A threaded 'insert' for use with the Supernova 'insert type' chuck.
The insert is screwed into the insert mounting thread in the rear of the Supernova chuck body. NB: this thread is unique to ensure that only chuck mounting inserts can be fitted to it; it is NOT a standard spindle thread form. DO NOT attempt to mount the insert into any other thread form such as, for instance, a directly threaded Supernova chuck.
This insert is supplied UNTHREADED in order that the user can arrange for threading to suit any lathe not accommodated by one of the standard SuperNova threaded inserts.
