I can not found screw to remove chuck what can i do then

It may just be held on by the threads and locktite. I just replaced one recently and it was just like that. The spindle shaft should have two flats on it. Use a wrench (you may need to grind down the thickness of the wrench to fit the shaft. And it is most likely metric) on the shaft. If possible put a large, l shape allen wrench into the chuck and tighten it. Place the tool on the ground and keep pressure on the wrench. I will often place my foot on the wrench to hold it firmly to the ground. Using a large hammer hit the allen wrench in a counter clockwise direction. The chuck will be right hand thread. IF it had a screw that would be left hand thread. After you give the allen wrench a few good hits with the hammer it should loosen the chuck. The chuck should be 1/2"-20 thread which is common on 1/2" capacity chucks. It should be easy to find a replacement chuck. Use blue locktite and reverse the removal process to tighten the new chuck onto the tool.

Makita6095D remove chuck

Open the chuck and inside there's a screw to hold the chuck on the spindle. It is reverse threaded so turn it to the right (clockwise) to get it out. Most of these have thread lock on them so they're hard to get started. Then put the short end of a 3/8-inch allen wrench in the chuck and tighten the chuck down. With the drill in a vice or firmly held on the edge of a work bench, strike the long side of the allen wrench with a hammer to brake the chuck free of the spindle. Hit the allen wrench to spin the chuck off in counter-clockwise direction (the opposite direction the screw was turned). Once it breaks free it should spin off easily.

I've just bought my b&d cordless 14v hammer drill but the instructions were just a few pictures. one of them was of an allum key in the chuck and hammer striking it but i dont want to damage the drill....

Hi. Try the drill at slow speed without any drill bit in the chuck. Look closely to see if the chuck wobbles off centre whilst holding the drill firmly. If it does then there is a good chance that the chuck is loose from the body. If it seems ok then next close the chuck (tighten it closed) to see if all the 3 jaws are lining up ok and open it again to see if the jaws retract back down the chuck smoothly. (jaws are the small parts inside the chuck that grip the drill bit) If the chuck it seems loose then you can use a long allan key to tighten it up which is inside the chuck. If the jaws do not operate properly then i would suggest taking the drill back to b&q for them to fix, or replace the tool as it should still be under warranty. Good luck

I need to change the chuck assembly. i have removed the screw from the center,but i am not able to remove the chuck. any suggestions on removing it without damaging the drill will be greatly appreciated.

Get a large 90-degree allen wrench. It's best to use the largest allen key the drill can accommodate, at least 3/8" to 1/2". Put the short end of the allen key in the chuck and, with the long end of the allen key pointing straight up, completely tighten the chuck.

Firmly holding the drill on the edge of a table, you're going to have to hit that allen wrench with a hammer, hard. Use the flat side of a hammer to hit the allen wrench so that the blow will spin the chuck counter-clockwise. Sometimes it can take a real hard swing, so swinging through smoothly helps.

Drill bit keeps coming loose

When the drill bit on a hammer drill keeps loosening up one of two things is happening. 1. The chuck is worn out and needs to be replaced. 2. The chuck is not tight enough before you start drilling. If you have the style of chuck that requires a key do not be bashful about using maximum force to tighten the chuck and move the chuck key from hole to hole and tighten it in each position. Joe

My chuck is broke , on my 18v makita cordless drill , how do i fix it

Put the chuck key on and strike it with a hammer counter clockwise. the chuck key must be properly seated in the hole. Once the chuck is brokrn free, you can unscrew it my hand. Buy a new chuck an screw it in olace and againm strike the key but no as hard clockwise. It will self tighten more as it is used, Good Luck-Ned-
