Short answer: No
Often the claim is made that NOVA® Accessory jaws can be fitted to copy and clone NOVA® chucks. This is even in the printed literature, websites and other communication pieces for the copies.
NOVA® has always and will continue to focus on, the safety perspective.
As designers and manufactures of NOVA® chucks and accessories, we are unable to determine that genuine NOVA® Accessory Jaws fitted to other non-NOVA® chucks are safe and correctly engineered.
All genuine NOVA® Jaws and Accessories are designed to work correctly only on NOVA® chucks, and come with the comprehensive NOVA® warranty, backed up with full on the ground service and support in market, and over 30 years experience in making award winning Chucks. After all, we were the first to design a 4-Jaw Chuck for Woodturning, back in 1988.
2. Jaws and accessories from other manufacturers should also not be fitted to NOVA® Chucks unless they have been engineered and approved for use on NOVA® Chucks, by the designers and manufacturers of NOVA® specifically. Doing so will void your comprehensive 6-Year NOVA® warranty.
Dealers/Resellers – Please ensure that customers are aware that NOVA® jaws should only be fitted to and used on NOVA® chucks. Where other chuck sellers have written claims that the NOVA® jaws can be fitted, please ask to see their engineering and safety audits and ask what their product liability covers. Please be aware that NOVA® cannot determine that this is safe and as manufacturers we advise that NOVA® jaws should not be fitted to non-NOVA® chucks.
Chuck Owners/End users – Ensure that the Reseller/Dealer has provided specific written advice that NOVA® jaws fitted to non- NOVA® chucks are safe. NOVA® cannot determine that this is safe and as manufacturers we advise that NOVA® jaws should not be fitted to non-NOVA® chucks.
