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.

I have an old Bosch CSB420-E electric drill. I want to remove the key chuck. There is no screw in the chuck, so have no idea what to do. Grateful for any suggestions. Thanks

You have to secure the armature or gear assembly that the chuck is attached to and rotate it counter clockwise to remove from the shaft. Warming it to 150 degrees F should make it slightly easier to turn.

3/8" cordless driver can't change the

If debris enters the chuck it may no longer turn for adjustment. Spray plenty of wd40 into chuck and allow plenty of time for oil to do its magic. Hold chuck/drill pointing down and turn drill in both directions to clean out debris. If chuck is too far gone, remove the center screw (backwards thread) and remove the chuck(threaded on). Replace the chuck with new generic part from Lowes (about $25.).

Makita 6301LR right angle drill How to change speeds within the right angle assembly ie how to get the damn thing apart! It's off the drill body. Now how to proceed? Also: what are the hi and low...

OK first you need to remove the drill chuck from the spindle, you should have an allen wrench and an open end wrench, remove the chuck retaining screw it is left hand thread, after removing there is a drift pin that is inserted in the hole of the drill chuck and the wrench fits on the hex of the spindle, place the assembly on a block of wood with the pin at about a 30 degree angle so that you have the wrench as a support and would be hitting the pin counter-clockwise to loosen and remove, after removing the chuck screw it onto the OTHER spindle and tighten in the opposite manner, replace the screw and reinstall the RAD onto the drill, this will change the RAD (right angle drive) speed. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck

I have a DC927 and a DC926 that I removed 1/2" Rohm Supra SK key-less chucks on. This process is pretty simple. Put the drill motor in 1st gear. Put the clutch ring in drill mode and not in driver or hammer. Reverse or open the chuck all the way. Hold the chuck firmly in a vise and give the drill a good POP counter clockwise. The last step can also be done with a pipe wrench by placing the drill on a work bench and turning the chuck counter clockwise. Continue to un-thread until the chuck is removed. The replacement chuck must have the same mounting process and mechanism. Put a few drops of locktite on the threads and thread the replacement chuck back on. Tighten the chuck using the vise or pipe wrench. Place the short end of an allen wrench in the chuck and tighten down on it. Placing the drill on a work bench, strike the allen wrench with a mallet to finish tightening and locking down the chuck. Congratulations, you have just changed out your chuck.

Removing the dewalt DC925 'rohm' chuck

I simply placed the chuck into a large vise and turned the drill counter clockwise and the chuck spun right off no problem without damaging anything!! It does have some thread lock on the chuck but just use your man strength and its as simple as turning the lid off the pickle jar! Do not waste your time or money with the removal tool...YOU DONT NEED IT!

Removing the chuck on a dewalt DC925 cordless drill.

I just changed the chuck on my 18 volt xrp half inch hammer drill,yes first you must remove the torx screw with #15 torx bit,note this is a left handed thread screw,knowing the bad chuck was bad I added some heat from a propane torch to the chuck then making sure it was in 1st gear i took some vise grips and the chuck is screwed on with normal right handed threads,it broke loose (was stubborn but needs a lot of torque )ahhhhhh wat a pain.
