Strong and Stable. Buys a little extra length for
Liked the idea of allowing a little more length on my mini lathe. But this is no "little" chuck. It's heavy, strong and accurate, just like the bigger Nova chucks. Takes all the Nova jaw sets I've tried. It is dead-on center and balance. Tightens/loosens with concentric ring action, with multiple holes for the two round bars. If you pick close holes you can tighten them with one hand. (like pliers) Note that this comes with an integral 1"-8tpi thread build in, and I don't think it can be switched for a different size insert. Definitely very happy with it.
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.
great product a great price
This is a great mini chuck... I use it to turn machineable wax for prototypeing.
Great lathe addition
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.
The chuck is a older model but is OK for my use.
It's a fine piece of machinery
Just What I expected from Teknatools!
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.
i would buy again
works just fine
Very Good product
I Like the product
Nova for Delta
So far I have been pleased with this chuck. It runs true and holds tight. I look forward to moving up to larger projects.
nice price, nice tool
it works great on the vases and small bowls i make
Great product well made.
Good mid sized chuck, that is well machined and very reliable.
great little chuck
this chuck is great for turning small projects. i have had up to a 9 1/2" diameter wood blank on it with no problems.
great little chuck
this is a great little chuck. it handles the job well.
Built like a Mack Truck!!!
I wish it didn't need the two "sticks" to adjust the jaws, then it would be more effective in use, as it is, it is a little awkward to adjust until you get used to the system.
As good as expected
A well-balanced and precise chuck
