question about the Nova G3

I bought the G3 and was reading over the instructions and I thought it could handle larger bowls 8-12" but after reading again now Im not sure? Maybe Im just not reading close enough but swear it says like a 4" bowl is max

After looking at that link I'm pretty sure is says that with the standard jaws it can handle a bowl up to 14" if your lathe allows for a bowl that size.

I just looked at the manual online and also saw it could handle bowels up to 14" diameter with the standard 2" jaws.

They're only limiting at 14" because that's the swing of the lathe. If the tenon is cut correctly and is not bottoming out on the inside of the chuck, it shouldn't matter the diameter, as long as it's not a monster heavy piece of wood.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

my lathe (delta 46-460) only has a 12" swing so, I just wanted to make sure I wasnt doing something wrong before I threw on something larger it. Thanks for the quick replies guys, had a foot out the door on the way to the local woodcrafter store.

Glad you didn't! I used the Nova G3 chucks for my intro woodturning class and they are definitely good quality equipment.

Been awhile since this but wanted to say thanks to the quick replies. Nice to have the cash for something else. I was gluing up a blank to turn and once I had it laid out it was around 7" square, I know its not to big in dia but the paper work with my chuck says no more than 5" tall to be turned...So is this were I need another chuck to do larger pieces? Im fine with working with shorter bowls for now but I have some idea's that would require a taller piece, and just trying to figure out what I want to pick up next.

thanks again

The 45mm spigot jaws for your chuck will support up to 10" long pieces without any support from the tail stock. This is right from the Teknatool website.
