looking for a chuck

Well, I'm now in the market for a chuck and just wondering if anybody knows of any good deals? I am leaning right now at the Supernova2. A club member sent out this link on it.

http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/i...odID=6713&HS=1

$179 with free cole jaw set. Seems like a good deal. I missed the talon deal from Hartville tools last month as that would have been a good one also.

Just wondering if anyone knew of any deals or any experience with the supernova2.

Here's one for $160 + $15 S&H

http://cgi.ebay.com/SUPERNOVA-SUPER-...A1%7C294%3A200

I bought from him before. Got the Nova G3 for $120 from him. He is great to work with and has fast shipping. I haven't used the supernova so I can't comment on that, but I would highly recommend the G3, depending on what you plan to do.

But save some money and buy from him!

I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted paychecks.

Oh, one other thing...

He included the 1 x 8 tpi insert in needed for my lathe. Not sure if the supernova needs that (probably) but that's another reason to buy there.

The Ebay link seller is the owner of the Nova distributor, KMS in Canada. That particular item includes a spindle insert but doesn't include any jaws.
The Nova G3 & SN2 need a spindle insert for your lathe.

Didn't see that...

I got jaws with my G3 from him and just assumed...Oops.

So after looking more closely, I agree, go with the Highland deal if you want the SN2.

You may also want to take a look at the refurbished SN2 for $124 from Tim Geist (the service rep of Nova). Don't know whether it comes with insert.

Our Club has done a group buy on the $50 Nova 1" X 8 tpi scroll chucks from him. These direct threaded chucks were excellent value.
