Nova Limited Edition Veterans Pen Plus Jaws

Nova's Pen Plus Jaws quickly convert your Nova chuck into a fast, accurate pen blank drilling tool. In addition, this Limited Edition Veterans Day set is laser-engraved with the text ''Honoring Those Who Served.'' The large jaw profile provides a solid grip for all sizes of pen blanks, and a perfectly centered hole, every time. Being able to finely control the drill feed on your lathe helps to prevent break out on delicate pen walls. Pen Plus Jaws are also perfect for squaring up the pen blank ends after gluing in the tubes. But here's the ''Plus'' in Pen Plus—the heavy-duty design of the jaws means that they're also powerful enough to handle larger, longer spigot work. With an internal profile that accepts square turning blanks, and a rock solid grip over 1-1/2'' long, the jaws perform admirably, with minimal vibration.


Features:

  • Limited Edition set commemorates Veterans Day with a laser-engraved text ''Honoring Those Who Served''
  • Solid, extended grip design holds the Pen Blank firmly without vibration for clean, accurate drilling
  • Lets you complete all pen making operations on the lathe – no need for a drill press
  • Lets you finely control the feed rate for those delicate pen blanks that are prone to breakout
  • Holds long square/round stock firmly and accurately for wider project use beyond just pens
  • Fits all NOVA chucks

Features standard on all Nova Jaws:

  • Nova chucks give you the same jaw fixing system and same insert/adapter system across all chuck models
  • All accessory jaws in the range will fit all the chucks in the range for optimum flexibility. Some, however, are not recommended. See individual jaws for recommendations
  • Nova chucks are specially designed so the jaws cut into the wood, grip firmly in the contraction mode and provide high tear out strength

Not just pens.
I realize that these jaws were designed with the pen turner in mind, and for the purpose of drilling pen blanks they work well. But it's simple enough to see that they may also be used for other smaller square blanks as well. I'm glad I bought them.

Great Pen Jaws, Perfect for Drilling and Facing
After using these pen jaws to drill and face several 3/4 x 3/4 x ~2 ebony pen blanks, I'll probably never drill another pen blank on my drill press. Mounted on my Nova G3 scroll chuck body, these jaws gripped and centered the pen blanks very well.

An added bonus was using my pen blank facing tool, chucked in a Jacobs chuck mounted in my tailstock, to precisely face each blank down to the brass tube ends.
Facing an ebony pen blank a carbide tool.
Set up and ready to drill an 8mm hole in the center of the ebony pen blank.

Finally on center
Does exactly what I wanted it to do. Much better for drilling out the center than fumbling around with my drill press.

Great set of jaws and a very good cause
The jaws are a good addition to my collection. They make turning small items like pens and ornaments much easier (and probably safer). The real bonus is that veterans benefit from the sales of these jaws.

Will these jaws fit on my Oneway Stronghold Chuck?
Charles F on Nov 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately these jaws will not fit on the Stronghold chuck.
Will they fit the nova 2 chuck ?
Kent B on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: What is the largest square stock I can drill with this jaw set?
does it have 2 screws for each side or only 1?
TX 73 on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: there are 2 screws for each side.
Will this chuck go on an Excelsior Lathe?
Gecko5 on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Those jaws fit at least two Nova chucks. Merely buy the Nova chuck that you desire that has the threads or the insert for match the ones on your lathe. If you have the model I'm guessing you do, that would be 1" 8TPI. Enjoy.
will the Nova Pen Plus Jaws work with the Nova G3?
Ron J on Nov 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yea, I have mine mounted on the Nova G3 chuck.
