Jacobs chuck and MT questions

>Greetings all,

I have a couple of questions about use of a Jacob's chuck/#2 MT combo on my Jet mini lathe.

1. When using this, the chuck comes off the end at times. I believe there is a screw hole in the chuck to secure it, the way they are connected to drills. Anyone tell what size screw is needed?

2. Other times, the entire chuck/MT slides out of my headstock. I know there is a way to hold it in place with a long screw. Anyone know where these are available or who sells them?

Thanks in advance.
