Not all drills are reversible. Only if they say it is.

SOURCE: I need to find out the age of a Craftsman 3/8

It must be fairly old because virtually everything for it in regard to parts have been changed or discontinued. Go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action and put in the model number. Maybe you can find something out about its age, but I don't see anything.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

SOURCE: I have an old corded 3/8

Yes, the bushings are dry, and it is screaming for oil. But, it doesn't like oil, it likes grease better, but it is hard to get in there to grease it. (sometimes), you might get it apart and both ends exposed. Then get the bushing off the end, you won't be able to get it off the front, either squish some grease in there or get the oil can out and try it. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have an old 315-11441 Craftsman Drill. I took it

With these types of electric motors there is an armature, (the main brain of the motor) it has all the copper wiring wrapped around it and slides between two carbon brushes into the armature housing. If you took out the armature, there is sometimes a very thin peice of metal at the top of the armature which slides into the plastic housing above the armarture and creates a spring loaded "seat" for the armature, if this little shim looking thing fell out, you will need to find the old one. Without this tiny peice of metal the armature in the motor will have play in it causing the brushes to wear to one side or the other prematurely, the brushes have to wear evenly. Sometimes the brushes are spring loaded as well for a self-feed type deal. If these springs are missing the same thing will happen. Also one or both brushes could be in backwards. Check and make sure the brushes (black carbon and rectangular shaped) are positioned to support the spin of the armature. Lord, I hope this helps. I worked with small electronic motors over 15 years ago. I worked at the place for a few months, and didn't think I still remembered everything,

How do you remove the chuck from a Craftsman Model #315.11441 3/8 vsr corded drill? Am trying to remove the chuck but I believe there is some type of a set screw or locking mechanism that needs to be undone. I can see a slotted screw head in the chuck Looking straight down on it but it is very tight and I don't want to break it or a screwdriver forcing it. Thanks for input. Bob

Sounds like the switch.
Get a hold of sears to see if you can get a new switch from the appliance department.
If not I would re wire the thing so it would at least run forward.

My corded drill only works in reverse


Your R/L switch is probably faulty. Sometimes the little pin on top of the switch brakes off.

Keyless drill has locked in a closed position with the drill bit


I just put mine in reverse and grasp the chuck with a pair of channel locks. Pull the trigger and hold the channel locks tightly. The chuck will release the bit.

On a model 315.101231 3/8 corded drill I need to remove the keyless chuck how do I do that?


If you open the chuck as far as it will go and look inside you may see the head of a screw, especially if the drill is reversible. So undo the screw and then you should be able to unscrew the chuck. But I am not sure if it will be easy to unscrew. With a keyed chuck you use the key and a hammer to unscrew the chuck.

I have an old corded 3/8" corded Craftsman reversible variable speed electric drill (1051). It squeals when I use it. Wondering if it needs to be oiled.

Craftsman 19.2v drill/driver lithium-ion model 315 119100 jammed


try reversing the chuck, if the gears have "climbed" over each other what ever you do will have to be backwards.does it feel locked from the gearbox or the back end? the brushes can also lock the shaft up.
otherwise faulty unit, send it back
