Question about Hitachi DS18DMR 18V 1/2" Driver Drill
This drill, Hitachi DS18DMR, will not release the bit in the keyless chuck. I just finished using a spade bit and had no problems. When attempting to free/release the bit the chuck will not budge. It almost rips the skin off your hands.
Any help would be appreciated, Dave
It's best not to use the drill power and your hand to try and release. Or tighten for that matter.
Set the drill down, and try using both hands on the clutch.
If that don't work, try using vise-grips or channel locks.
If that don't work, whip out of the WD-40 and let soak and then try again.
