SAFE & POPULAR
The Nova Chuck is the most popular woodturning chuck for woodturners worldwide. It is a very safe chucking system - a travel stop automatically prevents jaws from coming out of the chuck. The powerful, all steel construction (body is K1045 steel) and positive jaw action grips wood securely.

No complicated adjustments are necessary with a quick twin lever action to required size and final tightening. Ideal chuck for beginners. There is a comprehensive, step by step manual to show you how. Has large body handle for better grip and a unique action adjuster to set action tightness that suits you.
