Question about Craftsman Drills
Chuck goes loose in mid drilling causing the bit to slip. Do I need to get a new chuck, drill?
If you have a keyed chuck then yes as the jaws are not parallel any more from wear. If keyless then the thread inside the chuck cover is damaged and not tightening properly. So again yes a new chuck will be the answer.

SOURCE: chuck will not release bit
the Chuck should be 2 Part.
Use 2 pair of stillsons Or pipe wrenches, Tight On the 2 Chuck Parts, Crack in opposite Directions.
Alternative, Use Wrench On Chuck Jaw, Short sharp Blow With Hammer.

What size bit are you using if it is real small it may be below the min sixe require for that chuck .If it is say 1/8 or larger it may be time for a new chuck .They are easy to replace open the chuck as far as you can there is a screw inside them most of them are left hand threads just back it out and tap the chuck loose with a hammer .Make sure you know the threads of your chuck when you buy the new one most are 1/2-20 but some can be 3/8-24 tpi

Most chucks have a tolerance the cordless drills where designed for drill bits 1/8 and larger the 3/8 chucks are a little better with the smaller bits .Check your owners manual and see if they have a min requirement listed for the bit size

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.
