The NOVA 48287 LITE G3 Direct Thread 1″ x 8 TPI is light weight, and with less overhang which is perfect for smaller lathe spindles. The small 1.79″ body length delivers less overhang from the spindle than the larger geared Chucks 4 Jaw self centering geared chuck, suitable for smaller lathes with up to 14″ swing. Fully featured chuck including Auto Stop, Copper composite Jaw Slides, Comfortable Sliding T Bar Handle and 2″ (50mm) Jaws. Powerful Tuff Lock gearing with precise, hardened action delivers incredibly smooth strength for a solid, vibration free performance.

48232 vs 48287 Differences
Chuck: The 48232 G3 Chuck was a left hand scroll (anti-clockwise) where with the 48287 LITE G3 chuck we have reversed the scroll a for more intuitive right hand scroll (clockwise). The old axiom known to many of Righty-Tighty (contract jaws) Lefty-Loosy (expand jaws) now continues with our new LITE chuck range.

We have also removed the numbering on the jawslides. After years of research and taking user input, we have found our method of aligning jaws to jawslide numbers outdated! Now, simply set your NOVA jaws on your NOVA LITE chuck at any starting position with your NOVA jaws in clockwise fashion by the jaw markings 1-4, it’s that easy!

Warranty: 48232 = 6 Year Jaws and Accessories + 6 Year Chuck Full Replacement* / 48287 = 6 Year Jaws and Accessories + 2 Year Chuck Full Replacement*

Inclusions: 48232 had a fixed position T Bar chuck key / 48287 now has an improved sliding T Bar chuck key to allow for easy scrolling when using NOVA Cole Jaws or other large protruding work. The 48232 included the NOVA Wormwood screw / 48287 does not include the NOVA Wormwood screw.
