  1. It would be nice if nova made a regular jaw set for their vices. Occasionally I need to chuck an item using standard lathe chuck jaws without the tapered jaws. In order to chuck bars on the wood lathe, I need to purchase a metal lathe chuck, then get a thread adapter to go from the 1 1/4 8 tpi wood chuck thread to the standard 1 1/2 tpi standard metal chuck thread. It will cost at least $250 to make this conversion. I would like nova to make reversible jaws so larger items could be chucked using the nova chuck body.
