Finding a wrench to fit your Nova chuck and inserts can be difficult. This handy all-in-one tool is an economic way to have a dedicated solution in your chuck toolbox. The Nova Spanner has a thin section that fits easily between the chuck and lathe where standard spanners can be too thick to insert properly. The handle has a good length to provide an adequate grip and purchase. The Nova Universal Spanner features over four different specific functions in one handy unit. This inexpensive, handy tool is a logical choice for your chuck toolkit.


Features:

  • Over 4 functions in one tool.
  • Fits all Nova chucks for easy, fast loosening and tightening.
  • Makes it easy to unscrew the chuck from the lathe spindle.
  • Spanner is contoured to the chuck body to provide maximum support and no damage to chuck when strong leverage needs to be applied.
  • Fits Nova Ornamental Turner. Handy for mounting and demounting of chuck, and adjustment of stops and fastenings.
  • Fits Nova ER32 Collet System.
  • Hard wearing steel, heat-treated to ensure durability and long life.

Functions:
  • C spanner for SuperNova2, G3, MIDI and Titan chucks. Rounded tip sits in corresponding hole or pinion center and arc conforms to chuck perimeter for easy tightening and loosening of chuck.
  • Spanner for all Nova chuck inserts.
  • Spanner for ornamental turner, 1/2" T-slot stops and 5/16" UNC fastenings.
  • C spanner for ER32 collets. Rounded tip sits in corresponding hole on collet and arc forms perfectly around collet perimeter for easy tightening and loosening

WOULD BUY AGAIN
Thus should come with the Nova chuck, but its the easiest way to get everything tightened up, especial when combined with a spanner wrench.

I give it 2 thumbs up..
Considering my height working from a wheelchair. This wrench works great removing the chuck.

Lever works but it hurts to use
It does its function of providing leverage to take off the chuck. But I will wrap it with wood or tape or string or something to soften the grip.

substandard strength
On first use, the wrench broke at the throat of the opening. The wrench is cast, not forged and has very little strength against shock or in bending. Use carefully.

Cheap pot metal -broke on first use
Cheap pot metal-broke the very first time I used it on my Nova check. Got a refund. Shame on Nova for putting out junk like this.

Could not find a wrench to fit the lathe chuck. Just happened to be scanning Rockler and found this.

A second wrench will enable me to remove the insert from my Nova chucks when they get stuck. There's not enough room between the spindle and the chuck to use any of the conventional wrenches I own. The slim profile of this wrench is perfect.

I've struggled to loosen the chuck from my lathe and this should no longer be a problem

Because I need one

Rather get it with chuck order than to find out later I need it and don't have it.

how wide is the opening of the spanner ? Is it 1.5 inches?
brian f on Nov 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately I am not at home this week so cannot give you a precise measurement. It fits the part of a Nova chuck that threads onto the spindle. The only weak part of the tool is that it isn't able to find a purchase on a Nova faceplate to loosen that.
I have a Supernova2 chuck with the adapter for a Rikon mini lathe #70-050. The adapter has a 1-1/2" nut and the Rikon has a 1-11/16" collar with two 1/4" to 5/16" holes that require a spanner wrench. Will this wrench work for my equipment?
