The Nova G3 Comet II Chuck features a locking set screw that allows it to be used safely in reverse mode without the risk of unthreading. It is designed for the Nova Comet II Midi Lathe (46457, sold separately), but can be used on any lathe with a 1" 8-TPI RH thread. When used on non-reversing lathes, the set screw must be removed. Like the similar Nova G3, this chuck is a four-jaw, self-centering scroll chuck with a high-powered TuffLock grip for incredibly solid, vibration free performance. The single-handed operation means more time turning and less time setting up. It has less weight, and less overhang than the larger chucks-perfect for the Comet II lathe. The minimal 1.79" body length maximizes your distance between centers, and reduces stress on the spindle. Includes a set of 2" (50mm) jaws.

The #2 morse taper fits most brands, but check the manual for your specific lathe to find the morse taper size. 2MT Center, suitable for all lathes with a #2 morse taper tailstock.Heavy-duty sealed ball bearings for long life.Steel point for a solid bite into the turning blank.Precisely machined medium tensile carbon steel.Standard equipment on all Nova lathes.
Turn your Nova Comet II Midi Lathe into an all-purpose grinder and sharpener! The Versaturn Grinding Wheel includes a 6" white-stone wheel that, together with the Comet's variable speed adjustment, enables you to sharpen your turning tools and perform routine grinding without the burning often experienced with standard bench grinders. Mounting the grinding wheel requires the Versaturn Coupler (48026, sold separately), which allows installation and removal with an easy 1/4 turn of the locking collar. Includes metal shroud, swiveling safety shield and tool rest.
