WOOD magazine review

Beefy, high-performance chuck

Review Summary

Featuring the same jaws, capacities, and screw center as the smaller Nova G3, the SuperNova2 is essentially a heavier version of its little brother. It's a solid, well-built chuck that performs well. But its closed back, meant to block dust, actually makes it more difficult to clean the debris that inevitably gets in. And you’ll need to buy an optional wrench to remove this chuck from the lathe spindle.
The scroll tightens in the opposite direction from other chucks—a bit confusing until you get used to it.
