Question about Drills
The instruction manual says to insert a drill bit all the way but small drill bits, such as my 3mm masonry bit are to short to do that and still function. Then when I use the hammer drill function, the bit gets pressed back into the drill. Is there a way to remedy this?
If you are drilling in masonry with a masonry bit you don't need to have the hammer function on
Just put it on reg drill and just apply a little pressure you will start to see dust come up when you have applied the correct amount.
Have a Great Day.

What size bit are you using if it is real small it may be below the min sixe require for that chuck .If it is say 1/8 or larger it may be time for a new chuck .They are easy to replace open the chuck as far as you can there is a screw inside them most of them are left hand threads just back it out and tap the chuck loose with a hammer .Make sure you know the threads of your chuck when you buy the new one most are 1/2-20 but some can be 3/8-24 tpi
