The big jaw profile provides a vibration free, solid grip for all sizes of pen blanks and an accurate centered hole every time. Being able to finely control the drill feed on the lathe is a big advantage to prevent break out on those delicate pen walls. Also perfect for squaring up the pen blank ends after gluing in the pen kit tubes.
Solid, long design means the pen blank is gripped firmly without movement. Drill your pen blanks accurately and cleanly.
Convenient for small run pen making. As all operations are based around the lathe, there’s no need for a drill press or pen vice.
Fast and easy to use – can be set up on a lathe in a few minutes, rather than lining up vice in drill press.
Control your drill feed to slow it down for fragile pen blank walls to prevent breakout.
Plus factor – hold long square stock firmly and accurately for wider project use – beyond just pens
Fits on all NOVA chucks, even the new NOVA Infinity (with optional Retro Fit Kit)
Drilling on the lathe enables the turner to hold the Pen blank centrally, allowing for more accurate drilling and greater control of the process.
A ‘V’ groove in each of the jaws ensures a more secure and firmer grip.
