I just looked at a breakdown for this tool and it is not that clear. But to get an owners manual you can go to and type in your model number and look at the same schematici I did and also order a manual for about 7.50. Usually though on a drill press like that it would be a morse taper. Do you see a slot cut thru the spindle on both sides, if so there should be a tapered key that came with the unit. In that case what you would need to do it put the key in the slot and tap it with a hammer to remove the adaptor and chuck. Let me know if I can help further

How do you remove the chuck from a Craftsman Model #315.11441 3/8 vsr corded drill? Am trying to remove the chuck but I believe there is some type of a set screw or locking mechanism that needs to be undone. I can see a slotted screw head in the chuck Looking straight down on it but it is very tight and I don't want to break it or a screwdriver forcing it. Thanks for input. Bob

The chuck on my craftsman 8" drill press wobbles. How can I stop it from wobbling?? Can I get a manual for my drill. thanks.

There are a couple of different ways that drill chucks are attached on smaller tools. You didn't specify the model, so I can't help much. But here is a link to where you can usually find manuals for Craftsman. If the press is not too old, you will probably be able to find the manual here.

I need a manual for a 13'' sears drill press Model # 113213842, or how does the chuck assemlby come off?

As far as the manual goes, you can go to this is the pdf of the 113.213843 manual. I couldn't find the manual for the 842. I don't know what the difference is but it shouldn't be much. You could also search your model number at and order the manual, but the managemyhome site is free. I hope this is helpful.
