Question: I want to order a Nova Chuck and I was asked what spindle thread was on my lathe. Why do I need to know this and how can I work out what the thread size is?



There are many lathes on the market, and many have different thread sizes on the headstock spindle. In order to ensure that your SuperNova or Nova chuck fits accurately and safely onto your lathe, we need to know what thread the lathe spindle is so that we can make an exact match.  Teknatool sales and service staff are generally familiar with most common/popular lathes on the market. If you tell them what your lathe make & model is, chances are that they will immediately be able to match it for you.
