I got a new lathe so I got a new 1 1/4” nova insert for my teknasupernova chuck. Off the bat I notice the new adapter is longer than the 1-8 that I did have. And when u screw it all the way down there is a gap.

Anyone have experience. Is this okay?

If installed correctly should be just fine!

Have no experience with Nova chucks, but would mount it on the lathe with some wood in it and give it a go.

1 1/4” insert for my Talon is bigger than my 1”

Interesting – all three of mine went in all the way up to the shoulder. Might want to check out the threads on both pieces. Was the set/grub screw on the adapter screwed out ?

Adrian – I mis errored in my explanation of the NOVA insert, and the shoulder protruding. As long as the insert adapter has bottomed out in the chuck it will be fine. Your photo is correct.
