SOURCE: Hello my drill bit holder

If you go to this URL you will see a screw that is #1 in the exploded view.

If the chuck on your drill is open you might be able to access this screw. It appears that this screw holds the chuck onto the drill and removing it might allow you to remove and then replace the chuck. I am not 100% sure of this, but it looks like a good place to start.

I can't get the release collar to release the bit from the drill.


probably need to put the bit in a vice and pull the release collar right back and use a hammer to hit the bit holder to move it
I suspect that you have used the wrong bit for the drill
there are at least 2 differences on the market and some generic bits cause this problem

I dont know how to change the drillbit in my dw257 corded drill


Do you mean the Dewalt DW257 drywall screwdriver? For that model, you need to pull the adjustment collar forward. (This part fits over the drill bit to the clutch housing.) Remove the collar completely. Then using pliers, if needed, pull the drill bit tip out of the holder. Then put a new tip into the holder. Then snap the adjustment collar back over the retaining ring. See Figure 3 on page 2 of the manual (see below for a link) to see what the adjustment collar looks like.

If you want to replace the bit holder and the drill bit tip, pull the holder straight out from the drill. (Again use pliers if it is tight.) Then push a new bit holder into the spindle until the ball lock snaps into the groove of the bit holder shank. Put in the bit tip. Then put the adjustment collar on and make sure it snaps into the retaining ring.

These are the directions for the Type 3 DW257. The manual is available here: http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?isId=true&productNumber=DW257&selectedType=6793# . From the Product Information tab, select your model type and the instruction manual will be shown in the right hand column, if it is available. The manual is available as a PDF; you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

DC212 does notlock the bits


First are you using the correct SDS style bit? They do not use just standard drill bits. They have two long cutouts on each side and two oblong ones on the opposite side. You should be able to push (and rotate to line up the slots in the bit with the tool) the bit in without touching the bit holder and it should lock into place. You push down on the holder only to release the bit. The holder is spring loaded with a small metal ball that contacts and holds the bit at one of the oblong sections.

I have a Hitachi WH 18 DFL cordless impact driver, which I love. I was doing a little bit of heavy drilling, and now the drill bit is stuck. The sleeve extends as if to release the bit, but the bit do


My guess is that the bit twisted a little in the bit holder so the steel ball is bound. If the collar moves you could try a slide puller on the bit and see if you can impact it out with the slide puller. Or you could take the bit holder apart. There is a retaining ring that holds it all together right on top. Pull that off and a washer, spring and the collar will come off. Becarefull to watch for the steel balls on the spindle. They WILL fall out! Now hopefully the bit will come out. If not it may need to be twisted in the oposite direction that it got stuck when you were using it to break it free. Hope that helps and good luck!

My dw056 breaks bits can you change the hammer to a 1/4" or 3/8" hammer they look the same on the manual


in order to make the 1/4" hex drive impact drive 1/4" or 3/8" sockets, you need a 1/4" hex adapter for sockets.

They are available at most hardware stores. While i've broken several sockets, and many screwdriver bits, I've never had an issue with with the socket adapters.

You can also get an adapter that gives you a chuck like a conventional drill.

If you've been working them hard, it's not a bad idea to remove them, and put them back in. this reduces the chance of getting the bit stuck from the repeated impact.

As far as changing the chuck of the unit to another one, i'm not sure if it's possible.

How far do you put a bit in to know it's placed correctly. I'm trying to surprise my husband by removing some kitchen cabinets, but I'm not sure I put the bit in right and I don't know how to make the...


Find the reverse switch near the trigger. Press one direction for forward, in the middle is a trigger lock and the other direction is reverse. Dont surprize yourself and have the cabinet fall on you.

If you have short bits, put about 1/2 of it into the chuck. If you have long bits (about 2 inches long), put about 1/2 inch of it into the chuck.

Be aware that when the drill runs in reverse, the chuck tends to loosen and when that happens, your bit will fall out.

If Hubby has a bit holder, I'd suggest you use that and place the bit into the bit holder. Makes for a better reach.

Good luck on your project.

Drill bit won't in securely - Black & Decker DP240 Screwdriver


I am going to assume that the bit you are trying to insert is a 1/4 hex drive. If so are you pulling or pushing on the collar of the tool holder to insert or remove a bit. Make sure that the hex on the bit is not twisted also. Let me know and I will go from there.

I have a drill bit stuck in my bosch 10.8 cordless litheon- it is


without having the exact model number for this tool I have in the past removed the outer collar on the quick release holder. After that you take out the small steel ball and the bit would come out but If you can provide the model I will look at it and see and call a friend that is a Bosch Authorized Service and see what they do in this case.
