SOURCE: Ryobi impact drill compatibility with normal drill bits

Round bits are not compatible with the Ryobi impact drivers. You need the hex shank "quick connect" bits and accessories. There is an adapter available. it is basically a regular style of keyless drill chuck with the quick connect hex shank that should fit right in to your Impact.

Contact Home Depot or Lowes in your area, they should be able to set you up or at least put you in contact with a supplier for that.

DeWalt 20 V impact. Driver ejects occasionally. Locks in correctly to start then after limited use, bit holder falls out.

These are known for the spring in the nose (#12) to fail.
Using an o-ring pick or small screwdriver remove the hog ring on the end of the bit holder (#17).
Slide the washer, spring, and sleeve off (Be careful not to lose the small lock ball)
The spring that pushes the lock ball forward (#12) is usually the culprit.

I have a bit that will not release from the chuck

Tap the end of the bit a couple of times with a light hammer. This will often shift it.

I have a husky 1/2 inch air gun, I bought the 1/2 inch impact sockets, they do not attach... They appear to small. What is the problem?

At the end of the anvil there is a retaining ring with an o-ring acting as a spring which holds the socket to the anvil. Sometimes they need to be adjusted. You can try and compress the retaining ring slightly by using a channellock plier, adjust accordingly and squeeze slightly until you get the desired tension. If you still cannot attach the socket then you will have to replace the retaining ring and o-ring as a set.

The chuck on the dewalt impact driver does not hold the bit holder in

If you go to you can enter your model number to see the parts breakdown. It can be tricky to get the retainer clip off and on but the rebuild of the bit holder is easy other than that. The spring and the steel ball are all that usually need to be repalced. Hope that helps.

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: . 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.

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!

I have just bought a Bosch GDS 18 E Impact Wrench second hand. My question is how do i keep the socket from falling off the anvil.

A hand ratchet wrench uses a ball to hold the socket on the shaft. Impact wrenches use a ring. The ring is needed for the high speeds.
There should be a groove on the end of the socket end. That groove should have a round or flat ring in it. That ring keeps the sockets from falling off. It is missing go to Bosch for a replacement.

Locking mechanism came off my impact

you pulled the retaining ring off the end of the chuck shaft. Not to worry go to and type in your model number and it will take you to a page where you can download a schematic on the repair of this.

Stuck bit

I have a thought. How about drilling a small hole from the back(motor side) of the driver assembly and then push out the bit with a small punch? I have considered this, but I don't know yet if the driver is hardened. If this works, the problem should be solved for all users. Then the remaining isue is finding the proper grease for reassembly
