As you look at the drill from the top or rear, the chuck needs to be turned clockwise to loosen.

My chuck on my dewalt 18 volt comes undone in reverse its fine going forward what would be the problem


If you look at the end of the shaft on the drill after it unscrews, there will be a hole with threads inside--if not the screw may have broken off---your missing screw that holds the chuck on--it's a left handed threaded screw---it's head may be slotted--philips---torx---or allen---this is available at your Dewalt dealer or tool repair---all that needed is the size/model number of unit---screw the chuck back on tightly then open chuck jaws all the way then put the holding screw in---tighten it down---REMEMBER IT'S LEFT HANDED----GL

How to remove keyless chuck


open the chuck jaws right up
down the center of the chuck you will see either a philips screw head or a hex head for allen key
hold the shaft at the base of the chuck to stop it from turning and undo the screw in the chuck in a right hand direction ( it is a left hand thread) when you have that out , still holding the shaft turn the chuck in the left hand direction ( normal thread ) and screw the chuck off
to assist in undoing the chuck do it up so that the jaws come out a bit
place something between the 3 jaws to act as a lever or use an allen key in the chuck done it tight and use that as a lever to undo the chuck
the secret is the lh thread screw in side the chuck which stops it from undoing when the drill is in reverse

How do you remove the chuck from a dewalt 12 volt dw953 drill


Open the chuck wide open. In the center is a retaining screw, they usually have left hand threads. Remove the screw. Take an allen wrench 1/4" to 3/8" in size and fasten the short side tightly in the chuck. The chucks are usually right hand thread, so take a small hammer and strike the allen wrench to turn the chuck to the left to loosen it.

Want to replace the chuck on my table drillpress but don't know how ! It's a threaded chuck.


If it is not reversible directions, then it probably doesn't have a screw inside the chuck holding it onto the shaft like a hand drill. Some drill presses have tapered shafts and are just held in place by friction, others are threaded. If it is threaded, then it is normal right handed thread (AS THE DRILL TURNS, IT KEEPS IT TIGHT) You can try closing the chuck all the way, and with the chuck key in the chuck, strike it with a hammer to the left.

How do you remove a key chuck


Open the jaws all the way.

Peer inside, find the flat blate screw head. THIS SCREW IS LEFT HAND THREAD - NOT STANDARD RIGHT HAND THREAD.

Put your drill into a vice and snug it down gently. Put a flat blade screw driver bit into the slot. Tap the screw driver with a mallet several times. Try turning the screw driver as you tap gently. Once it breaks free, remove as usual.

With the locking screw out, put your key into the chuck and tap tthe key it to loosen the chuck. The chuck should be held onto the shaft with right hand threads ... some are different. Try each direction, gently, until you break it free.

I hope this helps you

Need to remove the chuck on my 3/8 milwaukee drill. I opened the chuck and removed the screw in the bottom but can't get it off. does it pry off or unscrew? right or left hand screw???


if this is a cordless drill please review the tip section, if not the spindle has a hex that you can put a thin wrench on and the threads are standard meaning you would use a chuck key or allen wrench to hit it in the counter clockwise position to remove it. Let me know if you have any problems

How i remove a dewalt drill chuck Model dc988


put the drill in speed setting 1 before you continue~!

Step 1. This step loosens the screw inside the chuck. Open the chuck all the way — if you see a screw inside, it’ll need to come out before you can remove the chuck. If there’s no screw inside, you can skip steps one and two.

Step 2. If there’s a screw inside the chuck, typically the threading will be left-handed, so turn it clockwise to remove it. Be careful, and use the right size screwdriver — you don’t want to strip the screw.
step-2.gif Step 3. Insert the largest hex key that you have into the chuck, short-side-in, and tighten the chuck. Tap the hex key sharply in a counterclockwise direction to loosen the chuck. Now you can remove it by hand.
step-3.gif This won’t work for every consumer drill ever made, but pretty close. Most drills will match one of two common chuck-threading standards: 3/8′-24 threaded mount for 3/8′-capacity drill chucks, and 1/2′-20 threaded mount for 1/2′-capacity drill chucks — but on some drills just the opposite may occur. To be safe, always check the thread count before you buy a replacement drill chuck.

Dewalt dc920 repair instructions chuck


To remove the chuck on your drill follow the instructions for the type of drill chuck you have:
Instructions for removing a keyed chuck
Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck.
1.) If the unit has this screw place the chuck key, with the chuck facing toward you, into one of the holes on the right side of the chuck. Strike the key in a clockwise direction with a wooden mallet or similar object. This will loosen the screw inside the chuck.
2.) Open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
3.) With the chuck facing toward you place the key into one of the holes on the left side of the chuck. Using a wooden mallet or similar object, strike the key sharply in a counter-clockwise direction. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.
