The only way to get it off now is with a grinder and metal cutting wheel. Lock the drill body in a vice with the chuck out of the vice jaws. Wear safety goggles and do not stand or let anyone else stand in the plane of the cutting wheel while cutting, you will have lots of sparks and if the wheel breaks peices will stick into things. You have to make a judgement call but you want to cut just at the head of the stripped screw. It's a lot of steel to get there so be patient and work carefully to remove the tip of the chuck. Once the tip is cut off you may be able to grab what's left of the chuck with a vice grip or lock it in the vice and turn it off the drill. If not, you'll have to make a cut length wise in the chuck so you can split the base and remove it. Be careful not to go deep enough to cut into the anvil or back far enough to cut into the drill body and trans. After making the cut put a chisel in the cut and hit it, hard, until the chuck body splits.

SOURCE: removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck

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.

SOURCE: Replaceing chuck on a Dewalt Dw511 1/2" hammer drill.

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

SOURCE: Dewalt Drill DC728. Chuck came out of drill body

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.

SOURCE: Having problem to remove chuck to replace it on dewalt dc988 18v

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

How do I get the chuck off of my DeWalt DW 117 1/2" VSR Drill Serial #1229?


Open the chuck jaws and look down inside the chuck. You will see a screw head that is holding the chuck to the drill. Once you remove the screw, the chuck should pull off easily.

Does a Dewalt 106 have a set screw?


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.

How can i remove the chuck from my cordless dewalt power drill


Hello, W/D here.

To remove your chuck, open the jaws of the chuck fully, but don't open them so tight that they lock in the open position. Remove the screw inside the chuck. Spray the inside of the chuck with penetrating oil. Tap around the edge of the chuck, while pulling it away from the motor.
It should come right off, with a little effort.

Best regards, --W/D--

Remove dewalt chuck that is stuck


down inside the chuck head itself is a allen head screw,, it has reverse threads on it. if you have already removed this screw and the chuck is still stuck then you will need to use a small gear/pulley puller to get it to release.
(( note: if you do not have access to a puller -- stop by you local Dewalt repair shop and I am sure that they will pull the chuck off with their puller at no charge to you )).

How to remove the chuck?


open the chuck fully and it shoudl have a screw inside. Unscrew it, but be carefull, these screws are usually reversed - to uncsrew, rotate it clockwise. Once done, put allen key into chuck (short side in), fasten the chuck to hold allen key well and hit the key with hammer - counterclockwise direction. You might want to verify this procedure with someone else as I have no experience with Dewalt, but this way it works for Makita, Metabo, Narex, ... then why not for Dewalt? Juraj

How i remove a dewalt drill chuck Model dc988


put the drill in speed setting 1 before you continue~!

Step 1. This step loosens the screw inside the chuck. Open the chuck all the way — if you see a screw inside, it’ll need to come out before you can remove the chuck. If there’s no screw inside, you can skip steps one and two.

Step 2. If there’s a screw inside the chuck, typically the threading will be left-handed, so turn it clockwise to remove it. Be careful, and use the right size screwdriver — you don’t want to strip the screw.
step-2.gif Step 3. Insert the largest hex key that you have into the chuck, short-side-in, and tighten the chuck. Tap the hex key sharply in a counterclockwise direction to loosen the chuck. Now you can remove it by hand.
step-3.gif This won’t work for every consumer drill ever made, but pretty close. Most drills will match one of two common chuck-threading standards: 3/8′-24 threaded mount for 3/8′-capacity drill chucks, and 1/2′-20 threaded mount for 1/2′-capacity drill chucks — but on some drills just the opposite may occur. To be safe, always check the thread count before you buy a replacement drill chuck.
