The NOVA G3 Woodturning Direct Threaded (Non-insert) 1″ x 8TPI LH/RH is a 4 Jaw self-centering reversible geared chuck. The strong but lightweight body has less overhang which is perfect for smaller lathe spindles. The small 1.79″ body length delivers less overhang from the spindle than the larger geared chucks – the SuperNova2 Chuck and the Nova Titan chuck, reducing stress on smaller lathe spindles. With unique NOVA features such as Auto Stop, Copper composite Jaw Slides, Woodworm Screw, Comfortable T Bar Handle and 2″ Jaws as standard, this chuck is fully featured. Powerful Tuff Lock™ gearing with precise, hardened action delivers incredibly smooth strength for a solid, vibration free performance. Enhanced Jaw Gearing and Reverse Lock features that ensure this NOVA G3 Comet II Reversible chuck will remain engaged and locked on the spindle for use in forward and reverse. For other G3 Chucks, see the Insert Type and the M33 Type.
