I guess I must not be as fussy or I got lucky with my original G3 chuck and pens plus jaws. I use them daily and drill almost perfect holes every time in acrylic, wood, burl etc. Some woods, especially laminated spectra ply cause me some issues as the drill follows the glue lines or something every once in a while.

I short, I love the pens plus jaws and would not hesitate to buy them again or recommend them to a friend.

I like this site already! As part of my tooling up to make pens I ordered a set of Pen Plus jaws from Amazon. I haven't used them yet as I'm still in the learning and setup mode. After reading this thread I pulled out my Nova Pen Plus jaws and mounted them into my G3 chuck. To my surprise they are off. As Dave Allen posted the jaws meet at the base but then angle out towards the top. I've readjusted/recalibrated them and even rotated the mounting positons on the chuck. Still the same issue. Looking at the box and the manual I see they are marked Beta Test March 2013. Nice of Amazon to sell up-to-date items... I'll be contacting Teknatool via their website tomorrow. Thanks Dave for pointing this out.

I love my set of these, especially since I bought a set of split ring pliers so I can disassemble and clean.
