Nova 5/8" Plain Insert
Teknatool uses an easy and inexpensive insert/adaptor system on all its NOVA chucks (apart from the Compac). The insert has different lathe spindle thread sizes internally, and simply screws into...
- Adapts any NOVA chuck to almost any lathe spindle at low cost.
- The insert/adaptor versions of NOVA chucks all use the same insert/adaptor system
Special note for Shopsmith Users
Whereas this adapter (Teknatool PN 'IFNS') works ok with the Shopsmith Mark V, any potential buyer with a Shopsmith should be aware that there is a newer and better adapter from Teknatool with Teknatool PN 'ISNS'. The 'ISNS' adapter has a deeper shoulder and uses a bigger set screw which is angled to match the taper on the Shopsmith output shaft. These features are particularily important with the PowerPro equipped Mark Vs and Mark VII. To repeat, the 'IFNS' adapter works fine with the Shopsmith (I had one for several years with my G3 chuck). But the 'ISNS' adapter is just a bit better.
Always Great Products
All products that I have purchased from Woodcraft over the Internet and at the Minneapolis store were TOP quality products. All of my transactions with Woodcraft have been good transactions. I have no complaints, only strong recommendations.
Exactly what I needed
The adapter was required to mount my new chuck on my Total Shop. It was backordered but arrived when estimated. It is exactly what is needed.
Just what I needed to mount the chuck
Perfectly adapted my nova chuck to the Legacy REVO ornamental mill.
