The SuperNova 2 is a solid, powerful chuck, perfect for use on lathes with up to a 20'' swing. It is offered here in a value package with two extra sets of jaws—4'' jaws and 5'' jaws—in addition to the standard 2'' jaws. It's an excellent, all-purpose geared chuck, suitable for a majority of users, and is packed with exciting, innovative features such as a fully sealed composite indexing backing plate and copper-infused jaw slides. Its patented gearing system delivers incredible gripping power. You'll find yourself turning longer, more delicate stems, as well as larger, rougher work that was difficult to handle before. The SuperNova 2 requires only one hand to operate. Using a ball-nosed hex wrench with a large handle, its easy to tighten. Includes a set of 2" (50mm) jaws.


Features:

  • Fully sealed backing plate is made from ultra-tough Duracon composite, reinforced with stranded glass fibers
  • Self-lubricating properties
  • Unique indexing function built into backing plate
  • Powerful geared grip with Tuff Lock™ Technology delivers an incredibly smooth, solid, vibration-free hold
  • Single-handed operation for fast, convenient mounting
  • Captured pinion and ball-nose Allen key with large, easy grip handle
  • Body made from precision machined 1045 high-tensile steel
  • Able to take all Nova accessory jaws (except Titan Power grip, which is specially designed for the Titan Chuck)
  • Four jaw design firmly grips both round and square wood
  • Precision machined in one operation from a solid steel block for optimal accuracy
  • Polished metal finish to allow for closer tolerances and accuracy
  • Common accessory jaw fixing profile is compatible across all Nova chucks and accessories
  • Special woodturning dovetail profile on jaws
  • Auto safety stop feature so jaw slides can't protrude past the chuck body
  • Safe Lock™ Woodworm screw included for fast mounting of rough timbers

Package includes two extra sets of jaws—ideal for large turnings like bowls—plus a storage case!

The included JS100N 4'' Jaw Set is designed for expanded dovetail or reverse dovetail use. Ideal for gripping footed bowls and mounting custom wooden jaws. The JS130N 5'' set is the bigger brother to the 4'' set, designed to handle large, shallow bowl and platter work up to 29-1/2'' in diameter. The big capacity of these jaws is a perfect match for the powerful SuperNova 2. Both sets of jaws grip firmly in both contraction and expansion mode.

Important Note: Only use authentic Nova accessories on your Nova chuck. Using non-genuine Nova accessories and copies of accessories could lead to operation and safety issues and will void the warranty. Nova accessories are designed for use only on Nova chucks. Do not use on any other chuck. This is not an insert style chuck. Cannot use an insert/adapter to change the threading.

Looked like a good price and am just starting to use my Shipsmith for wood turning

I like Nova products and as I am purchasing a Nova 1624 in two weeks and I'll need a chuck that'll fit 1-1/4" 8tpi plus with the large jaws I'll be able to really see if the lathe will handle a 29" piece. Wish me luck!

Why is the manual for a Makita vacuum listed for the Nova chuck kit?

Will this chuck and its attachments work on a Shopsmith V?
Phil M on Jul 5, 2018
Can this 30th anniversary Supernova2 chuck set be used with the 10x18 Harbor Freight lathe? If so what adapter is needed? Thanks.
Jarvis H on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This lathe chuck does not take adapters and will only fit one size head. This information is located at the end of the description.
Can this chuck be locked to run in reverse?
Lance R on Jul 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. There is a grub screw (set screw) that can be tightened down to allow that. There is a fiber washer included that you should put under the grub screw to protect the lathe shaft
If I buy the Chuck can I get an adapter to fit my 1" 8 tpi lathe?
L S on Sep 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This chuck is threaded for a 1-1/4" 8tpi. There are some adapters out there that can get to use it on a 1" 8tpi thread but your chuck will be moved over an 1" or so to the right. We have a G3 bundle that would fit the spindle you have. Item #56692
Will this work on a Jet 1221?
david S on Jun 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is on the larger size for a lathe like the Jet 1221 but it will work on it.
Why do I need an insert adapter? My lathe has a threated end.
fran c on Jun 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The insert connects two parts with different thread diameters and pitches, similar to threaded plumbing bushings. In this case it connects the chuck to the lathe spindle.

With all the varying spindle thread sizes on the different lathe brands, it is not practical to make separate chucks to fit them all. So, to save that expense, different inserts are made to screw into the back of the Nova chuck. The inserts have inside diameters and thread pitches that match the different lathe spindles on the market, including yours.
Will this fit the 11/2" spindle on an older powermatic lathe?
Coan B on Jul 4, 2018
I ordered the Insert D (IDNS) 1 - 8TPI adapter for the (50518) Super Nova 2Chuck bundle and it screws onto my lathe but the treads are to big to thread into the chuck. I have the same adapter for my G3 chuck and it works fine. How do I find out what threads are in this chuck so I can get the right insert adapter?
Wade A on Jun 16, 2018
Hi, I have the Nova 1624 lathe, it has the 1-1/4 x 8 spindle thread. Do I need an adapter (or anything else) or will this chuck (Item #: 50518) just thread directly onto my spindle? Just want to make sure I'm not missing anything if I order this nova 2 chuck. Thanks Marc.
