Infinity Re-release

Appears the re-release of the Nova Infinity Quick Change Chuck (that’s a mouthful) is imminent. From the US Nova website, they are advertising the Infinity for Father’s Day (the US version of Father’s Day, June 15 this year), with the pre-orders being fulfilled by July 20.

The initial launch was very unfortunately affected by a small batch having one component incorrectly hardened, which resulted in all the early stock being recalled.  Not sure why it has taken so long for the re-release, but I’m guessing a combination of having new batches produced, testing etc.  It may or may not have resulted in a change in manufacturing firm, which would have resulted in significant retooling etc.  I’d almost guess that didn’t happen – the delay has not been long enough.

The news must be pretty new – even the Nova Infinity website hasn’t been updated yet!

So that is really good news, and we can soon place this little hiccup behind us, and get back to using the most innovative change to lathe workholding since Teknatool invented the self-centering 4 jaw chuck.

  1. ok Stu – no pressure but know that it was your review (& a fortuitous sale) that finally convinced me to invest in a Nova DVR XP – yes, it is indeed one sweet lathe …
    Similarly, I just launched my order for Infinity chuck & jaw RETRO kits. I trust I will like them as well? …
    Cheers …

    • Mark, you’ll LOVE the Infinity system, especially given you’ve experienced the traditional way of changing over jaws. Not that the old way was particularly bad, but the Infinity system is a quantum leap in speed and convenience.

      Have you seen my videos on the system? Not that you need convincing, seeing as you’ve already placed an order!
