Product Information:

This is a great little geared-action chuck, with powerful performance for its size and built to the same standards as the Super Nova and Titan Chucks. 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. The G3 accepts all of the Teknatool’s accessory jaws, although only those designed for smaller work are recommended. The promo Nova Chuck Kit includes 50mm Jaws, 35mm Bowl Jaws, Pin Jaws, and Mini Cole Jaws.
  • Chuck Body (without insert); 50mm Jaws, 35mm Bowl Jaws, Pin Jaws, and Mini Cole Jaws
  • T-handle Chuck Key
  • Woodworm Screw
  • Fasteners
  • Inserts sold separately

    Comments about Nova G3 Chuck Package :

    It's wasn't clear to me that an adaptor was needed. A table was presented that had data in it that wasn't helpful and all. I had to call and get the store to decide what adaptor I needed. They had one and graciously mailed it to me.

    Comments about Nova G3 Chuck Package :

    I researched for a long time finally narrowed it down to Nova G3 & Super Nova. Sent off an email to Nova to get advise as to the best compatible Nova for my lathe. Nova VP responded with G3 would be best. I took advantage of Woodcraft's sale and have not looked back. I use it everyday. FANTASTIC.

    Comments about Nova G3 Chuck Package :

    Can't go wrong with this Chuck for the price when it includes all the additional jaws. Remember you still have to buy an insert, however, you still come out ahead. Do not really have a need for all the jaws at this point in time, but nice to have when I do. This is a must have for the Midi.

    Comments about Nova G3 Chuck Package :

    All of the jaws had severe burrs from manufacture which was easily remedied. But they do not run true as they should .010 at the chuck is not acceptable. Still a good deal for the "special package" price.

    Comments about Nova G3 Chuck Package :

    The biggest problem with this chuck is that it makes several other of my chucks obsolete. This is my first gear action chuck (my others are all bar operated) and it's really a joy to use. I was concerned at first about tightening it enough, but it easily has held a 7" dia x 8" long chunk of green ash for turning, with the 50mm jaws. If I HAD to complain about something, I'd say that it would have been nice to have a larger (say, 75 mm or 100 mm) jaw set included instead of the 35mm bowl or pin jaw set. The larger jaw sets are pretty expensive, but on the other hand, this is a premium chuck, so I'm not really objecting too much.

    Nova G3 Chuck & Jaw Promotional Package

    Comments about Nova G3 Chuck Package :

    this is a great chuck. the promo pack had 3 jaw sets i had planned on getting anyway. i have 2 chucks now, i have one for jaws and one for cole jaw plates, a time saver. No cons to this item. this chuck has the T handle for jaw adjusting where my older chuck has 2 separate handles plus the 3rd handle for the spindle lock. not a big deal, but, i have only 2 handles now. product packaging was very good and metal protection was top notch. product directions were good but quality of paper and print was a bit lacking with the current state of technology for documentation. Using the chuck was straight forward and performed as expected and specified. It is a welcome addition to my lathe and recomend it to anyone looking for a chuck for a lathe in the 5" to 16" over the bed size.

    This one purchase allows a turner to do a large variety of projects. The Cole jaws are great for finishing the bottom of bowls.
