Just what I needed
Good quality and exactly what I needed to work on larger pieces. The only issue that I did not foresee is that my key is now too short and won't turn because it hits the larger jaws. Will have to figure that one out.

Rubber Bumpers
I had to purchase longer rubber bumpers for the Jaws. I did not like the way they held on to the bowl.
With the longer bumpers the bowl is held firmly.

Enjoy Cole Jaws
I really appreciate and enjoy using the Cole Jaws. It adds valuable options for bowl and project finishing. I have bought a kit with better rubber grippers though, since the short ones included have not held my project as secure as I want.

Why did you choose this?
Rockler Store
I was not sure weather to get a set of Cole Jaws or a Longworth chuck. I talked to a person at Rockler about both and he gave me the ins and out of both. I also asked which does he prefer? He said the Cole Jaws. That is why I purchased the Cole Jaws.

These 4 big jaws are made of die-cast aluminum? Are small bunches of replacement rubber posts (or jaw segments) available if one or more gets wiped out during use?

Will this work on my G3D nova chuck?

BEST ANSWER: Work on my G3.
Don't know what's the difference in the G3D.
