Suited for lathes with up to a 20'' swing, the Pro-Tek SuperNova2 is an excellent, all-purpose geared chuck that delivers incredible gripping power. It features all the premium performance of its predecessor, plus numerous upgrades like a corrosion-resistant nickel plating, improved 50mm jaws with both a dovetail profile and serrations, and durable 6-point star fasteners. It's easy to tighten with just one hand using the included T-handled hex wrench. Includes a set of 2'' (50mm) jaws.

Note: This is an insert chuck, and requires you to purchase a dedicated Insert/Adapter for mounting on your lathe.
