I have a Skill 717, too. It has a hex shank. Here are a couple places that I've located that carry (some) parts:

There are basically only 4 styles of drill shanks for hammer drills. They are:

  1. Straight shank (like the standard style used in regular drills)
  2. Spline
  3. SDS
  4. SDS Max
You should also be able to look at the chuck of your drill and see if it has any of the above engraved on it, letting you know what style of bit shafts it accepts as there are a few models that will accept 1 or 2 different designs.

I believe that you Skil (Bosch) Hammer Drill can use either the staright shank (shaft) or the SDS style of concrete bits. Here's a link that shows a 3/4" bit that should work in your drill.

If you have a standard Jacobs style chuck, you can likely use almost any style bit as the chuck design will allow you to tighten any of them in it.

If you want a longer bit or antother size, you can typically find them at most hardware or big box stores.

Using my drill in its hammer mode the SD bit 'fell out'.I am now unable to re-insert the bit as the chuck doesn't allow it.


I need a model number to be able to help you.
Very possibly just a bit lock, quite often they get hung up with grease / concrete but I will need the model.

Hi Ken, sadly it sounds like the chuck is past its best. The cogs inside the chuck have most probably worn. If you can get the chuck off try clamping it in a vice and use some pump pliers to undo it. Failing that you will need a new chuck which you may be able to get at a good diy store.

What speed would i need to set my cordless drill at to put hole in wall


Your drill will drill a hole at any speed, the drill bit needs to be sharp to drill the mateirial.The type of wall material is important.Drywall is soft but a masonry bit should be used.A masonry bit has a flat bar accross the point and slower speeds are best.Wood walls / studs you need wood bits that are sharper and medium to high speeds are used.Concrete or Block walls again require Masonry bits.If very hard concrete as in foundation walls or filled block the use of a Hammer drill will work much faster.Good Luck

Have a skil 597 T8 thats lost its grip - is it neccy to change the chuck - and if so can I replace the chuck with one that can open far enough to accept some larger bits?


I couldn't find your particular drill model drill. If this is a corded drill with a 1/4 inch chuck, you would do better to just buy a corded 3/8 drill. But otherwise, yes, change the chuck if you can find one to fit at a reasonable price. Drill chucks are sized to hold a straight bit of the maximum hole diameter that the drill has enough torque to drill into mild steel. If you find a larger one that will fit on your drill, it will work fine, but if you overload it you will burn it out. If you don't drill into steel with any larger bit than the original chuck, then this won't be a problem.

I dont have the manel and need to no how to use it


The drill uses bits with the SDS+ connection end. You have three different modes of operation. Hammer drill for drilling into concrete. Drill only for drilling into wood or steel and chip only for chiseling concrete. Now for drill only you would have to change out the chuck for a jacolbs style.

The bits just snap in the chuck. To remove the bits you just slide the chuck sleeve back and remove the bit. To change the chuck you wolulld place the palm of your hand over the chuck and using your fingers pull the sleeve on the chuck that is near the red housing towards your palm and just pull off the chuck.It will snap back on the same way.

How do I fit drill in this machine please? DEWALT D25113K D25113 3 MODE SDS


Youcan only use standard drill bits with the use of a chuck attachment with the SDS type bayonet. These hammer drills use an SDS type drill bit which just pushes into the fitted chuck and are released by pulling back on the lock mechanism on the chuck.

Chuck broke on my hammer drill


To take a chuck off of your drill open it up all the way.
Inside there's a screw that you have to take out. It has to be turned clockwise to get it out.
You may need to struggle with it a bit because it's usually really on there tight.
Some folks even use a second drill to loosen it up and that's a really good idea if you have access to one.
Once you get the stubborn little screw out, put an Allen wrench in the spot where the bit would fit in.
If you can't turn it--and you probably won't be able to--then try using a rubber mallet to (gently) hit the arm of the Allen wrench to get it to turn.
Then you should be able to just take it out.
Put the new chuck into the drill.
Add a few twists of the Allen wrench in the opposite direction.
Tighten it up good.
Put the screw back in place and also tighten that up good.
The drill has a lot of vibration and if these aren't tight, it'll cause problems down the road.
Your drill, expertly fitted with your brand new chuck, should now be good to go.
