Yes, the bushings are dry, and it is screaming for oil. But, it doesn't like oil, it likes grease better, but it is hard to get in there to grease it. (sometimes), you might get it apart and both ends exposed. Then get the bushing off the end, you won't be able to get it off the front, either squish some grease in there or get the oil can out and try it. Good luck.

Usually the squealing comes from the bearings. they are sealed, you will need to break the drill down and identify what parts you need.
If you just need oil then clean and oil it but if you need the bearings then remove them completely. I say this so if you break something you can order any new parts at the same time.
If you don't have the parts breakdown sheet then you can sears or order on-line. Have the model and serial number ready.

How to wiring the power cord to the F/R switch?


Will need more information: make, model, etc. A corded drill motor can be AC or DC. It can be variable speed on not. An AC motor can be reversed by changing the magnetic polarity of the start winding (switching the two start winding wires). This type of wiring in not usually variable speed. A DC motor is reversed by changing the electrical polarity of the primary motor leads. Usually these type of devices have a rectifier circuit to produce DC voltage and use a PWM signal to develop variable speed.

Lock the spindle (small chrome button near the tool's nose or lever at the power switch). You'll probably need to rotate the spindle by hand as much as one full turn as you do this, to get the lock to drop into place.

With the spindle locked, use your supplied wrench to turn the collet nut counter-clockwise (as seen from the cutter end) about one full turn. The collet should now be plenty loose enough to release the cutter / wheel / drill.

3/8 " corded reverable drill. the jaws will not close around bit


If the jaws of the drill no longer works, then, the drill chuck must be replaced. Take it off by turning the chuck
counterclockwise, and putting an open wrench at its neck to lock it. Then, after taking it off, you can now have it replaced.

The switch near the trigger that toggles left or right controls that.

Good luck with your project, Kathleen.
