This has been a long time coming, but it is finally here - The replacement SuperNova 1 chuck key!
As a result of the original key design for the first generation of SuperNova chucks, many users found the pivot pin and head became separated or indeed the head cracked, ultimately rendering the key and thus chuck unuseable, making the chuck essentially obsolete in the workshop.
The original chuck key which suffered this design weakness can be seen in some of the images alongside the new key.
We have worked to mitigare this issue and bring many of these chuck back into service by creating a deicated chuck key for the SuperNova 1.
Boasting an overall length of 200mm and a removable tommy bar so that you can get around or behind large piece of work.
Please note, this is not compatible with the SuperNova2 or G3 chucks...otherwise we would have just used that chuck key instead.
What's to say, this is us! We are woodworkers and have been retailing in the woodturning, carving and woodworking industry for over 20 year, across two generations. We sell tools we would - and indeed do - use. If it is on the shelves, it carries (for one reason or another) our seal of approval. We are wholly independent, we can choose wherever the wind blows, we have no formal affiliation, which makes our opinons and decision the only truly inpartial ones in the country as things stand.
We have worked with both big and small manufacturers over the years, we have helped brands develop tools, lathes and accessories, as well as creating our own.
We are proud to manufacture, distribute and retail a huge array of tools, equipment, machinery and supplies for woodturning and wood carving from across the globe.
