Your chuck is jammed. You can use a punch that is the same size as the jaws and a small hammer. You can tap the jaws back with the punch ever so slightly. Tap on each jaw the same amount of times. Start on one jaw with one tap, then to the next, and then to the third. After tapping each try to turn the chuck to open. This will dislodge the jaws slighlty and you should be able to move it. Keep doing this until you can open the chuck or remove the bit. After removing the bit spray some lubricant into the chuck and work it back and forth the whole length of the jaws. If this does not work you can put the bit in a vise and use a rubber or soft end hammer to hit the chuck off the bit. In this case you will have to replace the chuck. There is probably a bad spot in the jaws that is stripped.

How to fix a out of round drill press chuck (ToolKraft 350B


The chuck could be threaded like an average power drill.

Respectable drill presses use a hollow quill shaft that is likely to be machined into a taper that is likely to be number 1, 2 or 3 Morse taper.

Morse taper drill bits are used a lot - the shank is tapered and will grip and drive when inserted into the quill with just a small force. When the bit is to be removed the quill is turned by hand until a slot in the quill lines up with a slot in the housing and a wedge-shaped steel tool is slid in and tapped breaking the taper fit.

Most such drill presses are supplied with a chuck for light duty drilling already mounted. The chuck is often a Jacobs type mounting by means of a Jacobs taper onto a Morse taper adaptor.
The adaptor is tapered at both ends - at the lower end the taper is steep and the chuck must be pressed on with some force. The upper end will have the same gentle taper of the Morse taper drill bits and is removed in the same way.

Using the chuck drilling is limited to the capacity of the chuck, typically 1/2" or 5/8" unless blacksmith's drill bits are used that have stepped shanks.
Morse taper drill bits will allow heavy duty drilling far in excess of the chuck capacity.

Hopefully your problem is caused by the chuck rather than a bent quill.

I have a Milwaukee M18 cordless drill with a bit broken off inside and the chuck won't open.


Put your drill into reverse, and hold the chuck. With luck, that will loosen the chuck and the broken bit will fall out.

You have to remove the striker bolt from inside the spindle first. to do this remove the internal circlip (not always easy) then you can tap the striker bolt out and then press the broken bit out.

Drill chuck stok in the thigt possition cant get the bit out ; cant make de chuck to open or close


Sometimes this happens when you have a drill bit that slip. Take a pair of channel lock pliers, and try and turn the chuck counter clockwise. Do it sharply so the drill doesn't turn. IF that still doesn't work put the drill in reverse and try the channel locks again
