3. hold the drill at the edge of the table & wack the allen key
counter clockwise & do it again as needed.
4. dewalt keyless chuck will fit but you might add a washer to insure the chuck is not rubbing the clutch collar.
5. putting it back together the other way.

SOURCE: drill chuck removal

The screw should be left hand thread and the chuck is normal thread. The 'workshop' way to remove the chuck is to remove the screw (done). If the jaws are still working then clamp a sturdy allen key in it and whack it against a workbench to unscrew the chuck. If holding the drill in the normal position you would stand with the workbench to your left and whack it down on that. If the jaws aren't working then you can grip the body in a vice and use large pipe grips or stiltsons on the chuck. Also check to see if the chuck spindle will accept a thin spanner to hold it, as this is a slightly more caring way to brace the spindle. Then you can can hold the spanner in the vice and use the allen key in the chuck and unscrew it that way.

Try using the low torque setting on the drill when reversing and something to assist you getting a better grip to hold the chuck from spinning when reversing. This may help.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Having problem to remove chuck to replace it on dewalt dc988 18v

Inside the chuck is a left-handed screw. torx (star) T20. When you get it out, take an allen wrench and (if you can tighten it up at all, tighten the **** out of it). If not, find an allen wrench, a tiny bit smaller than the space allowed. Now, get a nice big hammer. The chuck is right handed thread. And knock it, spinning the chuck off the spindle. May take a few whacks. Use the edge of a workbench to keep it stationery if need be. Please rate me

SOURCE: how do I remove the chuck off a milwaukee hole

With the lock screw removed (it's a reverse threaded screw) you can procede with getting the chuck off the drive shaft.


OK, you need to put a 1/4" or larger hex key wrench into the chuck and tighten it in place with the chuck key. Put the short end into the chuck.

Once you've done that, place the drill chuck, only the smooth part, not the part with the teeth, on the edge of a solid workbench. Now hold the chuck with the hex key (long end) at a 30 degree angle off the bench top and strike the hex key with a hammer going counterclockwise (looking at the front of the tool) to loosen the right hand threads that hold the chuck to the shaft (spindle). You should now be able to easily remove the chuck by hand at this point.

Here's link to a manual for your Hole Hawg that will also show a nice illustration of the removal method, to make it a bit easier, as well as giving you other good info about your drill. Print a copy for your files and future reference.

How do you remove or reset a stuck drill chuck


If it is a reversible drill there is almost certainly a left-handed thread screw or allen bolt through the centre of the chuck into the drill shaft and this must be removed before the chuck can be removed.

If it is a keyed chuck select low gear if there is one, fit the chuck key and then strike it sharply with a hammer to jar the chuck in an anti-clockwise direction. Usually it takes only a couple of blows before the chuck is loosened.

Keyless chucks are more problematic. I hold them in a vice and use the drill in reverse which has proved fairly successful, though sometimes the chuck is only fit for scrap afterwards.

Lots of the keyed chucks can be taken apart for cleaning and lubricating if necessary.

How do I remove the chuck from a Power Craft 810w Hammer drill


I'm not sure about power craft tools, but chucks are either screwed on or have a taper pressed fit.

If it's screwed onto the shaft, there are some tricks to getting the chuck off. (Chucks have normal threads, the retaining screw is reversed threads.)
1. Check for a flat spot on the spindle behind the chuck. If there is one you can clamp down the chuck in a vice and use a wrench to spin off the shaft.
2. Clamp down the chuck onto something and connect it to an impact wrench and try to spin off.
3. (BE CAREFUL) Clamp down on the chuck with a vice and spin the motor in reverse to try and pop it off. (Again be careful.)
4. Take it to any tool repair shop and ask them to take it off. (It's a common request.)

If it's a tapered chuck (usually on drill presses or large chucks) you can clamp something into the jaws of the chuck and hammer away from the drill. Remember to keep it steady while hammering because it probably won't come off if you're just holding in your hand. You need a strong jolt to pop it off the taper.

I HAVE A DEWALT 511 HAMMER DRILL AND I CAN'T REMOVE THE CHUCK. COULD PLEASE ADVISE ME ON WHAT TO DO.


Open the chuck fully and look inside, there should be a screw there that has to be removed to remove the chuck in view of the fact that it is a reversable drill and the chuck cannot be screwed off like a conventional inudirectional drill.

I have a makita dp3720 drill, i can't remove the chuck. what gives


Not the chuck apparently, This could well be reverse threaded, many drills are, some aren't. There is generally a screw in the bottom inside of the chuck and then the chuck itself can be threaded on.

The chucks on most drills are left hand thread. To be sure which way to turn the chuck check the screw the chuck will turn in the opposite direction.

Need to replace chuck


Not entirely familiar with this model but most chucks are secured by a screw inside the chuck. Open the the chuck to its fullest aperture and look inside. There should be a centre screw ... it will be a left hand thread. Remove the screw. Hold the chuck firmly, reverse the drill. The chuck should unscrew from the shaft. Installation is a reversal of the removal procedure.

How i remove a dewalt drill chuck Model dc988


put the drill in speed setting 1 before you continue~!

Step 1. This step loosens the screw inside the chuck. Open the chuck all the way — if you see a screw inside, it’ll need to come out before you can remove the chuck. If there’s no screw inside, you can skip steps one and two.

Step 2. If there’s a screw inside the chuck, typically the threading will be left-handed, so turn it clockwise to remove it. Be careful, and use the right size screwdriver — you don’t want to strip the screw.
step-2.gif Step 3. Insert the largest hex key that you have into the chuck, short-side-in, and tighten the chuck. Tap the hex key sharply in a counterclockwise direction to loosen the chuck. Now you can remove it by hand.
step-3.gif This won’t work for every consumer drill ever made, but pretty close. Most drills will match one of two common chuck-threading standards: 3/8′-24 threaded mount for 3/8′-capacity drill chucks, and 1/2′-20 threaded mount for 1/2′-capacity drill chucks — but on some drills just the opposite may occur. To be safe, always check the thread count before you buy a replacement drill chuck.

I have a very old 3/8'' elecric drill, I think it ia a Skil, The key chuck does not work properly and I want to replace it. How do I remove the old chuck?


If it's anything like their other drills, there is a safety screw with left-hand threads inside chuck.

  1. Turn it clockwise until loose.
  2. Then insert the short arm of a 3/8" hex wrench and tighten.
  3. Strike long arm of wrench sharply counter-clockwise and chuck should loosen to unthread from spindle.

2.) Open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
3.) With the chuck facing toward you place the key into one of the holes on the left side of the chuck. Using a wooden mallet or similar object, strike the key sharply in a counter-clockwise direction. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.
