Question about Dewalt Drills
I can see no slot for a screwdriver in the bottom of the chuck shaft. I've viewed your videos on removing the chuck but I can't see any way to remove the set screw. Is there one?
Dewalt's DW106 does not have a set screw inside the keyless chuck to hold it on. This means the chuck was put on with enough lok-tite and torque to keep it on under most circumstances so getting it off will not be easy. If you're using the allen wrench-in-the-chuck method, give it a good firm whack until it breaks free.

Inside the chuck is a left-handed screw. torx (star) T20. When you get it out, take an allen wrench and (if you can tighten it up at all, tighten the **** out of it). If not, find an allen wrench, a tiny bit smaller than the space allowed. Now, get a nice big hammer. The chuck is right handed thread. And knock it, spinning the chuck off the spindle. May take a few whacks. Use the edge of a workbench to keep it stationery if need be. Please rate me

It should have a retaining screw as far as I know. It may be a torx head in this machine though. Normally left hand thread screw, then normal thread for the actual chuck. It's always worth tightening the chuck a bit before removing the inner screw as it can put pressure on it and make it harder to loosen.

Open the chuck jaws and you will see a screw in the center of chuck, it is left hand thread. remove it and use a large bent handle allen wrench putting the short portion in the jaws and tightening. Shift the drill to the low position and have the clutch in the drill only position. place the handle of the wrench at about a 30 degree angle to strike it counterclockwise. put the chuck on a block of wood or workbench and hit it, this might take a couple times but it will come off. Let me know if you still need help

If you find that the end of the screw inside the chuck is actually broke then you have a gear problem inside your drill. This is actually a very common problem. Sometimes people push too hard on their drills and the gears inside wear out and break. This prevent the motor from wearing out, but, the gears have to be replaced.
If it is the gears and not the chuck. you broke the minimium of the front gear or gears inside your drill. YOU CANNNOT repair gears. they need to be replaced. you may be able to find some off brand gears to work but, you run the risk that they are not as strong as your original ones, or may not be exactly grooved correctly.
so, if replacing your chuck does not work. find replacement gears. IF you cannot find the gears from the manufacturer see about replacing your drill.
If the chuck is still good, keep it. If you buy the same model, keep your old drill for replacement parts, ie, switch, armature, cord, etc.
hope this helps somewhat.

first remove the chuck retaining screw LH thread, next shift the tool to the drill only position and the low side. Find a bent handle allen wrench and insert the short piece into the chuck and clamp down, place the chuck with the long portion at about a 30 degree so you can strike it counter clockwise, usually a block of wood or work bench will do and then get a hammer and safety glasses and hit it, it might take a couple times but it will come off
