SOURCE: I have a 10 year

Most of the chucks that I replace are seized or missing one of the jaws. I have a variety of ez-out bits and jam one into chuck then turn with air impact(you can use an old bolt, grind to taper with groves to fit jaws, you can be creative here, then use socket with impact ) . Works most every time. I do not like to use high torque if there is a gear ruduction drive. If I feel that I may damage gears, I will use a dremel with cutoff wheel and cut the chuck down both sides to remove outer cover, then cut into threaded part of chuck untill close to thread. Insert stout screwdriver into cut and crack open whats left of chuck. Takes about 30 minutes and may use two or three small cut-off wheels. Good luck

SOURCE: owners manual for Reliant DD55 drill press

I would chuck a good size steel pin, unlock and swivel your table over to the side, clean both the taper and the socket with brake cleaner spray or electrical contact cleaner (or even Fondu Alcohol Fuel will work) to leave no oil film at all on the parts. Also run a stone around on all the male part taper surface to check for invisible burr spots and dents left when it was tossed around during manufacturing. Dry every bit of cleaner out by waiting or blowing with a hair dryer. Then tap it in with a piece of wood against the steel pin bottom. Professional shops can make the taper match so it will transmit 5 HP or more without spinning or falling out, but many workers today just don't get the quality training or buy the measuring tools to be able to do that. My Chineese machine didn't even have the draw bar threaded with the matching thread to lock in the chuck in for it's milling head, so you know they are not a detail oriented outfit. Great Guns and all facing the one way!

SOURCE: Fleetwood 50 drill press chuck connects to the spindle how?

The chuck on 99% of the drill presses is just a press fit. The end of the spindle where the chuck goes on is slightly tapered to hold it on. Make sure the end of the spindle and inside surface of the chuck are very clean. With the motor off, raise the table high enough so you can still get the chuck on the spindle then turn the handle to lower the chuck against the table and press it firmly against the table to wedge the spindle in the chuck. There shouldn't be any need for anything more than this.

    How do I get the chuck off a hole hawg drill if shaft keeps spinning due to broken shaft

    I'm not sure about that specific tool, but usually a keyed (or keyless) Chuck has a screw hidden inside of it. Open the Chuck all the way, and shine a light in. You should see a screw down there. It'll be left hand thread (clockwise to loosen). Remove this screw, and then get the biggest Allen wrench you have, and lock the short end of the allen wrench into your chuck so it acts like a lever handle. Use a hammer to whack the Allen wrench with one swift blow to break the threads loose that hold the chuck on. You may need to find a way to hold onto the shaft to keep it from spinning. This might involve removing the case to find a purchase to hold onto with some locking pliers. If the shaft is completely broken, and loose from the drill, stick it in a vice to hold before trying to remove the screw, and the chuck.

    Try googling "removing drill chuck", and you should find some comprehensive videos on the subject.

    Good luck.

    If you need more help, post some photos of what you're working with, and I might be able to give you a better answer.

    open the chuck up as wide as possible . At the bottom of the chuck you will see a Phillips headed screw . AS this is a left handed thread screw it will you to turn it as it screwing it in to undo it. This is a lock screw that stops the chick undoing when in the reverse direction mode Once it is out then use the key in the hole and teeth and hit the key sideways sharply to unscrew the chuck of the drive shaft. Replacement is the reverse procedure. Do not loose the screw as replacement part is not available unless you have a junked drill that you can get it from

    Chuck the handle of the chuck key in the chuck.Find a drill bit that fits in one of holes that the chuck key fits in.Then use a flat screw driver to lever off of the drill bit and the teeth to tighten the chuck .Use a towel and hold the drill motor,be careful not to squeeze to tight just enough to hold the drill from moving.Use a harmer and strike the chuck key and that should loosen the chuck.A 1/4 inch chuck key will work as well.If this is a key less chuck then use a small pipe wrench and hammer on the back part of the chuck with the handle left as you look at the drill.Good Luck & Thank You for choosing

    I have a 9 in drill press and the chuck fell off while doing some hard drilling . it looks like a press fit and i wanted to be sure before i tried anything

    Some drill-to-chuck fittings are known as morris tapers, and are incredibly strong. Look in the end of your motor shaft for a screw hole. The chuck probably has a screw or bolt holding it in place once the tapers align.

    Best regards, --W/D--

    Hi i broke the chuck on my 1/2 makita cordless

    Put the biggest hex key you have in the chuck and tighten it then hit it clockwise with the spindle lock engaged a couple of times. The screw in the chuck will then undo clockwise and the chuck can be undone after by putting the allen key back in and unscrewing it anti-clockwise maybe with a light tap from a mallet.
    Hope this helps

    3/8 Drill Driver, chuck replacement.

    hi friend,
    Step 1. Determine what kind of replacement drill chuck you want - a keyed chuck or key less chuck. Over the years, key less chucks have been widely used for handheld power tool drills, due to their improving grip torque and convenience.

    Step 2. If you prefer replacement key less chucks, then you have to know what type of key less chuck you will need - a single sleeve key less chuck or a double-sleeve chuck. You can simply determine it by checking your current chuck. If your current chuck is a keyed chuck or a double sleeve chuck, then you will need a replacement double-sleeve key less chuck. On the other hand, if your current chuck is a single sleeve chuck, then you should get a replacement single sleeve chuck.


    Step 3. Confirm the threaded mount size (spindle size) on the chuck. 3/8"-24 threaded mount for 3/8" capacity drill chucks and 1/2"-20 threaded mount for 1/2" capacity drill chucks, but there are some exceptions where just the opposite may occur. To be safe, always check the threaded mount before you buy replacement drill chucks.

    hope this helps u

    How do I remove the chuck off a milwaukee hole hawg. Ihave removed the screw inside the chuck and have tryed to trun it off but it wont move.

    With the lock screw removed (it's a reverse threaded screw) you can procede with getting the chuck off the drive shaft.

    OK, you need to put a 1/4" or larger hex key wrench into the chuck and tighten it in place with the chuck key. Put the short end into the chuck.

    Once you've done that, place the drill chuck, only the smooth part, not the part with the teeth, on the edge of a solid workbench. Now hold the chuck with the hex key (long end) at a 30 degree angle off the bench top and strike the hex key with a hammer going counterclockwise (looking at the front of the tool) to loosen the right hand threads that hold the chuck to the shaft (spindle). You should now be able to easily remove the chuck by hand at this point.

    Here's link to a manual for your Hole Hawg that will also show a nice illustration of the removal method, to make it a bit easier, as well as giving you other good info about your drill. Print a copy for your files and future reference.

    That should do it! Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

    Electric motor

    You need an adaptor which would attach to the motor shaft (with a set screw) and provide threads onto which you can screw the chuck. I have never bought one of these, but possibly an internet search would yield a scource for such an adaptor.
