Surprisingly difficult to find an 11mm chuck key, but I did find a 7/16" key which needed just a hair ground off to fit. And, with a good bit of force, and an extremely alarming bang the camlocks came loose. I got the chuck off, and like everything else, it looks suspiciously like the original factory grease.

I mounted the four jaw up just to see that it fitted, after all that, and it does - just. The jaws will hold quite a large workpiece without protruding beyond the chuck anyway but without doubt one could accidentally do a great deal of damage if they tried!
