Chuck loosening during turning - Help requested

Feb 11, 2021
Clarksville, IA
I have the nova chucks and have always had problems with tenons and bowls flying off the lathe. I went to using a mortise and problem solved. I always would dovetail my tenon not knowing they recommend it to be straight. I will have to try one with a straight tenon and see if it works better.
That should solve your problem.
