Supernova2 Chuck (with 50mm Jaws)

R2,599.00  R2,300.00

This SuperNova2 chuck is a key operated, four jaw, self centering scroll chuck. This means that you don't need to be exact in your measurements for holding, and this design feature allows you flexibility in both the expanding and contracting modes. The four jaw design firmly grips both round and square wood. This powerful and solid chuck is perfect for use on lathes with up to 20"/508mm swing. A top-quality general purpose geared chuck for a majority of users.

Key Features:
Scroll: Precision investment cast in high tensile carbon steel and hardened to exact tolerance after heat treatment, to ensure long life and better wear resistance.

The special Tuff LockTM enhanced jaw gearing system is designed with a wide, open formed tooth that gives a fast, smooth action and unshakeable grip. This extra holding strength and stability decreases any vibration - you can extend much longer, from small delicate stems through to large rugged pieces.
Body: Precision machined in one operation from a solid steel block for high accuracy. Made from high quality K1045 medium tensile machine steel for optimum strength and wear. A polished self metal finish allows for closer tolerances and accuracy.
NOVA Smart Design: Jaw fixing profile is compatible across all NovaTM chucks. All NOVA Chucks use the same Jaw fixing profile, which means that all appropriate accessory jaws can be fitted across the range to any NOVA chuck. Only NOVA has this unique interchangeability. You don't have to change your accessories if you upgrade or change your NOVA chuck. You only need to invest in one set of accessories, saving you money.
High Tech Composite Jaw Slides with Auto-stop: Made with high tech copper fused steel for maximum hardness, wear, and self-lubricating properties. The slides feature a strong and large section guideways, with a strong 6mm tongue. The large surface area provides long term load bearing surface wear and resitance. NOVA branded for genuine quality. The only high tech jaw slide available in chucks on the market. This precision provides exact and controlled tolerances which are required for Woodturning chucks. All NOVA jaws have identical fixing method, giving you ultimate flexibility - all accessory jaws will fit all chucks (of course, only those accessory jaws that are appropriate for that particular chucks' range are recommended).
Auto-stop prevents the chuck jaws from opening beyond their maximum range of travel to ensure safer turning
Easy Lock T-Bar Chuck Key: Easy lock, geared action, T-Bar chuck key with unique tilt away function, easily and positively locates into the chuck gear mechanism for no hassle adjustments
Indexing Backing Plate: Fully sealed high tech, 24 division indexing backing plate made from Duracon composite, reinforced with stranded glass fibres for high strength and long life
Special Woodturning Dovetail Jaw Profile: NOVA Chuck jaws feature a special woodturning dovetail profile proven over 27 years and many, many thousands of chuck users. All NOVA Jaws will cut into the wood fibres, gripping firmly and provide high tear out strength.

The dovetail joint was devised as the strongest joint to work in harmony with the nature of Wood. Equally, the NOVA Dovetail Jaw profile works in harmony with the work piece and provides the highest gripping performance, without damaging the wood.

Nova have a large number of styles of the Dovetail Profile, providing from light non marking grip to the very powerful PowerGrip series. The choice is dependant on the type of turning and hardness of the wood.
Insert/Adaptor System: Every NOVA chuck takes our insert/adaptor for fitting your NOVA chuck to your lathe spindle. We can fit to over 100 different lathes, so there is bound to be one to fit your lathe! This flexible system means that if you ever purchase a new lathe, or want to put your chuck onto a different lathe, it's as easy as buying a new cost effective insert/adaptor.

The insert/adaptor is precision machined from high strength K1045 medium tensile carbon steel, and features a wide mounting face and accurate diameter register for minimising run out. Manufactured in a single operation, with spigot location to give excellent accuracy.
Safe LockTM Woodworm Screw: Supplied with a Safe LockTM Woodworm screw. The form of the screw has a deep fine blade which is machined right to the end of the screw. This allows an easy lead into the wood. The Safe LockTM Woodworm Screw features a square shank and a locating groove so it can lock positively into the NOVA chuck body.
