Question about Drills

1 Answer

Hello, I am looking for an exploded diagram of a Fobco ''STAR'' drilling machine in order to dismantle and fit new bearings. The chuck removal is proving problematical, I need to remove it in order to get to the bottom bearing to see the method of securing it. Can you help please. Regards, Brian Hunt

    Hello efs perpends,

    Many thanks for your interest, greatly appreciated. In fact I have already seen both of these links, and am currently waitng on Tony for prices on the replacement bearings. After a great deal of pondering I have been able to completely strip the machine down and am just waitng on the new bearigs. It is a remarkably well made machine, and it is far better to restore an old machine of this type than to buy a modern poorly made one. It is so robust and solid, lot's of heavy cast iron used.

    Regards, briary9.

    Glad to hear it! I "restored" a cheap bench top import once and in the middle of a job the chuck came apart on me, so it's definitely worth it to have some quality steel and workmanship when you get down to the business of actually drilling...Yours sounds like a sweet machine with quite a fan base.

Craftsman 19.2v drill. What is process remove the chuck. The back side of it has 17mm dual flat spot. I tried 17mm open end thin bike wrench but I cannot get the chuck to unscrew. I need it off in order to...


Hi Charles! The chuck is fixed to the spindle by a bolt (with Ph2 or hex head), you can find the bolt head if you look directly into the chuck (with its jaws completely opened). You'll just need to fix the chuck (with your hand most probably), and unscrew that fixing bolt (might be with left-hand thread! - don't use excessive moment, first try it gently both ways). After removing the bolt you'll just need to gently tap the bottom of the chuck - through a piece of wood - with a hammer, to remove the chuck from the spindle. Gently is the key word - in order not to damage the chuck and ball bearings/gear set of the drill.
Below are 2 reference links from Craftsman and Sears Parts catalogue - may help you as well.

Require a 10mm and a 13mm Male-fitting Keyless Chucks


I suggest that you do not proceed, Keyless chucks can be problematic especially if dust /debris from material being drilled gets into the chuck. I have had to remove the Keyless chuck from my B&D drill and replace it with a keyed chuck- no problems since.

We have a chuck that got jammedand broken, is it possible to remove the chuck only and replace it or do u only get the whole front section with chuck. And if the chuck can be removed, how do u remove it....


Hello,

With the chuck open as far as possible, look within the jaws of the chuck for a bolt or screw head that attaches the chuck to the shaft. Remove the bolt/screw and remove the chuck. Some chucks can also be screwed onto the shaft, so look for signs of threads at the base of the chuck. Otherwise, once the bolt/screw is removed, tap along the outside around the chuck with a plastic hammer to loosen the chuck. Penetrating oil will help.
Take your chuck with you to a "big box" type hardware store, where a replacement should be available. Any well stocked hardware store should be able to help you. I have found that the somewhat smaller hardware stores are usually staffed with knowledgeable persons, and getting a replacement ordered is easier. One is more likely to be stocked in the larger stores.
The name brand of the chuck isn't as important for a replacement as is the correct shaft size and style of fit.
Best regards, --W/D--

Hello my drill bit holder is stuck open and the fingers that hold the drill bit won't come out of the housing no matter how hard I turn it.


If you go to this URL you will see a screw that is #1 in the exploded view.

If the chuck on your drill is open you might be able to access this screw. It appears that this screw holds the chuck onto the drill and removing it might allow you to remove and then replace the chuck. I am not 100% sure of this, but it looks like a good place to start.

How to change the drill head


If you man changing the chuck, take out any drill bits and look down into the chuck. You will see a screw holding it on. On many drills this screw has a reverse thread so it loosens in the opposite way to regular screws. You have to undo this screw to remove the chuck, then fit a new one of the same spec or one suitable for the drill and reassemble in reverse order.

I have a McCraw Edison 1/2 drill model 3241T2and need a new chuck where can I find one.


Hello,

If your chuck is a stanard type, fully open the jaws of the chuck and look inside the chuck to see if there is a retaining screw.
If there is one remove it (more than likely it will have a reverse thread).
Using the chuck key in the chuck, knock it with an hammer to loosen it.
You should be able to get any chuck from a local tool shop to fit your drill.
