SOURCE: The chuck no longer spins on my drill

Hi your best chance is to try ebay for one with the motor gone.
Other than that best you can do is buy another drill the same so you will have a spare battery.
You could try Skill for a gear but it probably will be the price of a new drill.

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.

I have a Milwaukee M18 cordless drill with a bit broken off inside and the chuck won't open.


Put your drill into reverse, and hold the chuck. With luck, that will loosen the chuck and the broken bit will fall out.

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.

How to use hand drills?


Use of both is the same:
- loosen "chuck" (part where bit is installed).
- insert bit (hand tighen chuck so that bit is secured)
- tighten chuck securely with chuck tool, or by holding rotating chuck with hand and pulling trigger (GENTLY or you will shave off skin!)
- put drill in forward or reverse mode and pull trigger to inser or remove screw / drill hole.

ensure that battery is charged on cordless drilll.
squeeze connectors to remove and place in charger when battery is too low to operate drill.

Having problems securing masonary Bit on 3/8 Black&Decker Drill 7


If it's an inexpensive bit, odds are it's spinning in the chuck. If the chuck key can't tighten the jaws well enough, you'll need to borrow or buy a different drill (or you could replace the chuck).

If you bought an SDS bit (one with slots milled in the shank), you're best off buying a bit made for a standard drill. It's not impossible to get a SDS bit to chuck into a standard drill, but it's difficult and they often slip loose during drilling, messing up the hole.


Take care!
