Chuck won't thread spindle

Travis Northcutt
>Hey folks, I need some help. I have a Jet Mini 10X14 and I use a nova midi chuck. I moved my lathe to the house a couple months ago. Apparently during the move I did something to the spindle and now my chuck won't thread on. I noticed it the first time a couple weeks ago when I went to turn a bowl. I filed the threads some, but it still won't thread. It turns about 2-3 threads and then sticks.

If anyone has any suggestions or if this has happened to you, I am open to advice. Thanks.
