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.

How do you remove a chuck from a Skil Model 569 drill? Thanks


If there is not a screw at the bottom its most likely threaded on, they will be left handed threads. I have never removed one of those but i would open the chuck as far as it can go, find a way to lock the motor up and use a strap wrench on the chuck. hope this helps.

The keyless chuck on my Makita HP2071F Drill (mains supply) is damaged. How do I replace it?


Open the chuck up fully, and in the bottom there is a reverse threaded lock screw that needs to be removed. (drill it out if you have to, it can be really hard to retrieve). Insert an allen key into the jaws of the chuck and hit the handle with a hammer to turn the hole chuck anti clockwise, firmly and quickly. Replacement is reverse but not so dramatic. Sometimes the chuck is damaged in such a way that it will not grip an (large) allen key sufficiently. You can then peel of all plastic parts of the chuck to expose the core. From here you can weld a metal pice to the chuck in place of an allen key. Take care not to damage the threaded axle from the gear.

good luck

I have a hitachi dv18dl and the chuck is broken i just need to no what type of screw is in the chuck so i can remove it? thanks


THE CHUCK SCREW IS EITHER A TORX BIT, POSSIBLE 20 TORX OR ITS A PHILIPS OR SLOTTED SCREW, REMEMBER THE SCREW IS LEFT HAND THREAD AND ALLOT OF THE TIMES IS LOCTITED IN SO IT DOESN'T UNSCREW WHEN THE ITEM IN THE CHUCK SLIPS AND RUBS ON THE TOP OF IT. IT SHOULD REMOVE FAIRLY EASY!! MAKE SURE WHEN REMOVING THE CHUCK THE TOOL IS IN LOW GEAR/ DRILL MODE OR YOU WILL FIGHT IT FOREVER AND POSSIBLY DOEING DAMAGE TO THE CLUTCH/TRANNY ASSY. THE CHUCK WILL UNSCREW STANDARD THREAD, SHOULD BE A 2 MINUTE PROSSES TO REMOVE THE CHUCK UNLESS ITS ON REALLY HARD. JIMS TOOL SERVICE

The chuck on my drill is hard to open and close around a drill bit. Is there a way to losen the chuck up a little?


You can apply som light lubricant spray to the threads or to the inside of the chuck and see if that helps. If not it may be permanently damaged or corroded and you may need to replace it.

To replace get you replacement chuck first, then;

Open the chuck fully. Inside the center bottom of the chuck you will normally find a reverse threaded lock screw that you must first remove. If it is hard to loosen, you may need to heat it with a micro torch or a heat gun to make the thread lock compound slip. Then fasten the smaller end of an allen key firmly into the jaws of the chuck. Engage the low gear. Then hit the longer end rapidly with a hammer to unscrew the chuck by rotating it anti clockwise.

Removal of chuck


Harold, Have you tried looking from the top? Maybe you can put a rod into the spindle from the top and give it a tap. Al Kupchella

How do I replace the chuck on a bosch 1199vsr?


If there is a chuck bolt in the center (where the bit goes) remove it (left hand thread). The chuck is threaded onto the splindle(right hand thread). On some of those drills they have a small hole in the housing that lines up with a hole in the spindle. Put a pin punch in to lock the shaft so you can unthread the chuck. If you clamp a 3/8" allen wrench in the chuck it acts as a good handle. If there are no holes to lock the chuck, if you lay the drill on a bench and give the allen wrench a sharp blow with a rubber mallet it will unthread the chuck. If the chuck is damaged and will not hold an allen key you will have to cut the spindle off and replace the chuck and spindle.

Hope that helps

Keyless chuck grip is stripped inside and the chuck is stuck in a tightened position. Can I get a replacement chuck grip and how do I get the chuck assembly off the drill, if that's necessary ?


second question first. No you cant just buy the grip, you have to buy a replacement chuck, shop around for best price, second you have to get the jaws opened up to remove, couple different ways, but first go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number for a parts explosion. Next if the grip is damaged can you put a pair of pliers on it and turn the collar to loosen it? the jaws have to be retracted to remove the chuck screw (LH threads), what you need to do now is put the drill in the drill only position and the tool in low range. Find a bent handle allen wrench and lock in the jaws, put the chuck on a bench or block of wood and wrench at about a 30 degree angle to strike it counter clockwise, you might have to hit a couple time but this will work. Let me know if I can help further.

Removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck


I simply placed the chuck into a large vise and turned the drill counter clockwise and the chuck spun right off no problem without damaging anything!! It does have some thread lock on the chuck but just use your man strength and its as simple as turning the lid off the pickle jar! Do not waste your time or money with the removal tool...YOU DONT NEED IT!

Removing the chuck on a dewalt DC925 cordless drill.


I just changed the chuck on my 18 volt xrp half inch hammer drill,yes first you must remove the torx screw with #15 torx bit,note this is a left handed thread screw,knowing the bad chuck was bad I added some heat from a propane torch to the chuck then making sure it was in 1st gear i took some vise grips and the chuck is screwed on with normal right handed threads,it broke loose (was stubborn but needs a lot of torque )ahhhhhh wat a pain.
