    the shafts get crushed by over tightening and bulge on the other side of the Ferrell inside the collect is usually what happens if you have enough room to take apart the collect you can try to spread the fingers on the Ferrell to pull the shaft out more then likely your shaft is shot also

    This is a collet:
