Stuck Morse Taper

John Stankus -- Texas
>Any suggestions on how to get a Morse taper unstuck. I have a Jet Mini lathe, for which I just bought one of the expanding collet chucks from Lee Valley. Played around with it a bit and turned a chunk of oak branch my brother gave me. Afterwards I could not get the MT of the chuck out of the lathe. Any suggestions?

Thanks

John
