SOURCE: Black and Decker corded drill won't tighten around a bit.

the chuck sounds like it is bad or maybe stuck from rust, what you can try and do is spray some WD-40 on the jaws and then try and holding the collar with a glove and run the drill SLOWLY in forward/reverse and see if it loosens up if not you will need a new one.

SOURCE: Drill chuck is frozen

You may try to put a thick soft metal pipe (aluminium or copper) over the drill bit (longer than the bit itself by ~10 mm) so it will touch the chuck's jaws, then GENTLY hit the other end of the pipe with a hammer several times, holding the pipe a bit askew, thus trying to disengage the jaws from the lock in their thread, and try to loosen the chuck after each series of hits. Just be careful with your fingers, and better hold the drill by the chuck while hammering it - so the hits won't go to the transmission unit (sorry for description - hope it's understandable, if not - ask for clafication from me)

Why does my chuck keep loosening


First check whether you have the correct transmission setting for the bit you are using. This may affect the range over which the chuck operates and how it locks onto the bit. A conventional small-diameter drill bit may not work with a hammer drill setting. If the setting is correct, then either your hands aren't as strong as they used to be and you're not getting the chuck tight, or the chuck is worn and no longer has enough friction to hold.

Try this diagnostic: when you put a bit in, use a fine-tip felt marker to draw a line from the chuck collar (the part you turn to tighten or loosen) to the chuck baseplate. If the bit comes loose, check to see if the collar is still lined up at the same place relative to the baseplate. If it is, the chuck pieces are slipping inside; perhaps the transmission setting is incorrect for the bit chosen. If the collar has worked loose (the marks didn't stay lined up), the threading on the collar or the parts it engages could be worn.

How to get my ignition lock out


Instructions

Test fit a drill bit in the lock cylinder. You want a bit that is just smaller than the cylinder. You will be using hardened drill bits to cut through the cylinder, since ordinary bits may be damaged by drilling metal.

Lock the drill bit into the drill chuck and tighten the chuck.

production in very fast delivery! special threading taps, plug gauge

Drill a starter groove into the lock cylinder. Start the drill on a low speed and create a groove in the end of the lock cylinder. You don't need to create a deep hole, just enough of a groove so that the drill bit will not slip on a higher speed.

Increase the drill speed to the highest setting and drill out the lock cylinder. Let the drill do the work. If you force the drill into the lock cylinder, you could burn out the rotor inside the drill motor

Mybrand new RZ20 keyless chuck will not close around a bit.


If a large enough drill bit is inserted too far so it bottoms in the chuck, the jaws run into the bottomed shank and will not close beyond a certain point due to the interference. If you hold the drill bit out about 1/2 inch from the bottom, the jaws should close on the bit. I assume you have tested the chuck without a bit to verify they can close.

I have the drill, I have the bits...there is something missing to connect both. What does it look like?


Although you posted your question under Chainsaws instead of another tool forum, look at the end of the drill. Is there a hole surrounded by a cone shaped metal end? This is the chock, if you spin/turn it counterclockwise, the opening should widen to accommodate the drill bits, then spin/turn it clockwise to tighten/clamp down on the drill bit. Some drills accomplish this with an l-shaped key that has a small cone-shaped gear on the end that fits into holes on the chock. Some drills have a chockless drill, and you simply hold the end of the drill and squeeze the trigger to use power to tighten/loosen the bit.

How do I take a bit out?


It is a keyless chuck. Put the drill in reverse (chuck should spin to the left when viewed from the back) and hold the main body area of the chuck with your hand while slowly running the drill. The chuck will open (unless it is broke) and release the bit. You do the opposite (slowing running the drill in forward) for tightening a bit in the chuck.

I have a 0302-20 1/2 drill how do i remove and replace the chuck ? i have the bolt out of center.


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 FixYa.com.

Drill bit keeps coming loose


When the drill bit on a hammer drill keeps loosening up one of two things is happening. 1. The chuck is worn out and needs to be replaced. 2. The chuck is not tight enough before you start drilling. If you have the style of chuck that requires a key do not be bashful about using maximum force to tighten the chuck and move the chuck key from hole to hole and tighten it in each position. Joe
