How do I remove a keyless chuck from my Sears drill.

The screw has been removed but when I insert the allen wrench I can not get the chuck loose. Which way do I turn the allen wrench?

Thank you for any help.

The chuck is screwed on with a normal thread, the screw in the centre (already removed) is left hand thread. Holding the drill with the open end of the chuck facing you, it should unscrew anti clockwise. It might take an impact to start it off. I normally put the gearbox to slow, set the cluth to drill and then holding the drill firmly, hit the allen key against the edge of my workbench. Bring the drill down like a hammer blow so the allen key hits the bench (which should be on your left). I find this more effective than holding the drill on the bench and hititng the allen key with a hammer as it allows for less drill movement at the point of impact.

How do I get the chuck off a hole hawg drill if shaft keeps spinning due to broken shaft


I'm not sure about that specific tool, but usually a keyed (or keyless) Chuck has a screw hidden inside of it. Open the Chuck all the way, and shine a light in. You should see a screw down there. It'll be left hand thread (clockwise to loosen). Remove this screw, and then get the biggest Allen wrench you have, and lock the short end of the allen wrench into your chuck so it acts like a lever handle. Use a hammer to whack the Allen wrench with one swift blow to break the threads loose that hold the chuck on. You may need to find a way to hold onto the shaft to keep it from spinning. This might involve removing the case to find a purchase to hold onto with some locking pliers. If the shaft is completely broken, and loose from the drill, stick it in a vice to hold before trying to remove the screw, and the chuck.

Try googling "removing drill chuck", and you should find some comprehensive videos on the subject.

Good luck.

If you need more help, post some photos of what you're working with, and I might be able to give you a better answer.

Keyless chuck drill just spins


Some times the selector on top get gummed up with dust, it just needs cleaning. You were right to put it into 1st gear to remove the chuck with a big allen key, you get more resistance in the gears.

The chuck has a left hand threaded screw inside. Turn to the right when removing the screw. Once the screw is removed you can remove the chuck by turning it to the left as it has standard, right hand threads. It is easiest to insert a large, L shaped allen wrench into the chuck, tighten the chuck, and hit the wrench with a hammer to spin the chuck off.

Hello, how do I change the drill bit


There are key and keyless drills and some have a quick connect spring device. To change the unplug then chuck open it all way & insert screwdriver. Most chuck screws are left handed (turn right to loosen) some drills have no screw inside the chuck. Insert a large allen wrench and tighten next hit the allen wrench counter clockwise to remove the drill chuck.

Remove and repair or replace keyless drill chuck


Remove the REVERSE-THREAD screw at the bottom of the chuck. Set the clutch collar to the highest setting, and set the gear to the slowest setting on the transmission. Remove the power source! Get the biggest allen wrench you can fit in the end of the chuck(the shortest leg) and tighten the chuck down around it, allowing the jaws to rest and tighten on the flats of the wrench. Lay the drill on its side(chuck toward you, handle to the left, and allen wrench to the left, horizontal to the deck). Then with a hammer(soft hammer if you care about the allen wrench) quickly and deliberately hit the allen wrench in an attempt to cause the allen wrench to spin counter clockwise. Let me know if this works for you!

Place drill in vice with chuck in vice facing up . Clamp chuck lightly but with enough force to hold firmly.
put allen wrench in chuck and lightly tap down to make good fit to allen screw head.Clamp chuck jaws down onto allen wrench lightly to hold wrench steady. Take piece of pipe to end of wrench,10".

Can't get the keyless chuck off cordless Makita 6095D drill.


If this is a newer tool it is probably a Torx drive screw usually a T20. The screw is LH thread and after removing it you will need to put some screws back in tool to remove the chuck. First shift the gear selector to the low setting and the clutch to the drill only. Next get a bent handle allen wrench about the capacity of the chuck install the short end of wrench in chuck and tighten. Put the chuck on a block or wood or a workbench to support is and turn the wrench to about a 30 degree angle in the counterclockwise position. The chuck has standard threads so you want to hit the wrench with a hammer to loosen it. This might take a few tries but it will work. Good luck
