    TPI on delta Midi?

    Folks, what's the diameter and threads per inch on the delta midi headstock? I think I have to send back a christmas gift to get one that fits my unit. The gadget I received has 3/4" and iirc correctly that's not going to fit, am I right?

    Ned, did you check for an adapter?
    Click on the link:

    NOVA CHUCK INSERT/ADAPTORS

    Take a look at insert "D" or "T"

    I think Woodcraft sells them.

    Ditto Frank T. Get an adapter. Check out PSI and/or Amazon which sells the PSI cheaper than PSI even though they aren't expensive to start with. Follow that? And, I haven't even started on the egg nog yet.

    After I posted Frank I checked the Lee Valley site:

    58B03.15 // 3/4" x 16 tpi // $85.70

    58B03.16 // 1" x 8 tpi // $85.70

    The Nova Midi Chuck is direct threaded. The Nova G3 and up use an insert that allows you to change spindle size.
    Don't keep the 3/4" X 16 chuck. The standard for mini lathe has gone to 1" X 8 already. There is little chance that you will go back to the smaller size.
    If lathe upgrade is in your future, you should look at the G3.
    This chart shows the ranges of different Nova chucks.

    Ned, what do you actually need? I know the female for the lathe spindle needs to be 1"X8tpi. What does the male side need to be. I might be able to help. Gotta box full of 'stuff' here that might have just what ye need.
