Quickly cuts a dovetail that matches exactly with the dovetailed contour of your Nova Jaws, making it easy to mount bowl blanks onto your lathe. The precise fit and wedging action give the maximum holding power for your chuck. Although other chisels can be used, none have the dedicated shape of the Nova Dovetail Chisel, and they often result in poor dovetail form and improper seating of the jaws. A handy scale on the chisel blade helps you determine the required diameter of your dovetailed recess.

Features:

  • An accurate and clean dovetail recess is essential for the strongest grip and proper location of your bowl on the chuck. This specially designed Nova chuck accessory quickly and easily makes the dovetail recess to match popular Nova chuck jaws.
  • The small size and easily controlled scraping cut make it very easy to form professional dovetails, even for beginning turners.
  • Made from H2 High Speed Steel, hardened for durability in demanding turning conditions.
  • Handy mark out scale can be used as a guide to mark out the diameter you want to cut your dovetail to.
  • Pre-sharpened. Turner only has to maintain the bevel edge.

When I understood that the lathe had to run in reverse to cut the tenon, then it was easy. My chuck was able to grab it very well

No Brainer. Just start the mortise or tenon and apply the tool. I’ll perfect fit on the Nova G3 chuck

How do you sharpen this chisel? I have one and use it for every bowl now but it's starting to get dull.
John M on Jul 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have a small set of diamond stone sharpening cards from Rockler. I clamped the chisel in a vise and carefully filed each flat surface on the back and slanted sides of the chisel. It was a bit tedious. There are probably better ways of doing it, but it seemed to work reasonably well for me.
Is it required to run the lathe in reverse to use this tool?
Laura S on Jul 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not at all Laura. I use this chisel for many different cuts, but primarily for making an angled, or dovetail cut on my tenon to clamp in to my chuck. I hope this helps.
Does this work for recessed/expansion mode as well as proud/contraction mode?
