The following factors should be considered when choosing which NOVA chuck best suits your needs:
– Ease of use and power of clamping
– Size of wood/project
– Spindle Size Required
With its rugged construction, minimal vibration and ease of use, Nova G3 has become a favorite chuck for small and medium sized lathes. It is available here in value pack with two additional sets of jaws - 4 "jaws and pin jaws - in addition to the standard 2" jaws.
Although designed for Nova Comet II Midi lathes (no. 46457, sold separately), it can be used on any 1 "x8 TPI thread lathes. When used on an irreversible lathe, the fixing screws must be removed. The G3 is an autocentering chuck, so all four chuck are closed at the same time by turning a key.
With only one hand to close the chuck, your other hand is free to align the stock. At just 1.79'' inches long, the compact G3 helps maximize the distance between your centers and reduces stress on the spindle. This is not a plug-in chuck. The insert/adapter cannot be used to change the thread.
Safety Advisory! Only use authentic NOVA accessories on your NOVA chuck. Using non genuine NOVA and copies of accessories could lead to operation and safety issues and will void our market leading warranty. NOVA accessories are designed for use only on NOVA Chucks. Do not use on any other chuck.
