Question about Craftsman Drills

Open Question

I bought a 172.281290 1/2" 8AMP Rotary/Hammer Drill, Craftsman Professional in June. I used it once in the Rotary application and went to use it last night for concrete drilling in the Hammer Mode and it doesn't work. I switched it to the Hammer position on the selector but the only difference is that the chuck releases from the locked stationary position for Rotary drilling, to the unlocked position to allow it to move up and down (the hammering motion). It doesn't do anything but spin, there is no hammering motion. I can not locate the original receipt and I paid cash, but I'm almost positive I gave my Craftsman Club account when I purchased it. Can the date of purchase on that account be retrieved. I'm not looking to return it for cash, I really like the drill, it's light enough and has great power and I'd love to have it either fixed or replaced so it works properly. What exactly do I need to do? Also, do Craftsman Professional tools carry any type of extra warranty over regular Craftsman products?

SOURCE: hammer drills and rotary hammers comparison

Basically yes. Lower power units are usually titled as "hammer drills." Higher power units, usually labeled "rotary hammers," tend to be larger and provide bigger impact forces. But there are a few differences that are worth knowing: The rotary hammer usually have a chisel only feature, for light chiseling and masonry removal. Rotary hammers also have specially designed chucks that only accept bits specifically designed to fit their chuck. The special chuck on a rotary hammer helps hold the drill bit and prevents it from slipping during use.

SOURCE: Chuck broke on my hammer drill

To take a chuck off of your drill open it up all the way.
Inside there's a screw that you have to take out. It has to be turned clockwise to get it out.
You may need to struggle with it a bit because it's usually really on there tight.
Some folks even use a second drill to loosen it up and that's a really good idea if you have access to one.
Once you get the stubborn little screw out, put an Allen wrench in the spot where the bit would fit in.
If you can't turn it--and you probably won't be able to--then try using a rubber mallet to (gently) hit the arm of the Allen wrench to get it to turn.
Then you should be able to just take it out.
Put the new chuck into the drill.
Add a few twists of the Allen wrench in the opposite direction.
Tighten it up good.
Put the screw back in place and also tighten that up good.
The drill has a lot of vibration and if these aren't tight, it'll cause problems down the road.
Your drill, expertly fitted with your brand new chuck, should now be good to go.

SOURCE: Chuck broke on Skil hammer drill

As long as the new chuck threads onto the old spindle then any chuck will work fine.

SOURCE: Can't remove the chuck on a drill.

There are one-way (non-reversible) and two-way (reversible) drills. Mine is one-way. Methods for chuck removal are different for these two types.
Procedure for one-way (non-reversible) drills:
Drills of this type have no chuck screw, so one have to hold the spindle with a wrench, than to sharply strike the wrench with a hammer to spin it off.
Procedure for two-way (reversible) drills:
Open the chuck up and in the bottom is a screw that holds the chuck on the shaft.The screw turns in a clock wise motion to be removed and then you can top the chuck off the shaft.

Where do I buy brushes for GMC RHD 1050k rotary /hammer drill in Australia? Thank you.


you probably won't as the GMC operation went broke
I am led to believe that ozito took them over so there is a possibility that the ozito hammer drill will use the same brushes
It is worth a try
other than that, many electric motors use generic brushes so may be an appliance repair shop that has a lot of repairs to hand drills and small electric motors may be able to supply a set of brushes
a sample would be a big advantage when asking around

It sounds like the gear inside sheared the teeth. You can check with Craftsman to see if you can get a replacement gear.

Hammer drills types


Two drive systems are available on both the hammer drill and the rotary hammer models: 1. SDS (or Slotted Drive System) bits for hammer drills/rotary hammers allow the bit to slide in the chuck and enhance the hammering action of the tool. For most applications, these bits provide plenty of torque. 2. SDS Max bits are similar to SDS bits, but have larger shanks and come in larger sizes than SDS bits. These powerful bits are useful in industrial applications.
