One of our most popular new released jaw sets yet, this versatile accessory for your NOVA chuck will quickly become a favorite.
The new NOVA Pen ‘Plus’ Jaws easily convert your NOVA chuck into a fast and accurate Pen Blank drilling facility. 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.
These unique jaws are designed especially to hold pen blanks for drilling. But there’s a lot more to them than that – their solid, heavy duty design means not only will they hold Pen blanks securely, but they are also powerful enough to handle larger and longer spigot work (the ‘Plus’ in Pen Plus!) . These heavy duty jaws secured by two screws for each jaw segment have an internal profile to accept square turning blanks. With a rock solid grip over 1 1/2” long these jaws can handle larger squares and rounds with ease and minimal vibration. Also perfect for squaring up the pen blank ends after gluing in the pen kit tubes.
This is truly a versatile jaw that will quickly become one of your favorites.

Our testers have loved it:
“….Also you have much better control of the feed so you don’t destroy your blank. It can even handle drilling blanks that are not quite square – something that’s darn near impossible with a drill press.”
“Using the Pen Plus jaws for drilling pen blanks is just magic! They drilled a dead accurate hole every time during my tests. I could also use them to square up the blank ends after gluing in the tubes, as well as gripping the blanks securely for any other task you might need.”
“Wow! I could believe the rock solid grip it gave me with a ½” square turning over 10” long. I was able to do shaping and hollowing right out the end – very impressive!”

Simply mount a drill chuck into the tail stock of your lathe and slide up the drill bit to the pen blank mounted in the NOVA Pen Plus Jaws. Lock down the tail stock and wind and drill out the hole to take the brass tube. Being mounted on a lathe the turner has more control over motor speed and a much better control of the feed speed.
