Question about Garden

1 Answer

I am trying to figure out how to change the bit on my router. It's a dewalt. Do I push in the button on the side? If so I cannot get it to fully engage. Or, do I loosen the nuts? There are two of them and they turn but then tighten again.

I have a hauck duett and i cant fold it down via instructions. Hauck sent me a nee chassis but yet still can fold down

A fully assembled & fully set up stroller of this model is folded by a sequence which must be followed in the proper sequence without negating any steps.

•First, remove all occupants & carry-ons (including a carseat or ANYTHING excess or optional).
•Second, press the release button(s) (Item/Process #1 in Figure 22a of the instruction manual) aside the push handle while both pressing the button (Item/Process #2 in Figure 22b) in the middle of this push handle & pushing the push handle down (Item/Process # 3 in Figure 22b).
•The push handle will drop parallel to the cross-member connected to the wheels on that side of the stroller; & the cross-member braces will "click" into place as the stroller is fully lowered.

Usually when such products do not fold, it is not because of the chassis (unless it has sustained damage or unless there has been/will be a recall due to a chassis problem). Non-folding situations are often caused by obstructions such as at/in any of the hinges or rotating/sliding parts, by release buttons/levers that have not been fully deployed, or by braces that have not been properly snapped into position. Notification of recalls is one of the benefits of registering the product with the manufacturer, but more than likely, something is obstructing the folding movement or a release lever/button has not been fully deployed.

DC212 does notlock the bits

First are you using the correct SDS style bit? They do not use just standard drill bits. They have two long cutouts on each side and two oblong ones on the opposite side. You should be able to push (and rotate to line up the slots in the bit with the tool) the bit in without touching the bit holder and it should lock into place. You push down on the holder only to release the bit. The holder is spring loaded with a small metal ball that contacts and holds the bit at one of the oblong sections.

A dewalt dcd970 18v xrp and when i try to unscrew anything the bit comes loose. Can't figure out why?

check the inside of the chuck at the bottom(open the chuck to max). There should be small screw there with either a hex or a Phillips head. It is a left hand screw that locks the chuck in place and will not let it unscrew when you are removing parts.. If it is not there then you will have to get one from an old drill that is junk unless you can get one from an electrical appliance shop the repairs drills.

How do you change the bits? I can't figure out how to lock the bits in the drill

just push the collar back towards the drill motor as you push the bit in. some you have to turn and push in. If you push the bit too hard the collet might not release. If it's rusty it'll be diffacult to push back.

How to connect 1/2 inch router bit into dewalt router

Are you asking how to put a router bit with a 1/2 inch shank into a router with a 1/4 inch collet? You need a 1/2 inch collet. Most routers with a 1/2 inch collet can also use a 1/4 inch collet. But smaller routers cannot use a 1/2 inch collet.
If this isn't clear, please ask again.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a DW958 18v drill and it runs and the bit spins, but if you put your finger on it, it stops. might be a gear problem? How do i fix?

These tools have panetry gearboxs to give maximum torque foe lightweight gearing. A common problem with the older DeWalt drills was the gear selector legs coming adrift. This is (potentially) an easy fix. First of all, the obvious stuff. Remove the battery and press the trigger to release any static/stored power. Undo all the screws and seperate the two halves. Try to keep all the internals in the back half like this...

Now check the metal legs coming down from the gear selector slide. They should be sitting through the sides of the gearbox, and located into the sides of a ring gear. They used to pop out of this gear which would stop it being pushed fully into position.

Different Bit shanks

Those with larger bit shanks can hold larger blades. For large joinery cuts, buy a router with a large bit-shank diameter.
