Nova G3 Comet II Reversible Chuck

SKU: 44597 ID: 524071944 UPC: 669762002594

The Nova G3 Comet II Chuck features a locking set screw that allows it to be used safely in reverse mode without the risk of unthreading. It is designed for the Nova Comet II Midi Lathe (#46457, sold separately), but can be used on any lathe with a 1"e 8-TPI RH thread. When used on non-reversing lathes, the set screw must be removed. Like the similar Nova G3, this chuck is a four-jaw, self-centering scroll chuck with a high-powered TuffLock™ grip for incredibly solid, vibration free performance. The single-handed operation means more time turning and less time setting up. It has less weight, and less overhang than the larger chucks—perfect for the Comet II lathe. The minimal 1.79"e body length maximizes your distance between centers, and reduces stress on the spindle. Includes a set of 2"e (50mm) jaws.
