Question about Drills
The keyless chuck has always been hard to open and close now it's frozen shut on a bit. can it be replaced with a keyed chuck?
Yes call 1-800-sawdust that's the Milwaukee factory number. They can tell you what the spindle and thread sizes are so you can order a keyed chuck. They should even be able to tell you what chuck they have that will fit it.

1. Turn the screw clockwise to take it out.
2. Then you needs 3/8 allen key & insert the short side of the allen key & tighten the chuck.
3. hold the drill at the edge of the table & wack the allen key
counter clockwise & do it again as needed.
4. dewalt keyless chuck will fit but you might add a washer to insure the chuck is not rubbing the clutch collar.
5. putting it back together the other way.

These units have only been out for a short while and most are on warranty. Take it to a Bosch Service center in your area and they will replace the front of the unit. Unfortunatly this is a problem with this type of unit. The bit will deform slightly from the impacting action and lock itself in the chuck.

if chuck is wide open ,look down inside there should be an allen screw or bolt at the bottom of the chuck it should undo anti clocwise and the chuck comes off

Look at the three jaws in the chuck,if on is further out than the others the you need to tap ti back into place with a small punch and a hammer.If this does not work then you need to replace the chuck,remove the screw at the bottom of the chuck[where you put the bit],then you will need to to clamp vise grip on the chuck and with it pointed away from you hit the vise grips with a hammer with a sharp blow downward and it should come off.Hope this helps.
