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-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.

SOURCE: removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck

It should have a retaining screw as far as I know. It may be a torx head in this machine though. Normally left hand thread screw, then normal thread for the actual chuck. It's always worth tightening the chuck a bit before removing the inner screw as it can put pressure on it and make it harder to loosen.

That's a tough one. I guess you have no choice but to drill the head off the screw. I do not know the size of the screw, however.

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

Removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck


I have a DC927 and a DC926 that I removed 1/2" Rohm Supra SK key-less chucks on. This process is pretty simple. Put the drill motor in 1st gear. Put the clutch ring in drill mode and not in driver or hammer. Reverse or open the chuck all the way. Hold the chuck firmly in a vise and give the drill a good POP counter clockwise. The last step can also be done with a pipe wrench by placing the drill on a work bench and turning the chuck counter clockwise. Continue to un-thread until the chuck is removed. The replacement chuck must have the same mounting process and mechanism. Put a few drops of locktite on the threads and thread the replacement chuck back on. Tighten the chuck using the vise or pipe wrench. Place the short end of an allen wrench in the chuck and tighten down on it. Placing the drill on a work bench, strike the allen wrench with a mallet to finish tightening and locking down the chuck. Congratulations, you have just changed out your chuck.

Removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck


I simply placed the chuck into a large vise and turned the drill counter clockwise and the chuck spun right off no problem without damaging anything!! It does have some thread lock on the chuck but just use your man strength and its as simple as turning the lid off the pickle jar! Do not waste your time or money with the removal tool...YOU DONT NEED IT!
