edges of the slotted
keyway. Remove any high spots with a smooth file and test the Quill
travel. Replace the Quill, if necessary.
Tailstock not sliding
smoothly on bed ways:
Dirty bed ways and underside of Tailstock Body. Clean bed ways and
underside of Tailstock Body with a petroleum-based solvent.
Tailstock binds:
The inside of the bed has a high spot. File the area with a smooth flat
file until the Tailstock moves freely.
The Tailstock Adjustment Plate has a rough spot or a burr. Remove the
Tailstock and file the Plate with a smooth flat file.
Tailstock jumps where
bed sections join:
The machined flat surfaces are not flush. File the area with a smooth
flat file until the Tailstock moves freely.
