Most drill press chucks are held on with a screw. Open the chuck all the way. Look inside the chuck, there should be a screw in the bottom. Some are left hand threads, some are not. Good Luck

1/2 hammer drill and the chuck is broke what do I do to get. New drill or fix


Assuming that the drill is still operating, I suggest that you get a replacement chuck, To remove the old chuck, insert the chuck key in the cogs on the left hand side as you hold the drill facing outwards, then using a hammer tap the chuck key firmly so that the chuck will revolve anti clockwise. Replacing the chuck us the reverse of the above procedure.

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--

How do you get a drill bit or screw driver bit out of a Cordless Drill? It has been left to me. VPX 1222. I dont know how to use a drill, never had one before.


If it has a key-less chuck, hold the skirt behind the chuck proper and turn the chuck clockwise with the drill point facing away from you. If it has a chick that has a ring of teeth macnined into the outer band, you need a key to release the bit in the chuck. Keys vary greatly and if you do not have one, you will need to take the drill to a hardware shop for them to supply you with the correct size and configuration key. If you do have a key. place it in one of the three holes in the front part of the chuck, engage the gear teeth and turn the key anti-clockwise to loosen off the chuck jaws and remove the bit. If you require any more information, feel free to approach me at any time. Please rate this answer to your question.

How can I remove the chuck of a KR 110 hammer drill. The LH threaded internal screw has been removed but the chuck remains firmly fixed. I want to replace the existing chuck with a Jacob's type keyed...


The chuck is screwed on with RH threads. Lock the shaft and insert your chuck key into one of the key holes. using a plastic or wooden mallet give it a sharp tap in the right direction, this should free it up so that you can remove it. When you reinstall the new chuck us the same method to tighten the new chuck.

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

Chuck is locked open


you have three jaws in your chuck, one of them will probably have a small burr on it causing it to stick.

try this...

tap the chuck with a small hammer then try to use the chuck key gently in the opposite key hole to the hammer blows. turn chuck though 120degrees and repeat.

if this does not work chucks are fairly universal and easily replaced (i would recommend a keyless jacobs). you can get the old one off by removing the ph2 (phillips) machine screw inside the centre of the chuck... be careful!! this screw is usually soft and counter threaded... when screw removed bash off the chuck with a hammer and cold chisel...

good luck

Is Hammer adjust collar attached to chuck?


I looked at a old schematic for the 5078 and it appears that it might come off after chuck removed. The chuck is threaded and if you have the 2 speed model, shift it to low and put a bent handle allen wrench into the jaws and chuck on workbench or block of wood with long portion at approx 30 degree angle and strike the handle, you will be hitting it counter clockwise to remove.
