If you open the chuck as far as it will go and look inside you may see the head of a screw, especially if the drill is reversible. So undo the screw and then you should be able to unscrew the chuck. But I am not sure if it will be easy to unscrew. With a keyed chuck you use the key and a hammer to unscrew the chuck.

How do you remove the chuck from a 3/8 electric drill


Open up chuck for largest drill bit. Look inside and you will see a screw, remove the screw. Put a pair of vise grips on the stationary part of the drill chuck, which is the part of the chuck that the tightening tool goes into. The chuck is screwed onto left hand threads. Take a rubber mallet and hit the pair of vise grips clockwise sharply, to loosen chuck. You can now do what you planned on doing. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

3/8" cordless driver can't change the


If debris enters the chuck it may no longer turn for adjustment. Spray plenty of wd40 into chuck and allow plenty of time for oil to do its magic. Hold chuck/drill pointing down and turn drill in both directions to clean out debris. If chuck is too far gone, remove the center screw (backwards thread) and remove the chuck(threaded on). Replace the chuck with new generic part from Lowes (about $25.).

Have a skil 597 T8 thats lost its grip - is it neccy to change the chuck - and if so can I replace the chuck with one that can open far enough to accept some larger bits?


I couldn't find your particular drill model drill. If this is a corded drill with a 1/4 inch chuck, you would do better to just buy a corded 3/8 drill. But otherwise, yes, change the chuck if you can find one to fit at a reasonable price. Drill chucks are sized to hold a straight bit of the maximum hole diameter that the drill has enough torque to drill into mild steel. If you find a larger one that will fit on your drill, it will work fine, but if you overload it you will burn it out. If you don't drill into steel with any larger bit than the original chuck, then this won't be a problem.

Drill chuck removal


Look down into the chuck and you will see a screw. It must be removed so that the chuck can be pried off. It should be righthand(standard thread) lefty loosey. An impact driver is my favorite tool for removeing the screw, as you must not strip it or you will have to drill it out. Once the screw is removed, put the drill in a padded vise if one is available and do what is necessary to pop the chuck off. Something with enough width to span from the chuck to the drill body can be carefully driven between the two to break it loose.

How do I change the chuck on a 5 amp skil drill. It is keyless.


If it's anything like their other drills, there is a safety screw with left-hand threads inside chuck.

  1. Turn it clockwise until loose.
  2. Then insert the short arm of a 3/8" hex wrench and tighten.
  3. Strike long arm of wrench sharply counter-clockwise and chuck should loosen to unthread from spindle.

Chuck removal


First open the chuck jaws and remove the LH chuck retaining screw. After that find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck. Put the shorter end in the chuck and clamp down on it. Put chuck on a block of wood or workbench with the long end at about a 30 degree angle so you can hit it counterclockwise with a hammer. It might take a couple hits but it will come off.
