diameter does not matter at all. The conical face of the thread, and
the flat shoulder behind the register are sufficiently to achieve
kinematic positioning of the chuck.
I daresay the problem is your testing method. Reground jaws is
basically meaningless, unless they were ground on the lathe in

size of the stock you are now holding. Take of the chuck, and put it
back on, and see if it is consistent. That is a true test.
