Usually that requires special fixtures to remove the collar and a press, I would recommend cleaning with WD-40 and wiping clean all exposed parts and if you have compressed air try using that also, WEAR safety glasses.

SOURCE: i need a chuck wrench/tool for a duracraft drill press

Are you talking about the chuck key? That's the little wrench with a collar of gear teeth on it.
There are only a few standard sizes plus a couple of odd-balls. Last time I looked, Sears carried a good selection. If you have the old one, take it with you to the store. If you don't have the old one, find a way to measure or approximately measure what you need. Another chuck key that doesn't fit can be a useful reference. If you can find something (maybe a drill bit) that is a close fit into one of the three holes in the chuck, that can be useful too.

Where can i find a 5/8 in. chuck for a Pit Bull CH-16NF Drill press


Take it to a local engineering sales shop. They are all basically the same and fit into the shaft with a morse taper. You just need the correct taper.

    Is the chuck a know off or threaded chuck. where should i buy a replacement and what should I ask for.


    It almost certainly has a #2MT (#2 Morse Taper) drill adapter. Lower the quill and look for a slot on each side of the quill - that's a knockout slot. Insert a steel wedge into the slot and tap the wedge to force the Morse taper apart.

    You can buy replacement Morse taper chucks from any number of woodworking or woodturning supply places, or from metalworking supply places, or eBay. You can get them from Grizzly, Packard, Rockler, Enco, Victor, MSC, Grainger... you can buy them through Amazon, you can get them at Sears.

    You can buy the assembly as one unit or as two pieces - the chuck and the adapter. If you buy it as two pieces, be sure that the adapter and the chuck have matching tapers - that's usually a Jacobs taper like a #3JT or a #34JT, for example. It's much easier if you buy one matched unit.

    You can get keyed chucks, keyless chucks, and automatic chucks with a #2MT shank.

    What is the size of the replacement chuck key for the Duracraft DP514?


    The 1/2 inch is the max size drill that will fit into the chuck. There are only a few different key sizes, and sears sells them in their tool area. Easiest thing to do is find the size of the hole the chuck fits into by using the back end of a drill bit that fits the best. Measure that drill bit or take it with you to the store. You might find two different size keys with that size pilot hole, or maybe only one. Good luck!

    Need a chuck key for a Duracraft model 500, chuck labelled 13MM


    that is a 1/2 chuck but you would also need to know the pilot hole size and then you can go to any hardware store (Lowes, Home Depot) and buy a replacement. Check to see if the chuck has a name on it like Jacobs or something similar but I don't think there is anything special. A ROHM chuck does however take a funny looking key.

    I need a 5/8" chuck key for a Mod.1600(1984)Duracraft drillpress


    There are perhaps half a dozen sizes of chuck keys. Sears carries them. You can measure the size of the pin by finding a drill bit or bolt that fits well and taking that to the store with you. You can approximate the size of the teeth by using a piece of paper and forming it over the chuck and using a pencil to rub over the teeth. Put a hole in the paper with the bolt or drill bit to capture the radius from the pin to the teeth. If you find a couple of close candidates, buy them both. Sears will take the other one back. Good luck.

    Chuck falls out of drill press


    There is a long tapered hole in the spindle of the press known as a Morse taper. It holds a 6 or 8 inch morse taper arbor which is attached to the drill chuck. This is made to be removed frequently by putting a wedge shaped key into a horizontal hole in the drill press and giving it a little tap. This is for making tool change that involve removing the chuck. If you had two such tools (say two different style chucks) they would each have their own dedicated morse taper arbor. But there is also a short tapered cyclinder on the chuck end of the morse taper arbor, with a matching hole in the back of th chuck. This is not intended to come apart frequently, but it can be disassembled. I'm not sure which one is coming apart, but regardless of which one it is, you might try this fix. Clean up any bumps at all on the oustide of the taper and inside the hole with sandpaper 200 - 300 grit. Use a dowel to hold the sandpaper in the hole, and use the motor to spin it. --- JUST BE CAREFUL that if it grabs that it doesn't grab you! Once it's all cleaned up, you can you the press aspect of the drill press to seat it in place. You also might have to replace the arbor. They don't cost all that much and are available from Grizzly.com. You specify the particular taper for BOTH ends of the arbor. The long end is a Morse 2,3 or 4, and the short end is specific to the drill chuck manufacturer, like JT-2 (Jacobs chuck taper 2). Write back if you need more help.

    How can I disassemble a Dewalt keyless cordless drill chuck? I mean take it apart, not just remove it.


    depending on the chuck it would take special fixtures to press apart, and unless you are very good with tools you would damage it beyond repair. I have never taken a keyless apart and tried to repair and put together, I have on the other hand done the same with the keyed chucks.
