    First off is the chuck threaded on? secondly what do you mean by split in two, did the outer collar crack? and lastly yes you can use a jacobs chuck but make sure you tell them it is for a HAMMER DRILL. Some chucks don't work that well for hammering action

As long as the new chuck threads onto the old spindle then any chuck will work fine.

1/2 hammer drill and the chuck is broke what do I do to get. New drill or fix


Assuming that the drill is still operating, I suggest that you get a replacement chuck, To remove the old chuck, insert the chuck key in the cogs on the left hand side as you hold the drill facing outwards, then using a hammer tap the chuck key firmly so that the chuck will revolve anti clockwise. Replacing the chuck us the reverse of the above procedure.

Have a skil 597 T8 thats lost its grip - is it neccy to change the chuck - and if so can I replace the chuck with one that can open far enough to accept some larger bits?


I couldn't find your particular drill model drill. If this is a corded drill with a 1/4 inch chuck, you would do better to just buy a corded 3/8 drill. But otherwise, yes, change the chuck if you can find one to fit at a reasonable price. Drill chucks are sized to hold a straight bit of the maximum hole diameter that the drill has enough torque to drill into mild steel. If you find a larger one that will fit on your drill, it will work fine, but if you overload it you will burn it out. If you don't drill into steel with any larger bit than the original chuck, then this won't be a problem.

The chuck froze. The drill was used one time and stored in the shop. Unusually damp air caused the chuck to freeze up. I broke it trying to free it up. I need to buy a new chuck. Where can I buy parts.

My chuck is broke , on my 18v makita cordless drill , how do i fix it


Put the chuck key on and strike it with a hammer counter clockwise. the chuck key must be properly seated in the hole. Once the chuck is brokrn free, you can unscrew it my hand. Buy a new chuck an screw it in olace and againm strike the key but no as hard clockwise. It will self tighten more as it is used, Good Luck-Ned-

I have a very old 3/8'' elecric drill, I think it ia a Skil, The key chuck does not work properly and I want to replace it. How do I remove the old chuck?


If it's anything like their other drills, there is a safety screw with left-hand threads inside chuck.

  1. Turn it clockwise until loose.
  2. Then insert the short arm of a 3/8" hex wrench and tighten.
  3. Strike long arm of wrench sharply counter-clockwise and chuck should loosen to unthread from spindle.

Chuck broke on my hammer drill


To take a chuck off of your drill open it up all the way.
Inside there's a screw that you have to take out. It has to be turned clockwise to get it out.
You may need to struggle with it a bit because it's usually really on there tight.
Some folks even use a second drill to loosen it up and that's a really good idea if you have access to one.
Once you get the stubborn little screw out, put an Allen wrench in the spot where the bit would fit in.
If you can't turn it--and you probably won't be able to--then try using a rubber mallet to (gently) hit the arm of the Allen wrench to get it to turn.
Then you should be able to just take it out.
Put the new chuck into the drill.
Add a few twists of the Allen wrench in the opposite direction.
Tighten it up good.
Put the screw back in place and also tighten that up good.
The drill has a lot of vibration and if these aren't tight, it'll cause problems down the road.
Your drill, expertly fitted with your brand new chuck, should now be good to go.
