SOURCE: How do I change the chuck on a 5 amp skil drill. It is keyless.

If it's anything like their other drills, there is a safety screw with left-hand threads inside chuck.

  1. Turn it clockwise until loose.
  2. Then insert the short arm of a 3/8" hex wrench and tighten.
  3. Strike long arm of wrench sharply counter-clockwise and chuck should loosen to unthread from spindle.

SOURCE: how do i take out

Hi ladogers,

Welcome to fixya!

This drill has a keyless chuck. To remove the bit, just turn the chuck to the right (looking from the handle to the front) to open the jaws. To put in another bit, tighten the chuck to the left to close. You have to use both hands. You will see where the ridged portion of the chuck is in two sections. Hold on to the back section with your left hand to keep it from turning while you turn the front section with your right hand.

A lot of the time I just push the button to put the drill in reverse, hold on the front section of the chuck and turn it on. It will loosen by itself. Then when you put the new bit in, put it in forward and hold on to the chuck and press the switch. The bit will be in nice and tight.


Good luck,

Please place a vote when you accept this solution.
Thanks,
Handie Andie

Have a skil 597 T8 thats lost its grip - is it neccy to change the chuck - and if so can I replace the chuck with one that can open far enough to accept some larger bits?


I couldn't find your particular drill model drill. If this is a corded drill with a 1/4 inch chuck, you would do better to just buy a corded 3/8 drill. But otherwise, yes, change the chuck if you can find one to fit at a reasonable price. Drill chucks are sized to hold a straight bit of the maximum hole diameter that the drill has enough torque to drill into mild steel. If you find a larger one that will fit on your drill, it will work fine, but if you overload it you will burn it out. If you don't drill into steel with any larger bit than the original chuck, then this won't be a problem.

Skil charger & batteries won't charge


The only thing I suggest is taking your Skil driver to a Bosch service center (Skil is now owned by Bosch) and they will replace the charger under warranty if the driver is less than a yr old. If not those chargers are not that expensive. Either way you need a new charger because they are not repairable.

SKIL 18V BATTERY PACK


There are three visble screws and one hidden. Use the right size torx driver if you have it, or a small allen wrench works too and undo the screw that is visble on one side of the pack. Snap the false bottom off of the pack and reveal two more screws to remove. One screw is behid a plastic cap over a fourth obvious screw location. Drill the cap and unscre this screw also. Be sure there are no lables holding the two side together. Pressing down on the battery holdin clasp makes the sides easier to separate. Watch for falling parts. That's it!
