Removing the chuck on a dewalt DC925 cordless drill.

I am trying to replace the chuck on my Dewalt DC925 cordless drill but I can not remove the old chuck. There is no screw and I tried tightening an allen wrench in the chuck and taping with a hammer. The chuck slips . I am replacing the chuck because it will not hold a bit in reverse. I have heard the chuck is glued to the shaft.

I just changed the chuck on my 18 volt xrp half inch hammer drill,yes first you must remove the torx screw with #15 torx bit,note this is a left handed thread screw,knowing the bad chuck was bad I added some heat from a propane torch to the chuck then making sure it was in 1st gear i took some vise grips and the chuck is screwed on with normal right handed threads,it broke loose (was stubborn but needs a lot of torque )ahhhhhh wat a pain.

Some chucks are threadlocked but normally not with a massive amount. I assume you have the cutch set to the drill position and the gearbox set to the slower speed. If the clutch is set to drill and slipping I would suggest it needs attention. You may find the only way to remove the chuck in this situation is to dismantle the clutch and grip the output shaft from behind and unscrew the chuck. This may cause damage to the spindle so it depends on how much parts /repair cost you want to risk.

    I just replaced the chuck on my DC925. There is no screw holding this chuck in place it is just held by threads and loctite. The chuck would not hold the allen wrench so I just used a pin spanner wrench and gave it a rap with a hammer. The chuck spins right off..


Thanks Stug_57u but I already took it to a Dewalt repair center and they replaced the chuck free of charge because it was still under warranty which I did not realize at the time I was trying to remove it.

Hello friend,
These sort of batteries need to be charged discharged quite often. ALWAYS read the manufacturers advice when you get a new one. If you dont charge it properly first time then it will NEVER work at full capacity.and will not last a long time
It appears your battery is now finished and will not hold its charge for long. All you can do is replace it ...sorry.

How do I use a Vermont American #17192 Drill Press Stand? Anyone have an instruction sheet for this? I acquired one from a sale but am unable to figure out how to mount our drill onto it. Thanks.

I have one of these. 2c7c66c8-687d-4eff-b1b9-7685d2c6ebab.gif
Here you will see how the drill is mounted in the device. Position (b) around the handle and tighten it up untill drill seats firmly in place. Take a speed square, or normal square and eyeball or measure the drill to see if its straight. Use the alignment adjustment (A) to fine tune the drill to get the drill bit straight and square. Tighten up all the nuts holding drill in device and recheck the drill bit for straightness.. Put your work under the drill, press the trigger and lock into place to get the drill to constantly run without finger on trigger, pull down the press lever to drill your hole... Hope this helps!
