SOURCE: Ryobi impact drill compatibility with normal drill bits

Round bits are not compatible with the Ryobi impact drivers. You need the hex shank "quick connect" bits and accessories. There is an adapter available. it is basically a regular style of keyless drill chuck with the quick connect hex shank that should fit right in to your Impact.

It's the nature of the beast. It should be snug enough not to fall out, though. Virtually all cordless screwdrivers have a bit of end play to them.

Sds bit snapped in my makita bhr200 chuck.on taking the drill apart,the chuck is on a gear rod,and wont allow me to push the chuck down

You have to remove the striker bolt from inside the spindle first. to do this remove the internal circlip (not always easy) then you can tap the striker bolt out and then press the broken bit out.

I have snapped an SDS drill bit in my Bosch GBH 2000 drill. I have managed to remove the snapped bit, but now I can't get other bits to lock in. Any suggestions?

Check that you have removed all the bits from inside the spindle. Also check to see if you can see inside the spindle two fins inside the spindle (they provide the drive for the bit. Make sure that you have not lost the ball from the chuck assy and rebuilt it correctly.

Do not know how to replace spool pin and spool cap

It looks like it might just snap into place. Of course that means you have to remove the broken bits which may require a drill, small bit and needle nose pliers.

Front suspension screws for letting out pressure snapped of inside the suspension. how do i fix it and how much will it cost?

Put your bike on a stand so there's no weight on the front wheel. Take the whole cap off the top of your fork, on the underside of the broken screw as centrally as possible centre punch a mark, then using a very small drill gently drill through, increasing the drill size gradually, the drill action and the heat generated may loosen the screw if not a bit of persuasion with an impact screwdriver set clockwise should do the job.

How to remove a chuck from a DeWalt hand drill

Open chuck all the way (like for a large drill bit). There should be a set screw at the bottom (where you would put a drill bit). Don't turn too hard - it may be a left handed screw (I don't remember if it is a lefty for sure but try gently each way then with a bit more force each way until it moves).

Good luck.

Sheared Bolt Head on Boat Propeller Housing

need more detailed info like year make model bolt location? the reason, I would know how long and wide the bolt is that is broken off. Typically when a bolt gets broken you have several steps to follow and two tools to purchase to get broken bolt out. 1st The best tools to purchase and will save you a lot of headache is a reverse drill bit kit with easy outs. They are expensive but well worth the cost. With every drill bit the kit will have a easy out to match. I myself have a large kit that I use weekly because of salt water engines. Make sure you get a high quality set (snap-on, mac tool etc..) because if it breaks off you have double the work. 2nd small chisel pick and punches. (1) Take a center punch and hammer and dent the bolt for a starting point for your drill bit. (2)Again if I knew the location of the bolt I would know how big it is. Because you have to stop drilling at a certain depth so you don’t drill into the case. If you have another bolt you have taken out of the case that you believe is the same length, measure it and drill only half the length of the bolt. (3)You want a small drill bit to start, about half the size of the Circumference of the bolt. Remember these are reverse drill bits so put your drill in reverse and go very slow with light pressure. Let the Drill bit do the work. (4) use a spray lubricate like WD-40 to keep the drill bit and bolt cool, to much heat will dull you drill bit. These bolts are stainless steel so it will be a long time before you get a decent hole. (5) What I hope happens, when I’m using the drill bit is that the drill bit catches enough of the bolt and turns it out as I’m drilling. But with rusted bolts it’s a rare occasion . When you come to the stopping point of your hole clean it out and use the easy out that comes with the kit. You do not want to break the easy out in the hole so use light turning pressure. If it doesn’t come out with light pressure You need to stop and go to the next step.(6) Take the next size drill bit out of the case and start drilling again slowly with lubricant. When you reach the stopping point use the matching easy out.(7) keep following these steps until you get almost to the full diameter of the bolt. Remember bolt threads are male to a female thread inside the hole so you don’t want to drill out the threads inside the hole. (8) if you reach the female thread inside the hole and the bolt still hasn’t come out use the chisel pick softly to clean the tread inside the hole. At this point you will need to purchase one more tool. A thread tap. Take a matching bolt and match diameter and thread pitch and clean out the treads that may have been damaged with the chisel pick.(9) when the job is finally done and your ready to put the housing back on use as gasket sealing compound on all your bolt to protect them from rust do not use thread locking compounds. Have fun.

Header tried solutions offered previously

First, is the head off or is the bolt easily reachable? Your problem is common. The bits may be snapping because you are either pressing too hard or are changing angle while drill is in motion. The best thing you can do is first make a bit guide...Take a piece of steel at least 1/4" thick that is long enough to reach two adjacent bolts (use manifold as a template) drill both holes to the size of the studs. The one for the broken bolt should be substantially smaller and centered over the broken stud. Drill first with a bit of the same size you used to make the pilot hole. then go up to a size just slightly smaller than the stud, so threads are not damaged. I like using a reverse twist bit for this because the drill force and heat caused by drilling will often back the stud out. But those bits are hard to find. after the hole has been drilled, use a straight type thread remover (not an "easy out" ...they spread the stud and exert force against the threads actually making removal harder) straight type removers look a lot like torks bits and are tapped into place creating grooves that help turn the stud. you can apply some heat to the area, but generally just turn the stud out slowly, use lots of solvent and after each turn out, run it back in to clean the threads and prevent binding. Funny...It takes longer to write this than it does to actually do it!!! When replacing, put anti-seize compound on the new stud.
Good luck! Don't drive with broken will warp the manifold.

How to get a broken bolt out so i can put on the harmonic balancer

Hi poohbear
You will need to use thing called an "easyout" or  "eziout" 5c4e174.jpg
you have to drill the center of the broken bolt, then gently hammer in the eziout, to then wind the broken stud loose. You may notice that the eziout has the reverse direction thread, so the harder you wind it out, the more it winds into the broken bolt. Use plenty of penetrating oil about the stud, even let it soak for a bit. Just don't break off the eziout, they are super hard, and you will not be able to drill that one out. You can buy then from most hardware stores. Messy, but the only real way to get the the problem solved.I hate it when a stud snaps, it happens all the time, usually the last one to be undone.  Good luck.

Broken crankshaft pulley bolt on mitsibushi pajero 2.5td 1993 rhd to remove easily the broken part which is in crankshaft,pulley is off

The only possibility I can suggest is that which is called and 'Easyout.' These are available at parts stores and come (normally) with a sized drill and a special bit with left-hand threads.
First a hole is drilled with the provided drill bit, then the removal bit is screwed into the new hole and turned counter-clockwise which further inserts the removal bit and, if the removal bit does not snap, the broken threaded shank should back out.
I would suggest soaking the broken part with penetrating lubricant first and allowing it time to seep into the threads of the broken bolt.
