Topic tags/keywords: 48-121 nova chuck

Is it obsolete? Will it do what the current 46-461 will do?

I don’t know that model, but Nova seems to be a good quality product. I have the small chuck they make for Midi sized lathes and have been happy so far.

topamax I couldn’t find anything out on the 48-121. I have the nova 3g. It works great. All of the newer nova chucks the assories will fit on all of the chucks. You can look on WC or the company thqt makes it is www.teknatool.com

I didn’t have time to look it up…but Nova does make chucks for metal turning lathes also….the 4 jaw chucks that most of us wood turners are used to these days came from metal lathes originally and were not specifically developed for wood lathes. You might want to look at metal turning to see if maybe it is a chuck made for a metal lathe, especially if it is older.

www.teknatool.com didn’t show up when I googled it. May have spelled it wrong. Looks like a big site, I’ll check it out when I have a few.

Guy that has it doesn’t seem to know much about it. Probably not a turner.

Thanks for the info,
