The SuperNova 2 is a solid, powerful chuck, perfect for use on lathes with up to a 20" swing. It's an excellent, all-purpose geared chuck, suitable for a majority of users, and is packed with exciting, innovative features such as a fully sealed composite indexing backing plate and copper - infused jaw slides. Its patented gearing system delivers incredible gripping power. You'll find yourself turning longer, more delicate stems, as well as larger, rougher work that was difficult to handle before. The SuperNova 2 requires only one hand to operate. Using a ball-nosed hex wrench with a large handle, its easy to tighten. This is an insert chuck, and requires you to purchase a dedicated Insert/Adapter for mounting on your lathe. Includes a set of 2" (50mm) jaws.
