Jacob chuck problem

Howard Norman
>I have a Jacob chuck that is mounted on a MT #2 to use on my Jet 1236 lathe. I was attempting to make a bottle stopper. When I removed the tail stock the chuck came off of the MT shaft. I cleaned up everything with IPA and put it back on the lathe. Happened a second time. How should I be cleaning the shafts and the recess in the Jacob chuck to prevent this from happening? I could use some ideas that don't require me going to the store since this is Christmas Eve.
