NOVA G3 Chuck 

The NOVA G3 Chuck is a four-jaw, self-centering scroll chuck for Mini and Midi lathes with up to a 16" swing over the bed. It's an excellent high-powered geared chuck with TuffLock™ grip for incredibly solid, vibration free performance. The single-handed operation means more time turning and less time setting up. The NOVA G3 has less weight, and less overhang than the larger chucks - perfect for smaller lathe spindles. The minimal 1.79" body length maximizes your distance between centers, and reduces stress on the spindle. This is an insert chuck, and requires you to purchase a dedicated Insert/Adapter for mounting on your lathe. Includes a set of 2" (50mm) jaws.  


  • Small, compact design minimizes load on small spindles and bearings.
  • Open back for easy cleaning.
  • Precise, powerful hardened gear action with Tuff Lock™ technology.
  • Single-handed operation with included chuck key.
  • Able to take all NOVA accessory jaws. **However, please note: the larger accessory jaws in the NOVA line are not recommended for use on the NOVA G3 Insert Chuck. For more information, see the offers for individual jaw sets.
