The original forum topic I started…. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/28623
So again, here is the WOODCRAFT adapter that didn’t thread correctly but was the right one for my lathe:
And here is the TEKNATOOL adapter that threaded perfectly and took away my fears that my lathe had bad threading :)
Big difference huh?
So it seems like the Woodcraft adapter I got was just a bad one, and yes it was the correct type for my lathe, http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2005199/2891/Nova-18-TPI-RH-Insert.aspx . The sales guy at woodcraft assured me though that it was my lathe because the adapters were milled to very high tolerances. He said if I got a replacement one I would still have the same issue so I didn’t even bother replacing it at Woodcraft.
I doubt that Teknatool mills theirs to lower tolerances than Woodcraft would. So, buy adapters from Teknatool directly for the SuperNova2 Chuck if you’re having issues.
