Huh .I still prefer my Oneway, mostly because the jaws tighten with the key in the "normal" rotation (righty-tighty). Teknatool use "backwards" rotation.
Okay, scratch everything I just said. I don't have a G3. I have the Titan and SN2. Sorry about that. I use my Titan 90% of the time but the SN2 is a nice versatile size chuck that I use with 50mm jaws when that size tenon is practical. I can't speak to the G3 except to say that I haven't had an occasion to desire anything smaller than the SN2.Bonanza35 said:Chances are you'll end up with both at some point, assuming you stick with Nova. I've got a Titan and a G3 and they both have their place. You've got a lot of stuff to buy right now so I'd suggest starting with the less expensive G3 until you get into turning large bowls, then get the SN2. You can always use your faceplate it you need more support on occasion.
Titan is Teknatools biggest chuck - heavier, can use bigger jaws.bonanza can you tell a difference between the sn2 and the titan? if so what is it? Ive never used the titan....was just wondrin
The Titan is 1 1/8" bigger in diameter. I think the original Titan had a 3 screw jaw mount but mine (1 yr old) has the same 2 screw pattern as the other Novas.bond3737 said:bonanza can you tell a difference between the sn2 and the titan? if so what is it?

Sorry, I can't really give an honest apples to apples comparison like that because I tend to go straight to the Titan for bigger stuff. If I put the Power Grip jaws on the SN2 it might do just as well but I haven't tried it. I sure like those jaws though.bond3737 said:I know it's bigger I just meant in terms of stability. Say you were turning a 16 inch bowl of the same wood and size with both chucks with identical jaws at identical speeds can you tell a difference in the stability of the piece.
