Nova Cole Jaw Buffers are an accessory for the Nova Cole Jaws and Nova Mini Cole Jaws (#45174 and #45274, sold separately). The buffers are designed to safely and securely hold your turned edge bowls and large diameter cylinders so you can make the finishing cuts to the bottom side. The kit includes two different sets of buffers - multi-sided buffers and long pin buffers‐to cover most workholding requirements. The multi-sided buffers are reinforced with steel so they won't deform under pressure and pull the turning blank away from the jaws. The pin buffers are designed for maximum surface contact on longer turnings. Eight of each style are included, along with fastenings.


Features:

  • Two different complete sets of buffers to cover a majority of holding requirements: a multi sided buffer and a long pin buffer.
  • The multi-sided buffer is reinforced with steel to provide a super solid mounting.
  • Buffers can be positioned and locked in a variety of different ways, giving maximum flexibility for the turner.
  • Reinforced steel rubber gives the multi-sided buffer exceptional grip. The rubber won't collapse and pull the bowl away from the jaws when tightened.
  • The pin buffer provides longer contact surface away from the jaws. It is ideal for holding longer or oddly shaped projects.
  • Only for use on Nova Cole Jaw and Mini Cole Jaw sets (#45174 and #45274, sold separately). Not recommended for use on any other re-chucking system.

Nice addition to the standard Cole Jaw Buffers
Not a replacement for the standard buffers. Rather an addition with multiple profiles to accommodate a multitude of bowl designs. Very pleased with this purchase.

Square style works very well
The square style helped me remount a bowl to do s0me sanding on. Worked better than the round ones for holding power.

Great product for cole jaws
These provide great grip on your finished bowl when turning out the base. Secure grab gives you the ability to turn in confidence your bowl will not come off. Always back up with a center point just to be safe.

Work great
I [ut off replacing the buttons on my Cole jaws too long. I wish I would have replaced them sooner. They don't last forever, but new ones are a sound investment.

Replacement Cole Jaw Buffers
Replacement Cole Jaw Buffers are a improvement from the original factory buffers. The new buffers definitely have a stronger grip. The original factory buffers had began to crack after many years and the new ones are a good replacement. I do find that the new buffers can be a bit tall when working with small pieces such as jar lids. For most of the work that I do these buffers work fine.

They might be better than the round ones. These will have more surface area touching the bowl.

how long are the 'long pin' bufferes?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This set is will grip about 5/8 inch from the face of the jaw. I have seen longer pins but, depending on the shape of the object to be put in the chuck, a vacuum chuck may be something to be considered.
Does the kit come with screws?
Alan C on Mar 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do and they make the cole jaws more useable
what size is the hole in the buffer?
dien2no on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The holes in the jaws dictate the size of the screws which in turn dictate the size of the hole in the buffer. The only variable is the length of the screw.
