You did not state which model you had but normally on Hilti drills with a removable chuck you just put the nose of the chuck in the palm of your hand. Take your fingers and pull back the sleeve. Slide it back on the guide tube and then turn it until it catches. If that does not work then something is wrong with your chuck.

Tooth fell out of chuck

I believe you are in line for a different chuck.
I had this happen, and began a 3 year quest for a chuck.
Know that most chucks simply screw on the the shaft that sticks out of the drill.
They are tightly screwed on, but are removable, usually.
I recommend you try tool sales & repair places, and sooner or later, you should find a different chuck.
I does not need to be off a machine like yours, as they are sort of universal.
God bless your efforts.

Fleetwood 50 drill press chuck connects to the spindle how?

The chuck on 99% of the drill presses is just a press fit. The end of the spindle where the chuck goes on is slightly tapered to hold it on. Make sure the end of the spindle and inside surface of the chuck are very clean. With the motor off, raise the table high enough so you can still get the chuck on the spindle then turn the handle to lower the chuck against the table and press it firmly against the table to wedge the spindle in the chuck. There shouldn't be any need for anything more than this.

The rod holding the chuck fell out. I can put it back in part of the way and it will still drill as long as it is not pointed down but I don't know how to get it to stay locked in place.

You don't need that screw that fell out if you can't get it back in the chuck is threaded on and you probably will never have a problem with it again. Good Luck...

I have a 9 in drill press and the chuck fell off while doing some hard drilling . it looks like a press fit and i wanted to be sure before i tried anything

Some drill-to-chuck fittings are known as morris tapers, and are incredibly strong. Look in the end of your motor shaft for a screw hole. The chuck probably has a screw or bolt holding it in place once the tapers align.

Best regards, --W/D--

Chuck came off Dayton 4yg14 Drillpress

Sounds like a Morse taper chuck. Might use a spot of glue to keep together.

Chuck jaws on Makita 8444D fell out

There is suppose to be a flat head Left hand thread chuck screw in there. It may have fallen out. You will not be able to put the jaws back into the chuck. You will have to replace the chuck with a new one. If you make sure that the chuck screw is not there you can remove the chuck with a couple of steps. Make sure the drill is in it's lowest gear. Use a strap wrench or some large vise grips on the chuck. If there is still one jaw in the chuck make sure it is all the way open and locking the collar to the chuck. The chuck will come off in the regular lefty loosey configuration. It may be stubborn. If this is the case, You may have to cut the collar off the chuck and use a pipe wrench. Or bring it to a professional to get it changed out.

I'm not familiar with that brand, but it sounds like your chuck just fell apart.
It can be reassembled, but a better and more long lasting fix would be to get a replacement chuck and swap them out. This will save you what could turn into hours of frustration, attempting to repair the old chuck only to find it still doesn't spin freely or tighten correctly.
Note the numbers on the side of the chuck itself, as well as the tool make and model #. There's no need to replace it with the same brand, but what is essential is that you find the correct chuck mount for your drill. (This is usually a number code like 2JT, 3JT, etc.) If this is not marked on the chuck, you'll have to know the diameter and thread pitch of the shaft the chuck screws onto.
Other than that, you merely need to decide the capacity (size drill bit allowed) of the chuck you wish to put on your drill.

Do a web search about drill chucks and you can find many suppliers that will be happy to sell you a new one, and you'll soon be drilling with the best of them...
Hope you find this helpful! If so, please take the time to rate this post.
