Product Information:

The newest evolution of the classic Nova Chuck is finally available - the SuperNova2! Includes 50mm jaw set, T-bar, Allen wrenches, woodworm screw, and manual.

The newest evolution of the classic Nova Chuck is finally available - the SuperNova2! Its nickel plated body is made from high grade K1045 steel machined to allow closer tolerances. Its patented gearing system delivers incredible gripping power and is over a third faster than the original SuperNova. With SuperNova2 gripping power you'll find yourself turning longer, more delicate stems. Large, rough and uneven work that you couldn't handle before can now be turned with greater security. The SuperNova2 requires only one hand to operate using a ball nosed Allen key with a large easy grip handle (included). It's quick to tighten and requires much less effort. The ball nose allows the handle to operate at an angle while tightening the chuck. The SuperNova2 has a fully sealed heavy duty backing plate made from Duracon 25 composite which is reinforced with stranded glass fiber. Backing plate design incorporates a 24 division index for future indexing accessories. All of the original Nova Chuck accessories, jaws and inserts are 100% compatible with the SuperNova2! The unique and user friendly features of this chuck prove it was designed by and for woodturners. Diameter of chuck is 3-7/8", depth is 3-3/8", weight 5-1/2 lb. Includes 50mm jaw set, T-bar, Allen wrenches, woodworm screw and manual. Requires a threaded body insert to fit your lathe.

    Comments about Teknatool SuperNova2 Chuck :

    Difficult to change jaws. You would think for the price you would get a good T-wrench to change the jaw screws,instead of a cheap short hex wrench. The jaw screws seem cheap also. Since buying I have seen other chucks some more expensive, some less, all as good or better. Must rate Nova2 just average.

    Have several SN2 chucks now to avoid changing jaws for different projects. Holds well and easy to use. Use for holding tenon and in expansion mode. Good value for the money.

    Comments about Teknatool SuperNova2 Chuck :

    This is my second SuperNova2. The first one was purchased a couple years ago and they are very similar. When they are on sale, as periodically happens here at Woodcraft, they're a good bargain. Mostly I turn small to medium bowls as a hobby, selling some here and there. Turning is a nice break from making cabinets and furniture for a living. A few bowls have popped off the chuck but it was my fault for being too aggressive with the gouge. There are two very minor annoyances with these chucks. First, the spur gears you tighten with the Allen wrench tend to rattle at slower speeds. I suppose I could quiet them with some heavy grease but that would attract dust. The second is a problem with concentricity. When I turn a bowl around for hollowing, from the worm screw to being gripped by the chuck jaws, the exterior of the bowl is slightly off center. it seems the jaw positioning isn't perfect. Maybe all chucks have these characteristics? I don't know since I'm relatively new to turning. Neither is a big deal.

    I use this with my Rikon mini lathe and the combination works great. Changing jaws is a quick process and the dual screw attachment is very secure. The ball end on the tightening wrench is a convenient design element.

    Comments about Teknatool SuperNova2 Chuck :

    Easy to use and holds the wood very securely. I use it in the contraction mode most of the time but it holds well expanding in a recess also. It is easy to change jaw sets for different size work. I highly recommend it.

    This is the second SuperNova II chuck that I purchased. I got tired of changing jaws. I am very dissappointed in the quality of the second chuck. The machine work is of poor quality which makes it difficult to operate.

    Bought a second one while they were on sale $60 off. Now I don't have to mess with screws changing from standard to 100mm jaws.
