Nova G3 sale . . .

I haven't had much time to turn and won't for a while, but I couldn't pass up Woodcraft's 50% off sale with promo pack, free shipping and it includes the Cole mini jaw!

You get the G3 chuck body with the T handle chuck key, 35mm jaws, 50 mm jaws, pin jaws, and a mini Cole jaws set.

The mini Cole is $60 by itself. Total for all of it came to $173.98. This is really an incredible buy. My POJ chuck will never see the light of day again.

Just thought I'd give a heads up to any mini or midi drivers who are unhappy with their current chuck.

I don't know much of anything about chucks other than the mostly crummy one that I have.

This one says that it doesn't come with an insert, and I can't find what size spindle the chuck fits on, so I'm left to guess that the insert is an adapter to whatever size spindle you want to use.

If that's the case, how do I find the adapters on their website? I need a 1" x 8tpi, but I can't find it for the G3 chuck. :(

The insert is what allows the chuck to be mated to your particular lathe so you only need the one. If your threads are 1"-8tpi then you need insert number 15M76. Stick that into their search box and it'll pop up. Their website can be confusing on many of the accessories. HTH.

Yeah I thought so too. She's not done with this semester until January but she plans to get back out here and make some bowls and other gifts if I get her some heat in the turning corner. I might just set the thing up in her sewing room.

I just bought the G3 Nova chuck. Forgot the insert.... But the 15M76 is for the Nova chuck and a 1"x8 lathe.

I was at our local woodcraft store, which is pretty handy at about 5 minutes from my house. I stopped in just to get a copy of a receipt I needed for our turning club and saw the chuck there and bought it and the adapter. Looks like a pretty good setup. I have to degrease it and put it in service yet.

I just bought my boy a unused two year old Jet 1014 mini. Would the G3 promo deal or the black Friday deal on the Nova midi chuck at $125.00 with six jaw sets be better on a mini? The G3 would need the adapter and the midi will bolt right on. I have only used the SuperNova2 and the Vicmarc, any input would help.
