- All accessory jaws in the range will fit all the chucks in the range for optimum flexibility. Some, however, are not recommended. See individual jaws for recommendations.
- Nova chucks are specially designed so the jaws cut into the wood, grip firmly in the contraction mode and provide high tear out strength.
- While traditionally these type of jaws are used in the compression mode, depending on the bowl shape, the jaws can be used to grip in either the contracting or expanding mode.
- To ensure best grip, the bowl should have a positive or negative flair towards the edge of the bowl.
- Try to avoid straight-sided bowls where the grip will be less efficient.
- Best practice is to have a cutting action such that much of the chisel force is directed towards the headstock, not across the face.
