    What is the exact model number? I don't see the DW953 being a drill press. If it is a cordless drill it is totally different. Let me know and I will help

The screw might be a TORX but use the same procedure with a torx driver.

I work in a large shop and I do most of the tool repair.  We do use DeWalt cordless guns so I have done this before.   I change these as often as they break at work.  About every 4 months the teeth fall out of a chuck and I replace the chuck with a new one.       To remove this chuck you should  use a heavy duty metric allen key and a good vise. The trick is to remove the small metric reverse thread screw. It is between 3 and 5mm.  Place the "L" of the allen key firmly in the vise with the long end pointing straight up.  Open the chuck all the way. Using a fully charged battery, place the gun in low (1st gear) and put the direction of the gun in FWD (as if you were driving a screw in), set the clutch to the drill setting (maximum torque) and drive that screw out of the chuck.  If the battery is not strong enough to drive the reverse thread screw out you will have to help it out.  Rotate the rear of the chuck clockwise and hopefully the screw will come out.  If that is not enough torque, I find the use of a small strap clamp helpful to turn the chuck against the reverse screw. Hope this helps.  Best Results!  Michael Mittelsdorf

How do I remove the chuck from my drill press


Need to know what make and model drill press you have. You could have a taper or a threaded chuck setup. If threaded it would turn opposite drilling rotation and the may be a screw inside the chuck that needs to be loosened/removed and if it is a taper you need a removal tool to pop it out with.

Where can I find a replacement chuck key for a Delta 11-950 bench press?


No you don't have to buy Delta's chuck key. MOST drill press chuck keys are very similar but if you do order another companies key and it doesn't fit, you may be stuck with it. If you have a local tool repair center that carries keys you can try one and if it don't work, return it.
The Delta part number for your chuck key is 1313104. It is avaliable from Dewalt (they own Delta) on their service website at http://servicenet.dewalt.com. You can also get it at aftermarket sites like www.ereplacementparts.com for only $11 plus shipping.

THE ABOVE DRILL HAS A 1/2" X 20 THREAD THAT THE CHUCK
THREADS ONTO. LEFT TO REMOVE AND RIGHT HAND TO REPLACE YOUR NEW CHUCK . YOU CAN TAKE A PIPE WRENCH AND AFTER PLACING THE DRILL ON THE SIDE PUT THE PIPE WRENCH AT/ON THE END OF THE OLD CHUCK AT ABOUT 2 o'clock. Once set up slap
the pipe wrench very hard/fast with a suitable hammer . It took about three times to knock the chuck loose and then I removed it with my hands. A little crude but it worked. Have a good one.

I have a model 1689 drill press with a 33 taper jacobs chuck I need to remove the chuck to put a larger chuck on is the smaller chuck threaded on and if it is, is it RH or LH thread and how do you hold the...


you dont hold it, the chuck is a taper fit and you would need wedges to remove it. the newer chuck would also have to have the same taper to work. if replacing the new chuck you would need to make sure the parts are clean, use a brake cleaner and a paper towel to clean them and then they would press together. Let me know if you still need more assistance.

- How to remove bad chuck?


Non reverse drills often do not have a screw, best way to remove is to lock drill in vice, lock a large right angle driver into chuck and give it a good crack with a hammer in an anti clock wise direction.

How to remove the chuck


You will need 2 spanners ( the size vary's from differant models) and A screwdriver (generally phillips/star). Remove the screw that is inside the mouth of the chuck (it screws throough the back of the chuck and into the chuck shaft). Then get your 2 spanners - One goes on to the chuck and the other goes onto the shaft that the chuck attaches to. Turn the chuck anti Clockwise. This may be vary hard to do as somtime they rust and cease and you may need to brace the second spanner in a bench/table vise and use a hammer to gently tap away at the 1st spanner (the one holding the chuck). I find that spraying a litlle penatrating oil on the screw and the shaft an hour before attemting helps about 80% of the time.

hope this helps

Remove and replace the chuck


Most drill press chucks are held on with a screw. Open the chuck all the way. Look inside the chuck, there should be a screw in the bottom. Some are left hand threads, some are not. Good Luck

Open chuck jaws all the way open you should see a screw or a allen screw inside the chuck, remove the screw an voila off comes the chuck. You may have to rap it with a mallet ot a piece of wood if the drill is real old.
