Product Information:

Designed for mini, midi and smaller lathes with up to a 14" diameter swing, this chuck's small size and weight minimizes the load on smaller spindles and bearings and provides powerful performance for its size! Built to the same standards as the SuperNova2 and Titan chucks. Accepts all of Teknatool's accessory jaws. However, only those designed for smaller work are recommended. Includes an automatic jaw safety stop to keep the jaw slides from falling out. Jaw slides from iron composite impregnated with copper, which has outstanding qualities as an anti-seize and low friction agent. Chuck body is approximately 3-3/8" diameter, depth is 1-3/4" and weight is only 3 lbs. Handles up to 14" diameter bowls and turnings with up to a 6" length spigot when using the standard 50mm jaws. Includes chuck body, woodworm screw, 50mm jaws, T-handled chuck key, manual and fasteners.

    Comments about NOVA G3 Chuck Without Threaded Insert :

    I bought this chuck about a year ago. I love the easy one hand geared chuck. Took me a couple times to remember it was reverse thread so I tighted the devil out of it trying to get it loose. No problem the chuck is built like a tank. Won't let loose of your work piece. I feel much safer. I got it as a kit with several jaw sets and I have no regrets.

    Comments about NOVA G3 Chuck Without Threaded Insert :

    This is my 2nd chuck, finally a REAL chuck. And it doesn't use Tommy bars. The chucking is precise and simple. I have enjoyed every minute of operation. I will buy more jaws. So far I have used it to make several little boxes - 1.5"-2" in diameter. This chuck is definately the right tool for me.

    Comments about NOVA G3 Chuck Without Threaded Insert :

    Great tool, and committing to the G3 gets you into a great brand and system. My G3 worked great for about a week and then the T handle just ripped. Yes it is solid metal, but the casting was bad (assumed) and there must have been a hairline crack. one time applying "normal" torque to check a piece of wood, and the thing broke in two. My local store went to great lengths to get me a new one quickly, and i was only down for a few days. I see this as a fluke in the quality control, but don't blame Nova or Woodcraft. all is well, and i am back in service. Thanks to the Orlando store, those folks are great.
