23067 vs 23269 Differences
Chuck: The 23067 SuperNOVA 2 was a left hand scroll (anti-clockwise) where with the 23269 LITE SuperNOVA 2 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 After years of research and taking user input, we have found our method of aligning jaws to jawslide numbers outdated!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: 23067 = 6 Year Chuck Full Replacement* / 23269 = 2 Year Chuck Full Replacement*
