SOURCE: i need a chuck wrench/tool for a duracraft drill press

Are you talking about the chuck key? That's the little wrench with a collar of gear teeth on it.
There are only a few standard sizes plus a couple of odd-balls. Last time I looked, Sears carried a good selection. If you have the old one, take it with you to the store. If you don't have the old one, find a way to measure or approximately measure what you need. Another chuck key that doesn't fit can be a useful reference. If you can find something (maybe a drill bit) that is a close fit into one of the three holes in the chuck, that can be useful too.

SOURCE: can I take my duracraft drill press chuck apart to clean it?

usually that requires special fixtures to remove the collar and a press, I would recommend cleaning with WD-40 and wiping clean all exposed parts and if you have compressed air try using that also, WEAR safety glasses.

Ebay has chuck keys. Chuck comes in different shank sizes. There are all in one types too, fits all chucks, cheap too.

Is the chuck a know off or threaded chuck. where should i buy a replacement and what should I ask for.


It almost certainly has a #2MT (#2 Morse Taper) drill adapter. Lower the quill and look for a slot on each side of the quill - that's a knockout slot. Insert a steel wedge into the slot and tap the wedge to force the Morse taper apart.

You can buy replacement Morse taper chucks from any number of woodworking or woodturning supply places, or from metalworking supply places, or eBay. You can get them from Grizzly, Packard, Rockler, Enco, Victor, MSC, Grainger... you can buy them through Amazon, you can get them at Sears.

You can buy the assembly as one unit or as two pieces - the chuck and the adapter. If you buy it as two pieces, be sure that the adapter and the chuck have matching tapers - that's usually a Jacobs taper like a #3JT or a #34JT, for example. It's much easier if you buy one matched unit.

You can get keyed chucks, keyless chucks, and automatic chucks with a #2MT shank.

Chuck won't hold bit when making drilling a hold or trying to reverse a screw, etc.


it sounds like you will need to replace the chuck on the drill. a worn chuck or a cheep brand may be your trouble.buy a good Jacob chuck and this will most likely fix your problem

Top chuck just clicks but won't change bit size?


It sounds as though you will have to replace the chuck. Remove the screw (l/h tread) from inside the chuck first before removing it.

What is the size of the replacement chuck key for the Duracraft DP514?


The 1/2 inch is the max size drill that will fit into the chuck. There are only a few different key sizes, and sears sells them in their tool area. Easiest thing to do is find the size of the hole the chuck fits into by using the back end of a drill bit that fits the best. Measure that drill bit or take it with you to the store. You might find two different size keys with that size pilot hole, or maybe only one. Good luck!

How do I remove the chuck from a Power Craft 810w Hammer drill


I'm not sure about power craft tools, but chucks are either screwed on or have a taper pressed fit.

If it's screwed onto the shaft, there are some tricks to getting the chuck off. (Chucks have normal threads, the retaining screw is reversed threads.)
1. Check for a flat spot on the spindle behind the chuck. If there is one you can clamp down the chuck in a vice and use a wrench to spin off the shaft.
2. Clamp down the chuck onto something and connect it to an impact wrench and try to spin off.
3. (BE CAREFUL) Clamp down on the chuck with a vice and spin the motor in reverse to try and pop it off. (Again be careful.)
4. Take it to any tool repair shop and ask them to take it off. (It's a common request.)

If it's a tapered chuck (usually on drill presses or large chucks) you can clamp something into the jaws of the chuck and hammer away from the drill. Remember to keep it steady while hammering because it probably won't come off if you're just holding in your hand. You need a strong jolt to pop it off the taper.

Remove the chuck dc970


I'm assuming you have a DCD970 as DeWalt doesn't have a DC970 and the DW970 is an impact driver. The chuck on your drill is a new design that doesn't have a lock screw inside the chuck, they are put on very tight with lock-tite to hold them on. They are made to be taken off with a special chuck holder and vice jig that only service centers have. The allen wrench method used on older chucks won't work as the chuck will just loosen when you hit the allen wrench. I have on occasion removed one by doing the following: Turn the chuck fully open then secure it in a vice with the drill straight up. Holding the drill body and using the handle for leverage, turn the drill counterclockwise, as you are looking down on it, with steady, strong pressure. If the chuck breaks free it will spin off easily. If you are at all afraid you may break the handle you may have to take or send it to a service center to have it removed.
