Here's a project that offers the kind of fun that keeps on giving. As the builder, you'll get a chance to polish your turning skills making the mallets, cart parts, wheels and even the balls! Others will see this as the hard part, but if you enjoy lathe work, the effort will seem like woodworking bliss. Then, after the "tough" part is through, the fun just continues as you put this handmade set to work whenever friends and family gather. Really, you're the only one who can't lose here!
Faceplates have always been regarded as a safe and secure holding method for large turnings such as bowls and platters. The only drawback is that they are a slower mounting method when compared to scroll action chucks. Now, however, you can have the best of both worlds! Nova Faceplate Rings offer the same secure holding power of a faceplate, but you can hold them with your Nova scroll chuck for the ultimate in speed and convenience. Simply screw the faceplate ring to your turning blank, then secure the ring in your chuck. The faceplate rings are available in three sizes for a wide range of workpiece sizes. The size of your faceplate ring should match the size of the jaws on your Nova chuck.Faceplate Rings fit directly into your Teknatool Chuck (matching size of jaws must be mounted on the chuck).No need to remove the chuck from your lathe as you would with traditional faceplate mounting.Fast mounting method for bowl blanks.Best alternative to Woodworm screw mounting, which is only recommended for smaller bowls.Can also be used for moderate off-center multi-axis turning.Faceplate mounting is a strong mounting method, even with irregular sized wood and rough cut surfaces.Specifications:50mm (2") faceplate ring fits 50mm jaws. Faceplate diameter is 3".100mm (4") faceplate ring fits 100mm jaws. Faceplate diameter is 5".130mm (5") faceplate ring fits 130mm jaws, Faceplate diameter is 6-1/4".
All insert-style Nova chucks use an easy and inexpensive insert/adapter system that lets you mount your chuck on virtually any lathe. The inserts are available with a variety of thread patterns on the interior, but all have the same exterior thread to fit all your Nova chuck(s). Just check the manual of your lathe to find the threading of your headstock spindle and purchase the corresponding adapter. Once the insert is in place, threading the chuck onto your lathe is a simple matter. The insert system also guarantees that you'll still be able to use your Nova chucks, even if you upgrade or change lathes later. If an insert/adapter is not available to match your lathe, you can have one threaded from a Blank Insert/Adapter (46298, sold separately). Also see our Chuck Spanner (49013, sold separately), which is useful for tightening the inserts in place. All insert-style Nova chucks (apart from the obsolete Compac chuck) use the same insert/adapter system to ensure maximum adaptability and flexibility for the user.Large range of inserts fit many different popular lathe models (see below). This makes it easy to bring your chucks with you when you change lathes.Inserts are threaded both inside and out. Outside thread is made to fit into the Nova Chucks. The inside thread fits onto your lathe.Note: Directly threaded chucks cannot be adapted to insert-style chucks.
