Problem with Vicmarc 100 Chuck

Bill Lordan, Auburn, NH
>I was just in the process of reversing a bowl on my Vicmarc 100 chuck when I noticed one of the 4 jaws was out of alignment. Three of the jaws come together but one is out of alignment by about 1/8". I checked my stronghold chuck and all 4 jaws come together equally on it.

Has anyone out there had this problem? Is there a way to fix it? Normally I would just blindly go to work taking the chuck apart but old age has made me a little wiser and I thought I'd ask the experts here first.

Any advice you may offer will be appreciated.
