Skil Driver 2336 - how to replace the battery 18650 3.6V

I owned my Skil 2336 driver for a year or two and it appeared to be dead; no power, no charge light. The red LED would come on when you pulled the trigger. I figured it was the battery, but could be the charger. New driver at Sears is $30. I found the battery on Ebay for $8 delivered (actually, the price was for two batteries). OK, let's blow $8 and see what happens. It was an easy fix.

You'll need a small, flat blade screw driver and a solder gun (with flux and solder, of course). The screws look like a small, special Torx drive, but the flat end screwdriver will work fine. Use the screwdriver to remove the four screws, and wiggle the "Skil" cover off (Maybe the other cover comes off just as easy... whatever!). It should look like this:
The battery is exposed. I checked it with a (cheap) volt meter and it reads about 5V DC. Strange, the new battery reads 5V. And by the way, the charger reads 14V DC. Just for the record, I could not get any voltage reading off the two charging connectors at the bottom of the handle, with either the good or bad battery.

Anyway, the battery has TABS. So it's a lot easier to solder in the new battery if you get a battery with tabs. The holes in the tabs are nice, too. The new battery I got was identified as GTL 18650 3.7V 2800mAh and don't forget "tabs".

The Pink wire is connected to the Positive (+) side. The Blue wire is connected to the Negative (-) side. I marked the battery as shown in the next picture:
The tabs on my new battery were longer than the original, so after I soldered the new battery in, I folded the tabs up on each end.
(In hind sight, the new tabs were covered with a black cover. I could have slid the cover off, snipped off the end and slid it back on before soldering.)
Before you put it together, you can try it out. My new battery came with a charge on it. There are two switches; one for the drive motor, and the other for the LED flashlight:
Check for any loose parts laying around and put the cover back on. It can be a little tricky, but it goes back on. Tighten the screws, and put on the charger.... Green light!

How do I drill a screw into a dry wall with a DeWalt 12v?

You need to set the clutch low an the gun. Sheet rock is olny so strong try to stay away from the edges at least an inch and you want the screw to counter sink just enough so when you have to apply joint copound the screw dosn't contact the knife when applying but not so deep into the sheet rock that is not sucure because its to deep and the sheet rock isn't strong enough to secure the peice to the stud to deep the peice will move in when force is applyed and come back out when force is released

My new drill suddenly stopped working even though the battery has been charged OK.

Is it Nano li-ion? have you got another spare battery to double- check?
I experienced the same problem with 18V Dewalt nano li-ion battery. Was fully charged, came to work- Dead!!! I was lucky I had spare one, so then i was ok, but anyways had to buy a new one. Check on these things:
1. Battery is faulty. If u have any chances to ask someone who has the same gun (voltage is very important!!! has to be the same!!!- 12V battery to 12V gun, 14.4 to 14.4, 18 to 18 etc). Put your battery into that other gun. If You find the same problem that means your battery is dead.
2.Gun with battery contacts. If you 100% sure, that batterIES (check 2 batteries, or more) are OK, check bottom contacts where u put battery in, use WD40, or similar to clean them.
3. Least common Dewalt thing (Most common in Panasonic drills) is trigger contacts.
Basically i do not know what model is your dewalt, i was only talking in general, but there are no miracles- stopped working suddenly, and what u describe new, for instance my new drill dw727kd is less than 1 year old, i was too stuppid to open that battery myself to void warranty :(
AAAAHHH!!!!!! One more thing - If you have not tried to open these screws- check your nearest Dewalt authorised repair center- new NANO batteries have 2year warranty!

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.

Need to know how to operate milwaukee screw gun?

I hope you're talking screw gun and not drill/driver. Screw gun used specifically to set screws in drywall. Make sure you have proper tip in gun (usually #2 phillips). There should be a rotating collar on the gun to control screw depth. The screw should only "dimple" the drywall. It should not tear the paper but should be below the plane of the drywall. To check depth run a putty knife over the screw heads. If you hear it hit, screws need to go a bit deeper. To work quickly; lock the trigger on and place the screw on the gun. Apply steady pressure and let the screw walk into the board until gun breaks free. Takes a bit of practice but pretty soon you'll be flying.

Can't remove the chuck retaining screw.

Place drill in vice with chuck in vice facing up . Clamp chuck lightly but with enough force to hold firmly.
put allen wrench in chuck and lightly tap down to make good fit to allen screw head.Clamp chuck jaws down onto allen wrench lightly to hold wrench steady. Take piece of pipe to end of wrench,10".
These chuck screws are tight. Hammer clockwise until screw brakes loose.Open chuck completely and remove screw.Chuck is threaded to spindle shaft . Place allen wrench with long end facing out of tool in chuck and tighten chuck securely. With hammer tap allen wrench sharply counter clockwise ( normal thread.)

New grease gun, never used. change mode switch from L to H will not engage all the way. Motor will not start.

may not be a solution, just an idea
but the switch shits actual gears, the splines may not be aligned enough to allow the transfer.
put it back in low, run the motor a few revolutions to change the alignment of the gears, then try the shift again, like a crash box on a model T
