How to insert bit for Black and Decker 3/8 Variable Speed Reversing Drill.

The Drill came with a phillips/screwdriver bit. I don't know how to insert it. I don't know what drill bits to buy and how to insert them either. My model doesn't have a chuck key or side handle.

Most new cordless drills don't have a key(keyless chuck). Put the drill in reverse and hold tight to the chuck barrel, pull trigger and the chuck will open. Opposite to close/tighten Best I can do with info provided

How do i remove the bit from the drill

This drill has a 2-level chuck handle. one is slightly larger diameter, or is closer to drill body. It is fixed to the motor shaft. Smaller diameter, or forward one is the adjustment. Hold the rear/larger one stationary and twist the smaller/forward one as if you were opening a water bottle with a really tight lid.

3/8 " corded reverable drill. the jaws will not close around bit

If the jaws of the drill no longer works, then, the drill chuck must be replaced. Take it off by turning the chuck
counterclockwise, and putting an open wrench at its neck to lock it. Then, after taking it off, you can now have it replaced.

How do I change my black & decker electric drill to go in reverse or forward? As you can see I'm tool challenged. Kathleen

The switch near the trigger that toggles left or right controls that.

Good luck with your project, Kathleen.
