We only recommend the use of authentic NOVA accessories on your NOVA chucks.

Using copies or other brands and products on your NOVA chucks could lead to issues like run out, detachment or product failure. 

Doing so will invalidate the comprehensive NOVA warranty and most importantly, use of unauthorised accessories may be unsafe.


Packed with exciting innovative features and at a fantastically competitive price, the SuperNova2 is the leading chuck of choice on the market today and reinforces NOVA as the leading brand in the chuck market.

Note: If your lathe is less than 20” diameter swing, please have a look at either the Nova Precision Midi or the Nova G3 chucks.  If your lathe has more than 20” diameter swing, please have a look at the NOVA Titan Chuck.
