RE-mounting of pieces

DD
>I continuously have a problem when I try to remount a piece in my talon chuck. Whenever I re-mount it I can never get the piece (it doesn't matter what I am turning)to run true. I was watching a Raffan video the other day. He simply taps the piece, and presto! it's running true on the lathe. No amount of tapping gets my pieces to run true. Is there some sort of trick to this that I am missing? I try to get it as true as I can, but it never seems to get there, which can create more problems downstream (depending on the piece). I also always ensure my tenon doesn't bottom out in the chuck. Any help appreciated.
