Can't remove old drill chuck. No screww head visible

I am replacing a keyless chuck on a B&D KR650CRE. I have the new part which has a screw to attach it as I expected. However looking into the old chuck I cannot see a screw head to unscrew. It looks like a smooth dics with a dimple in the middle.

Thanks for your help in advance

    Hi Dave

    Thanks for your response. As you can't find the model I am wondering if I have posted this in the correct section. The drill is quite a common household drill and appears in the internet if you type in KR650CRE. I still cannot seem to twist, pull or otherwise get the old chuck off and am unable to find a Black and Decker shop in my area, I am in Bradford BD16 1PL. Any further help would be great fully received. Thanks Jimmy

Easy removal!

1. Unscrew all screws on side of drill. (The side with the screws will lift off and nothing will be disturbed.)

2. Lift out the chuck and gear shaft. It is all one piece. (Nothing will fall apart.)

place vice grips around the shaft just behind the chuck head. ( clamp the vice grips extremely tight.)

3.Place the chuck head (pointed down) in a very heavy vice and tighten the vice very tight. Push or pull the vice grips counter clock-wise. ( I situated my vice grips so I could give a sharp pushing blow with the palm of my hand.)

4. Should break free immediately!

5. You will probably want to pay me a lot of money for helping you solve this problem, but it is not necessary.

I can't find that model number in their database but I would guess that the chuck that is on it now is for a non-reversing tool and therefore would not have the hole for the chuck retaining screw. As long as the threads are the same I don't see a problem putting it on. Let me know if I can help further. Dave

    K here is what you need to do. Find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity. Put the short end into the chuck and lock the jaws down on it. Put the chuck on a block of wood or workbench have the allen wrench at about a 30 degree angle in the counterclockwise position and strike it with a hammer. It might take a few tries but that will usually remove them. Let me know

Removing chuck

You don't say which drill you have, but this is one method.

Remove the left handed screw from inside the chuck, put the drill into low gear then lay the machine on it's left side, fit a suitable spanner on to the slot behind the chuck and arrange it so that the spanner is against the work surface. Put the chuck key into the chuck and give it a hard blow so you knock it in an anti clockwise direction. If it is a keyless chuck or you don't have a key try holding the short end of a large allen key in the chuck and knock the long end in a anticlockwise direction. This will work even if you don't have a spanner to fit behind the chuck but you might have to hit it harder. If you have a vise after removing the screw hold the chuck in a vice and fit the spanner behind the chuck and turn it anti clockwise.

My keyless chuck will not tightten all the way closed....seems to catch on something

Open the chuck and see if the screw inside the chuck has backed out. The screw is left hand thread so you will need to turn it to the left to tighten it. It may be an allen or Torx head screw.

How to fit a bosch keyless chuck

remove the old one. check inside the throat of the chuck to see if it has a screw. if it does turn it left to right. if no screw good. take a very large allen wrench and place in chuck tighten it. place it on a flat surface, bench edge, where the chuck is free. lift the allen wrench up higher than level and take a large hammer and hit it down hard. this will break it loose from the spindle. when you go back with the new one put never seize or grease on it some it won't bind. next time you change it it will come off easier.

How do i replace the jacob chuck on a hilti hammer drill?

Open the jaws of the chuck all the way open. Inside the chuck you will see a slotted screw. Use a large flat head screw driver and remove screw. It will have left handed threads.

After you remove the screw put the end of the chuck in a vise where the 6 flats sides are. Put the drill in low gear and reverse. Hold tight and turn on the drill. This should run the chuck right off the spindle.

The screw mentioned in solution number one is a left hand thread once you have removed it use an allen hey in the hole the screw came out of as if undoing a normal right hand thread a scarp blow with a hammer may be neccesary. then do the opposite when installing new chuck

How to change a chuck on makita 8444 drill

Hi there, the chuck will screw onto the spindle of the drill but there is also a screw to undo. Open the chuch out fully then look down the centre of the chuck and you will find a philips head. The thread on the screw is opposite to the normail way so instead of undoing to the left, undo to the right.there should be threadlock on the screw so may be abit tough for the first turn. Once removed a strong pair of grips and a good tug should then remove the old chuck, some are more orqard than others to remove so just keep trying.

Chuck jaws on Makita 8444D fell out

There is suppose to be a flat head Left hand thread chuck screw in there. It may have fallen out. You will not be able to put the jaws back into the chuck. You will have to replace the chuck with a new one. If you make sure that the chuck screw is not there you can remove the chuck with a couple of steps. Make sure the drill is in it's lowest gear. Use a strap wrench or some large vise grips on the chuck. If there is still one jaw in the chuck make sure it is all the way open and locking the collar to the chuck. The chuck will come off in the regular lefty loosey configuration. It may be stubborn. If this is the case, You may have to cut the collar off the chuck and use a pipe wrench. Or bring it to a professional to get it changed out.

New keyless chuck for panasonic drill ey690

Can'y find anything with the model number furnished, but generally to replace a chuck on a cordless you first have to remove the chuck screw LH threads and then shift the tool to the LOW position and the clutch to the drill only. Find a bent handle allen wrench about the same size as the chuck capacity and lock the smaller end in the jaws. Put the chuck on a work bench or block of wood with the handle at about a 30 degree angle so that you will be striking the wrench in the counter clockwise position, you might have to hit it a couple time but it will come off
