23055 vs 23264 Differences

Chuck: 23055 SuperNOVA 2 was a left hand scroll (anti-clockwise) where with the 23264 LITE SuperNOVA 2 chuck we have reversed the scroll for more intuitive right hand scroll (clockwise).  The old axiom known to most of Righty-Tighty (contract jaws) Lefty-Loosy (expand jaws) now continues with our new LITE chuck range.

We have also removed the numbering on the jawslides. After years of research and taking user input, we have found our method of aligning jaws to jawslide numbers outdated! Now, simply set your jaws on your NOVA LITE chuck at any starting position with your NOVA jaws in clockwise fashion 1-4, it’s that easy!

Warranty: 23055 = 6 Year Jaws and Chuck Full Replacement* + 2 Year Accessories / 23264 = 6 Year Jaws  + 2 Year Chuck and Accessories Full Replacement*

Inclusions: 23055 included the NOVA 10006 Woodworm Screw / 23264 does not include the NOVA 10006 Woodworm Screw
