Well, for sure you can get a replacement chuck from the hardware store or from the Craftsman dealer.

How do you oil a Craftsman Air Impact Wrench Model No. 87518846


If you are just oiling the gun,hold it upside down and squirt some oil ine the air chuck fitting.(I just use an empty bottle of my wife's hair dye filled with ATF-it's cheaper than a can of "air tool oil".If you are referring to the grease fitting for the impact mechanism,look for a small hole with a captured metal ball.The only tool I found to fill this is a specially designed miniature grease gun(got mine at Sears).

Craftsman 1/2 inch air impact wrench i bought one and i don't see a chuck in the box nor do i see instructions on how to attach sockets....i've never had one before and don't want to sound like an idiot,...



  • There are no chucks with these newer impact wrenches. See that little ring on the tip of the socket shaft? That is a lock ring and that is what holds your sockets in place. You will want to keep a few 1/2 impact wrench lock rings around. There is a tool they make to aid in removing and replacing those rings but it is not necessary. You can use a small flathead screwdriver and walk the old one off and the same for replacing it. All you need to do is snap a socket on there real good and let'er rip.

Where do i get a replacement trigger, mine is


If your local Sears store can't help you, try looking to see if you have a Snap-On, Corn-well, or Matco tool distributor in your area. Many air tools are manufactured by companies who make tools for different distributors. I work in a shop, and have found that many of the tool trucks have parts that'll work on other brands of tools besides their own.

Craftsman 1/2 inch impact wrench,not working


Make sure you have at least 90 pounds of air and if you do you need to oil the wrench air tool oil pour some in the where the air line hooks up ..air tools need to be oiled daily cause compressed air cause water vapors to build up when you use it and then when it sits it begins to rust a bit and the oil stops this ...

Relace keyless chuck


It really depends on the model. Here is a general description of how to remove most regular keyed and keyless chucks from corded and cordless drills:
Some chucks have a Left Handed screw that secures them to the spindle so they do not come loose. You can look into the chuck with a flashlight and see if there is a chuck screw. (It may be a torx head, flat head, or philips head) You will need to remove this screw first before doing anything else. Sometimes there is loc-tite applied to the screw so it may be stubborn and sometimes you will strip the screw head. Remeber that the old saying lefty-loosey, righty-tighty does not apply here. Left is actually tightening a left hand thread, so you want to turn it right to loosen. I know, it will feel weird but thats the way to loosen it. You may have to apply some heat to the screw in order to get that loc-tite to break. A pencil torch works great. If you strip the head out you will have to use a drill press and drill the screw head off.
After removing the screw you can remove the chuck.
To remove the chuck, the easiest way is to use a hex socket bit and an impact wrench. Put the hex bit in the chuck, and depending on the condition of the jaws, tighten the jaws as much as possible to the hex bit. Put the impact in reverse and bump it until the chuck is loosened. If you do not have access to an impact wrench you will need to put a hex key with a long arm into the chuck and tighten it then place the drill on the edge of your bench and give it a good whack with a 3lb hammer. It may not come off immediately so you may have to reset and do this a couple of times. Not the most effective way to remove a chuck, especially if one of the jaws is missing, but that is what most manufacturers tell you to do. I myself cut the collar off with a die grinder and then use a pipe wrench on the body of the chuck applying constant pressure while heating the chuck body with a torch. Works every time. Heat is our friend on stubborn chucks. Good luck, any questions please post.

Hitachi cordless drill, removing chuck


Replacing the chuck on a drill is simple when you know the trick. I worked at a tool rental center while attending college and learned how to repair many tools. Open the chuck enough to remove the screw that you will see inside the chuck. It will most likely be reverse thread. The chuck is threaded on the shaft so just simply close the chuck on an allen socket and impact off with air or electric impact tool. If you do not have an impact tool close the chuck on-to the largest allen wrench that will fit into the chuck.(with the long part of the allen wrench projecting out) You will need to set the drill into a vise or strap to work-bench, then strike allen with hammer. Most chucks are removed with one quick impact of the hammer, counter clockwise. Do not squeese the drill too tightly with vise, we used a piece of leather to protect the drill. Good luck. Enjoy
