Cole Jaws

>I purchased the Cole jaws for a Tekna Tool midi chuck and it works fine, except for one aspect. After turning about 5 bowls to near completion and attempting to affix the bowls in the jaws to finish turn the bottoms, I find that 4 of the 5 bowls would not seat appropriately in the jaws. No matter how I position them not all of the little black bumpers would align around a circle. I could get 2 or 3 to work but the remainder would have to be positioned in the next outer row of screw holes which would not allow centering of the piece. I have looked at the instructions but it does not cover this problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Regards,

Don
