Try lubrication, and check that the retaining screw, down inside, has not come loose. failing all of that, replace the chuck.

Crashed lathe is out of center

I don't know the extent of your crash, but if the head, or chuck is not running true you will need to 1 remove the chuck from lathe, verify nothing is broken. clean up completely. and reinstall on machine. than insert something in chuck and measure center. some chucks are adjustable, noted by 3 or 4 bolts into face of chuck holding it to the mounting portion to machine head, and 3 or 4 setscrews in the periphery of the chuck to control its position. let me know if this helps, send pictures if not.

How do I connect the chuck key to the chuck key holder on the DW235G drill?

Easiest is to tape the chuck on the cord about 18" away from the plug, this way-for safety reasons, you should disconnect it before making adjustments (with the chuck in hand and you accidentally pull the trigger and bad things can happen.)

How to use the collar settings

I am assuming you are reffering to the torque setting on the transmission that is set by turning the numbered ring just behind the chuck on the drill. The ring adjusts the torque where the motor will not be able to turn the chuck any more. At the lowest setting, 1 or 2, you can hold the chuck with your hand and the motor should turn without turning the chuck in your hand. This setting would let you turn screws into threaded holes or nuts but not let you over torque them and strip out the threads. Higher settings will let you drive screws into wood to a determined depth like flush with the surface or slightly countersunk. This depth will also be affected by the hardness of the wood so if you hit a knot the depth will change. The highest settings will drive screws or bolts in very tight before the transmission will slip.

How do I use the adjustment ring on my ? back out the screws?

You're in trouble. You took the screw out and now the pin is past it's stop. You now have to remove the chuck and then pull the collar of and rotate it so the arrow on it points toward one of the numbers on the tool. Then put the two screws back in put the chuck back on and you'll have full range of adjustment in the collar. The problem is now that you overrotated the collar the clutch is at it's weakest setting and the chuck will likely be really hard to remove! Good luck!

3/8" cordless driver can't change the

If debris enters the chuck it may no longer turn for adjustment. Spray plenty of wd40 into chuck and allow plenty of time for oil to do its magic. Hold chuck/drill pointing down and turn drill in both directions to clean out debris. If chuck is too far gone, remove the center screw (backwards thread) and remove the chuck(threaded on). Replace the chuck with new generic part from Lowes (about $25.).

The chuck on my drill is hard to open and close around a drill bit. Is there a way to losen the chuck up a little?

You can apply som light lubricant spray to the threads or to the inside of the chuck and see if that helps. If not it may be permanently damaged or corroded and you may need to replace it.

To replace get you replacement chuck first, then;

Open the chuck fully. Inside the center bottom of the chuck you will normally find a reverse threaded lock screw that you must first remove. If it is hard to loosen, you may need to heat it with a micro torch or a heat gun to make the thread lock compound slip. Then fasten the smaller end of an allen key firmly into the jaws of the chuck. Engage the low gear. Then hit the longer end rapidly with a hammer to unscrew the chuck by rotating it anti clockwise.

Chuck broken

Just happened to me. Oil the chuck and let it sit and soak. Very gently, put the dril into a vice to secure it. With a pair of adjustable pliers (somthing that you can get a good grip with) attempt to work the chuck free. It works but just be gentle so you dont break anything

Is Hammer adjust collar attached to chuck?

I looked at a old schematic for the 5078 and it appears that it might come off after chuck removed. The chuck is threaded and if you have the 2 speed model, shift it to low and put a bent handle allen wrench into the jaws and chuck on workbench or block of wood with long portion at approx 30 degree angle and strike the handle, you will be hitting it counter clockwise to remove.
