I am very sorry…

to anyone who was hoping to be the first down under to have the new Nova Infinity System. You can still be the second if you like.

This system has been in development for over 3 years – certainly not something rushed to market, and like every other Teknatool significant development, it is a game-changer.

I will expand (siginficantly) on the system shortly, after having some time to play with it, which includes the new Infinity Chuck, the upgrade kit for the SN2 chuck to make it an Infinity Chuck, some of the new jaws, and the retro kit for adapt existing jaws to fit the new system.

They have really been working on the packaging too – it has come a long way since their first packaging, and even the previous generation is very utilitarian compared to this latest set.

It may not be as good for storing the various items in the workshop, but it is going to be much better in stores, as it really displays the items very nicely.

  1. well you maybe the first but at least I’ve got a shed nyah nyah nyah

    • ROTF LMAO 🙂

  2. Wouldn’t it be nice if day two followed day 1 by 24-hours? The only plus I can think of is that it gives you the opportunity to clean up a bit. Have you figured out your major machinery layout?

    • Sure would be. Finished would be even better!

      I have a bit of an idea of the layout (and all modeled in 3D using Sketchup). However the proof is always in actually trying it out. One of the reasons I have not gone with having power arranged already – have time to play with different layouts and power locations (for maximum flexibility)

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your family Stu and Best wishes for the NewYear may the shed go quick with no problems.

  4. I suppose that with judicious tenon design you can use the chuck as shown, without the part you are holing in your hand, and then have a more stable mounting. Does the additional height cause any issues? I have a gap-bed lathe, and losing that half-inch would be noticeable, and it cannot make it more stable. Anyway, good luck with the shed

    • The part on the bottom of the jaw shown is the retro kit – making previously-owned jaws compatible. If you purchase jaws specifically sold for the Infinity, then obviously the profile will be lower.

      I don’t foresee any issues with the extra height – the whole connection is solid
