Midi Chuck Nova 48111



NOVA™ was the first to manufacture 4-Jaw self centering chucks in woodturning back in 1988. For almost 30 years, NOVA™ experience and knowledge have made the brand of choice for thousands of woodturners. The NOVA™ series chucks and jaws have been developed to provide ultimate holding power, flexibility of use, reliability and value.

High quality, very accurate, they are built to the same exacting standards and take the same accessory range as the other NOVA™ chucks to deliver you maximum versatility and time + money savings.

There are currently 4 chuck types in the NOVA™ chuck family and they all share the same standard features:

  • Precision machined body from solid steel block hardened to exact tolerance with high tech composite jaw slides
  • High powered gearing that delivers outstanding grip for little effort
  • Auto safety stop feature built into the jaw slide to restrict the opening of the chuck beyond its capacity
  • Special proven dovetail jaw profile that grips firmly into the wood fibers and provides high tear out strength
  • 4 jaw self centering design that allows to grip firmly both round and square wood
  • Combine 3 holding functions: contraction, expansion and gripping
  • Safe Lock™ woodworm screw for fast mounting of rough lumber up to 350mm (14") dia
  • NOVA™ universal insert system that allows any chuck to fit your spindle lathe
