This sounds like stripped gears, happens if you switch the gears while unit is running. you have to disassemble and replace what is damaged. Not always very easy for a home repair, consider a tool shop for this task.

Cant seem to get 1 st gear on my dewalt dcd960

Other then it being something simple such as the actual shifter itself, the gearbox on those is somewhat complicated. Quite a few parts and you really have to disassemble and inspect everything. Not easy to do so you may not want to try and repair it yourself. Here is the parts diagram so you can see what's in there.

Runs but doesnt engage rotary or hamer. the machine itself looks in great condition its called bosch buldog extreme.

there is a selector knob on the side that controls the tool functions for drill only/hammer with drill/ and hammer only. make sure it is in the proper setting. If it still doesn't rotate then you have a gear or a broken selector. If no hammer then you have worn o rings or a stuck ram. try the selector first and if still no change please be more specific if no hammer at all, or no rotation even when selector moved.

Fix the flexible drive shaft has a problem

The Metal Clamp referenced clamps directly on the end of the '2-Piece Gear Box Assembly'. The gear box assembly is an aluminum casting held together by 3 machine screws. The Metal Clamp does not actually lock the drive shaft housing into the gearbox assembly. The flexible drive shaft cable engages the engine output shaft, and the gear box assembly. This is a fixed length (non-adjustable) assembly.

First ensure that the drive shaft assembly is fully engaged at the quick connect fitting and that the "snap" is engaged. Then make sure the knob is fully tightened. The quick connect allows you to quickly switch between various attachments offered on this unit.

Now, based on your description, it sounds like the 'anti-rotation screw' 791-182519 has backed out or is gone. This will allow the entire cutting assembly (gearbox forward) to slip off of the drive shaft housing and disengage the flexible drive shaft. If your cutting assembly is attempting to rotate while in operation, or the drive is not engaged as you described.
Do not continue to operate the unit until you get this fixed as you could strip out the drive shaft end or cause other serious damage to the equipment or yourself.

If it is the anti-rotation screw, then make sure to push the drive shaft housing firmly into the gear box and ensure to align the holes in the drive shaft housing and the gear box. If the screw is lost, then find one similar sized, but be CERTAIN that it is not too long as it will actually engage the flexible drive shaft and prevent rotation, or cut the drive shaft.

Back to the clamp: If it is still wanting to move, then remove the lock nut and place slightly oversized washers on the bolt head and the lock nut. This will force more pressure (does not take much) on the clamp and will lock it down.

I just fixed mine today (071809) in fact and had to drill a new hole in the drive shaft housing as the original was completely wallowed out.

I hope this helps.

Timing off

If the worm gear is located on the bottom of machine that has link connected to the bobbins and shuttle case.Before you engage the two gear the worm gear and the helical gear besure to adjust the position of the needle holder at the lowest dead center position and the bobbins and shuttles case was hooked up properly with the needle no thread inside also unplug the ac source before doing this.Assuming all at zero time order,you can freeely move the shuttle case with the bobbins at the center of the needle because there are no link connection when you disengage
the two gear.After setting up all at rest gradually engage the two gear and tight the allen screw no motion at all linkage when doing this otherwise changes of set up will occurs you can't get the perfect time order.If all are set, manually by hand rotate handwheel gradually if there obtruction on motion of all parts,they should be freely move on the right rotation.if OK put thread on bobbins winder set to bobbins and upper threat top spool.Set the proper tension on both lower and upper thread acquired to fabric,try too hook up the lower tension manually, If ok sew cotton fabric as trial manually only no power supply yet
until you acquired normal sewing If no problem persist.Apply power source and continue trial If problem on timing again judt repeat sequence assure the perfect alignment and setting on lower dead center.

I have a bosch impact drillgsb20-2 re

The wires that go to the switches are usually attached using a spade lug that can get loose over time. Take the drill apart carefully, gently tug on the wires one at a time, and pinch the "female" part of any that seem loose to you.

Bosch VSR1199 hammer drill

Check to make sure part number 30 is not stripped out or the edge knocked off. I can't find a part number on Ereplacement for them but I am sure that Bosch would have it. It sounds like you are on the right track and the way you describe it the gear is bad and like I said I think the keys might be bad also

Bosch psb 600 drill will not reverse

The red button sits on a lever that changes the polarity of the switch output. If this lever feels loose and you can't feel it engaging anything then you need to split the housing and make sure it is seated properly. If it is, and the lever on the switch is moving fine aswell then you should check all the wires coming out of the switch, and if they are all connected properly you will prob need a new switch.
