Question about Makita Tools 18V 1/2" Lxt Lithium - Ion Hammer Driver - Drill Kit - BHP451
Switched long shanked phillips drill bit to shortest shenk bit on a Craftsman cordless drill driver, on which lifting the ring up releases the drill bit and dropping it locks it in place. This short shank drill bit left very little philips head exposed to drive with, and I want to get it off but lifting, dropping, and turning the ring has not released the short shank bit. I tried grabbing it with plier and lifting the ring but can't get a grip on the philips head. Tried little magnet... Any answers or suggestions?
Mix a little JB weld stick anything to head of stuck bit. let harden and pull the sucker out.

oh I hate when that happens. ushally its due to not being lined up right inside the unit. happens with my cheaper drills more so then not.
I ushally just secure the bit into my vice, and then tap the the key with a hammer to loosen the threads..
sounds like she might need a bit of oil I ushally use air compressor oil just a couple drops work for me.

if you trap the chuck in a bench vice or alike and then use the drill in reverse in short bursts until it loosens a good spray with wd40 will also aid the situation

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,
Look at this link
http://home.comcast.net/~jaswensen/machines/drill/drill.html (I verified that the link works.)
paying attention to the slider (Item 37) in the picture just a bit more than 50% down the page. Yuo will have to slide the slider in place and then use an Allen Wrench to remove the old chuck.
Sometimes you have to use a hammer and a chisel on the OLD chuck to turn it enough to loosen.
To me the chisel is the tool of last resort but you can use it to rotate the old head CCW. The hard part is preventing the motor from rotating while you use the chisel.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
