Product Information:

Ideal for mini, midi, and smaller lathes or for smaller turnings on a large lathe. The Nova Precision Midi Chuck is packed with features and uses the same accessories as the Nova, SuperNova, SuperNova2 and the Nova Titan Chucks (without the need to use an adaptor plate as required with older Compac Chucks). Fast action, only one turn to tighten makes it ideal for production turning of smaller pieces. Comes standard with 50mm jaws (automatic jaw safety stop) and includes a Woodworm screw. Ideal for bowl work up to 12" in diameter and 3" to 4" deep. Body is 3-7/16" in diameter, 2-3/8" deep and weighs 2.9 lb.

    Good chuck but I'm no fan of Tommy Bars

    Good chuck, holds smaller pieces well. Used primarily my mini lathe but have turned 10" bowls with no issues. Am not a fan of the Tommy bars as I only have 2 hands. Using the tail stock helps hold the stock when tightening but a scroll chuck works much better.

    Comments about Nova 1" x 8 TPI Precision Midi Chuck Package :

    I'm glad I bought this chuck instead of putting out $150 or more for another brand. It's exactly as described and I have no problems clamping a spigot with single hand use. I've yet to turn an 8" plus bowl but I'm confident it'll hold the work just fine. I'm sure I'll buy another chuck some day that costs more and has different features but this is the way to go if you don't want to save for 3 to 4 months just to get the glamour chuck. Great first chuck to get started with turning.

    Comments about Nova 1" x 8 TPI Precision Midi Chuck Package :

    Applicable to most of my the turning projects and highly adaptable to all Nova jaws. I will eventually buy several of these chucks and assemble them with most populars jaws to save time in setting up the chuck for each project.
