G3 Chuck and cole jaw
#6
  
Hi all,

Does anyone have a solution for the fact that the key for a Nova G3 chuck can't be turned more than 1/8 of a turn when using the large cole jaw?  Do I need to buy a 2nd key and cut off one of the arms?

Anyone ever run into this before?  I was so excited to use the larger jaw but what a pain to mount a work piece.

thanks!

I do not have those but I remember that they sell a longer one for that purpose.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Can you cut the shank off and weld or braze the female end of a 1/2" drive extension to is so that you can use a regular tee handle?
We do segmented turning, not because it is easy, but because it is hard.

I think that the old key was one piece but the new ones have a handle that can slide through the shat.
Call Nova customer service.
they might send you a new one

Thanks for the ideas.  I will reach out to Nova first and if that does not work then buy a second one and modify it.
