Chuck jaws

>Periodically a posting shows up asking if particular jaws will fit a specific chuck model. I appreciated the link to "General Specifications of Woodturning Lathes" by Walter Jones that was posted a couple of months ago and wondered if anybody has done something similar with chucks?
I have a Chinese knock-off scroll chuck, with a hex key, that looks (to me) a lot like the Record 4000-- but, then again, there are a lot of similar-looking chucks with incompatible jaws. A table of various chuck models with the jaw-mount hole spacing, diameter and thread size would be a useful reference and would help me expand my chuck's utility without just buying a whole new one (or three).
