Hi,
That will vary depending on the hardness of the wood...the main thing you want to do is get the screws seated tightly without splitting or sinking them in too far.... you just want them flush...play with the setting till you get that... you will not ruin the the head... that is the least of your worries...

Need to remove chuck on new BOSCH DDS181-02 18v cordless drill. No screw evident @ bottom of chuck-only small 1/16" hole. How do I remove chuck?


There is supposed to be a Phillips head LH thread screw in the chuck. I have seen the screw head worn down so you can no longer get a screwdriver to work.
We usually cut the chuck off with a metal chop saw just at the screw - thread what remains of the chuck off, which usually leaves 1/4" of the screw sticking out of the spindle - remove with vise grips.
Its not an easy prospect when that happens.

How to Remove Drill chuck from LxFD01 Makita drill


The screw in the bottom of the chuck is reverse threaded (left tight, right loose). It is also lock-tited so will be hard to remove. Make sure you have a screw driver well seated in the screw and turn it backwards (clockwise) to break it free. Once that is out, lock the short end of an allen wrench (at least 3/8" to 1/2") in the chuck. You'll have to lay the drill on a bench with the long end of the allen wrench hanging over the edge so you can hit it with a hammer hard enough to break the chuch free from the anvil. The chuck is threaded left loose, right tight so hit the wrench to turn the chuck counter clockwise. When you replace the new chuck use a small drop of lock-tite on the anvil threads and screw if it doesn't have some on it already.

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.

Is it a torx or allen head screw that holds the keyless chuck on a Dewalt Cordless Drill model # dw959. If it is a torx, what size is it ? Is it a right or left handed thread ?


don't know the sizes for the screw but it is the wrong way threads. when you get that out you need a very large allen wrench in the chuck and tight. lay the drill body on a work bench and hit the allen wrench hard to break it loose. it unscres normally.

How to replace chuck for DC759


First of all, open the jaws of the chuck and look inside. If there is a screw in there you should be able to do this yourself. If there is no screw (sometimes torx/star head, sometimes flat/straight head) then yo uwill need to take it to a service agent/dealer as a special jig is needed to lock the spindle/chuck.
If there is a screw you need to remove it. It will be a left hand thread so turn it clockwise to remove. It will be proabbaly be tight as it will be thread locked in the factory. Once this is removed, clamp a 10mm allen key in the chuck adn steady the drill on a workbench. The actual chuck will be a normal thread so this is removed by turning it anti clockwise. It will take a sudden impact to start it off so put the gearbox in a low gear and turn the clutch to 'drill mode'. Holdong the machine steady you can hit the allen key sharply to start undoing the chuck. It may take several hits to get it going.

I need to remove the chuck on my Bosch 33618 Brute cordless drill. How do I do it?


You must remove the inner chuck retaining bolt first, it is a torx screw and is left hand thread. once you have this screw out, get yourself a 1/2" allen key (the L kind). Chuck the short end in the chuck to grip it, use a mallet to hit on the long end (this will unthread the chuck). The spindle thread is regular Right hand thread. It may take a few good hits to knock it loose but it will come off.
