    Turns out a small metal piece that goes on the end of the tension pin got misplaced when I disassembled it. I have since found it and now the drill works great. Thanks

How do I remove chuck on a dewalt right angle drill dw960?

Open the jaws and look inside. You'll see a fastener. Some have Phillips head or an allen wrench. Use the proper tool to turn the fastener counter clockwise to remove the fastener. You may have to help the chuck off the spindle if it sticks.

How do I remove chuck that has jammed fully open on Bosch Drill GBS 21-2?

Worked for Me .Put the drill in reverse, firmly grip the chuck (the part you were calling the head) and gently squeeze the trigger up the point that you cannot hold on. If you hear clicking, and it doesn't torque very much, you need to turn the torque setting up to the maximum (the highest number, or the drill setting if it has one). If it still doesn't budge and you're not able to hold the chuck against the force of the drill, you may want to use something stronger than your hand to hold the chuck. A strap wrench is well designed for this task and won't damage the chuck.

Makita bhp453 chuck screw wont loosen

The chuck screw on drills is put in with lok-tite and is reverse threaded. You need to get the screwdriver on it firmly and turn it clockwise, as you are, with strong, constant pressure until it breaks free. Don't let the screwdriver slide out of the screw slot, if you round off the screw head you'll have to cut the chuck off. If it still won't break free, try putting the drill in a vice or use a screwdriver with a hex nut molded into the driver shaft so you can use a wrench for some more torque.

The DCD950 drill has a chuck that does not require the reverse-threaded lock screw. It is put on with lok-tite and a good deal of torque. It is hard to remove without the Dewalt vice tool to hold it but not impossible. Some can be removed by tightening the chuck in a vice and, using the drill handle for leverage, apply steady, even, strong pressure until it breaks free. Using this method usually bends the part of the chuck in the vice making it useless. Another reason for the chuck not turning when the motor is turning is a broken transmission. If the chuck works properly in tightening down and releasing bits, your problem may be in the transmission. If you go to and search for your model number you can look at a breakdown of your drill and what you're looking at to replace the transmission.

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.

I have 2 dewalt 18 volt hammer drills. The first one died about 2 years ago. The trigger seemed to mess up. I took it apart several times thinking I could fix it. I finally gave up on it. It's laid...

Hi, Take the drill apart using a star driver. When taking the chuck assembly from the yellow section have the drill chuch down to stop bits falling out. Once handle is apart popout the triggger assembly. Remove the two power leads from the assembly. Try a direct connection to the battery (polarity doesn't matter. If the motor goes it means that the trigger is U/S. Put a tester across the terminals (either set). You may have a short (as I had). It appears to me that the trigger is not user servicable. I used one from a DeWalt recip saw with a mod on the reverse lever. Works well.

Good luck.

I have dw980 cordless handrill dis assemble because is not running/operate when i squis/press the trigger. and when i put it back assemble it its works now but i have 4 pcs of small pin i forgot where to...

Sounds like they could be the pins from the front of thh gearbox/clutch area. Can you turn the chuck/spindle fully by hand when the trigger isn't being pressed? If so then these are the pins that help to lock the spindle for tightening/releasing the chuck. You wil need to take it all apart again I'm afraid as I'm pretty sure you won't be able to get them back in the right place from the chuck end. They sit between the gearbox output plate and chuck spindle plate (both parts should be a sort of 'bow tie' shape) and they jsut sit independetly in there, two each side.

Can't remove the chuck retaining screw.

Place drill in vice with chuck in vice facing up . Clamp chuck lightly but with enough force to hold firmly.
put allen wrench in chuck and lightly tap down to make good fit to allen screw head.Clamp chuck jaws down onto allen wrench lightly to hold wrench steady. Take piece of pipe to end of wrench,10".
These chuck screws are tight. Hammer clockwise until screw brakes loose.Open chuck completely and remove screw.Chuck is threaded to spindle shaft . Place allen wrench with long end facing out of tool in chuck and tighten chuck securely. With hammer tap allen wrench sharply counter clockwise ( normal thread.)

Black & decker pivot plus bits are stuck

I had this problem too, an unfortunately, there's no manual on the black & decker site for this product.
I figured it out though! You have to push down (towards the motor) the chuck collar (cyllindrical black part which holds the bit). If you've tried this already, try harder - it can get really stuck and require a lot of force to push down.
Anyways, if you apply enough force, it will give and allow you to remove whatever bit is inside.
Hope this helps.
