Last night at the turners mtg we got to have a hands on the new SuperNova 2 and the new little chuck, the one with the tommy bars. That Nova 2 is a sweet looking chuck and is it heavy. Of course the big thing is the hex turn key in place of the wobble stick that is used now. They are both all chrome except the Nova 2 has a black plastic cover that is over the back of the chuck to keep out dust. Very nice new chuck. It looks like the Nova 2 has the insert built right into it which makes it nice not having to buy another one. But it restricts it to one brand/type of lathe. If you are looking for a 2nd chuck body to use with different jaws, this would make a nice on.
