On this particular tool, you can't really tighten the bit in the anvil like a bit in a drill chuck. The bit is free floating but held in place by a small steel ball. The steel ball is held in place by the sleeve that slides up and down to release the ball so the bits can be changed. The sleeve is held down by a spring. Bits falling out can be caused by: Using bits without the groove in the bottom of them for the ball to catch in, dirt in the bottom of the anvil so the bit can't seat properly, the ball is missing or stuck, the spring is broke or binding, or the sleeve is bent or too dirty to slide up and down freely. Use compressed air to clean the anvil well and WD40 to clean and lube it further. If bits still fall out you'll have to take it apart and see if the ball, spring or sleeve need to be replaced.

SOURCE: How do I change the

The chuck will not turn. So to loosen just turn the black plastic counter clockwise. The chuck will loosen. Or you can hold the black part on the chuck tight and put the drill in reverse and slowly squeeze the trigger and the chuck will loosen also. Do the opposite to put a new bit in. Put the drill in forward and hold the black part of the chuck and squeeze the trigger with the bit in place and it will tighten down on the bit.

SOURCE: when in drill mode the tork still kicks in on my dewalt

there is a gear and a clutch as agier said in the head. if its old it looses its catch, youll need to take it apart and look at it. the torque setting just tightens on the head the more you tighten it the less it will give( the ratcheting you hear when you set it low) .expensive drill so its worth trying to fix. how old is it? as for drilling thru knots and hard wood make sure your bits are sharp, you can spend alot of time trying to drill with a dull bit. do you sharpen your bits? i do alot of drilling with battery drill thruout the year and believe me a sharp bit is waaaay easier. though ive never had to sharpen concrete bit because they always break when they get old and i buy new.

so your saying it stops completley when you hit something hard, right. does it ratchet?

SOURCE: Dewalt Drill DC728. Chuck came out of drill body

If you find that the end of the screw inside the chuck is actually broke then you have a gear problem inside your drill. This is actually a very common problem. Sometimes people push too hard on their drills and the gears inside wear out and break. This prevent the motor from wearing out, but, the gears have to be replaced.
If it is the gears and not the chuck. you broke the minimium of the front gear or gears inside your drill. YOU CANNNOT repair gears. they need to be replaced. you may be able to find some off brand gears to work but, you run the risk that they are not as strong as your original ones, or may not be exactly grooved correctly.
so, if replacing your chuck does not work. find replacement gears. IF you cannot find the gears from the manufacturer see about replacing your drill.
If the chuck is still good, keep it. If you buy the same model, keep your old drill for replacement parts, ie, switch, armature, cord, etc.
hope this helps somewhat.

Turn your drill speed selector to "1" and put drill direction in reverse. Hold the outer end of the chuck and push the trigger. Should come loose.

How to remove a keyless chuck from bdf452


If the head of the screw is stripped out to much for a driver to grip and remove it you have two options.
1. Use another drill to drill in the center of the screw with a bit just big enough to remove the head. With the head of the screw off, the chuck can be removed from the spindle. There should be enough of the screw remainin in the spindle that you can grip it with vice grips and remove it.
2. Using a metal cutting wheel on a grinder, you have to cut the end of the chuck off, aiming to cut just under the head of the set screw so you don't damage the spindle. After cutting, let things cool off before trying to remove the rest of the chuck and screw from the spindle.

Jaws won't tighten or loosen to hold a bit


Hmmm some times the counterclockwise screw that attaches the chuck to the drill come forward and that is how then it stucks the 3 parts that fix a drill to a chuck. Check if this screw come forward. If yes then destroy it and replace it... We destroy it by using a drill smaller than it (usually it is 5mm so we use 4mm bit and of course a CARBIDE one because even cobalt ones can not drill a hardened bolt)

The screw holding muffler on broke in half


Hi, I would assume there are two screws holding the muffler on and you are able to remove the other one. If there is any part of the screw that is still sticking out of the head, try using vise-grips and some penetrating oil. You will need to tighten the vise -grips as hard as you can and the grips must have good teeth in the jaws or they will not grip well. After tightening the vise, add some penetrating oil to the base of the screw and using small but forceful movement, rock the screw back and forth until you see some movement. Then you can undo the remains of the screw and replace. If the screw is broken flush with the head, you will have to drill out the old screw and tap a new thread in its' place. This is done starting with a carbide high speed drill bit that starts three sizes smaller and works up to the screws diameter. You will need a steady hand and some patience and also some cutting oil for cooling the drill bit. Start at the center and be sure it stays there as you drill. Use the bolt that is intact to measure the depth of the hole you're drilling, mark it with some white paint or tape. Add cutting oil often -before it starts to smoke. Once you've made the pilot hole you can repeat the process until the proper diameter is reached. Using the tap is pretty easy, again use cutting oil and make sure the tap starts as vertical as possible. Then slowly turn the tap manually until you've reached the proper depth. Now you can reattach your muffler Hope this helps.

Was given a drywall screw gun to use, but I need to change the bit to fit smaller star drywall screws. How do I remove and replace this screw bit?


I use a DeWalt and the bit should just pull off like you would a cordless drill/driver. You might need a little persuasion (vice grips or pliers) because of the constant torque placed on it.

Cannot remove drill bit from self locking chock


If you are having trouble turning the chuck to remove the drill bit just wrap a cloth around it a couple of times and use a pair of adjustable channel lock pliers to give yourself a mechanical advantage. If you have loosened the chuck but can't remove the bit just clamp onto the bit with a pair of vise grips and tap them a few times with a hammer while a friend holds the drill for you.

Makita chuckless drill stuck full open


If you haven't fixed it yet here is the way that I have used to solve this problem. Spray some WD-40 on the inside of the chuck. Place a shop rag around the chuck and CAREFULLY grip with a pair of channel lock pliers set the drill rotation so that it will extend the jaws and SLOWLY depress the trigger. It should move. Let me know if I can help more. When trying this DO NOT SQUEEZE TRIGGER to full RPM.
