I have a black and decker KR500 and despite reading the manual I can't figure how to reverse the direction to remove screws. The manual says slide the chuck area back but that doesn't seem possible. John

SOURCE: drill chuck removal

The screw should be left hand thread and the chuck is normal thread. The 'workshop' way to remove the chuck is to remove the screw (done). If the jaws are still working then clamp a sturdy allen key in it and whack it against a workbench to unscrew the chuck. If holding the drill in the normal position you would stand with the workbench to your left and whack it down on that. If the jaws aren't working then you can grip the body in a vice and use large pipe grips or stiltsons on the chuck. Also check to see if the chuck spindle will accept a thin spanner to hold it, as this is a slightly more caring way to brace the spindle. Then you can can hold the spanner in the vice and use the allen key in the chuck and unscrew it that way.

SOURCE: bosch 18volt brute force cordless drill how do i remove chuck

Put the screw back in the chuck, tighten it up then back it out 1 turn. Take a punch, put it in the chuck and give it a quick hit with a hammer. That should do the trick.

Keyless chucks normally have a knurled ring at the base of the chuck that you hold in one hand while turning the large knurled taper with the other. If the chuck has been overtightened, and you cant open like this, try using two stilson wrenches (Pipe wrenches) one on each of these parts. Use a soft cloth in the jaws to avoid damaging the knurling. You can also try some Q20 or similar into the chuck to help lubricate it.

Inside the chuck is a left-handed screw. torx (star) T20. When you get it out, take an allen wrench and (if you can tighten it up at all, tighten the **** out of it). If not, find an allen wrench, a tiny bit smaller than the space allowed. Now, get a nice big hammer. The chuck is right handed thread. And knock it, spinning the chuck off the spindle. May take a few whacks. Use the edge of a workbench to keep it stationery if need be. Please rate me

How to remove a drive roller on a black & decker ds321 type 2

Just finished the exact thing, so here's the read deal:

- The screws on the drive roller ARE reverse thread.
- My old roller got too hot and separated from it's metal core, leaving the core tightly screwed onto the drive shaft. If you can unscrew it off of there (unscrew = clockwise!), just screw the new one back on. If not, you are going to have to take the sucker apart, but it's not too bad if you follow this, now that I did it the hard way:
-- You need to remove the belt plate assembly. It's only 4 screws: an obvious one recessed between the drive roller and the red belt-tensioner lever (see picture, white arrow), then two on the other side next to the black belt straightener knob (see 2nd picture, black arrows), right next to each other. Finally, you have to unscrew the black belt straightener knob (2nd picture, red arrow) all the way out so it will release the belt holding plate assembly, which should then slide out.
From here, you can hold the drive shaft firmly while you reverse-thread unscrew the old drive roller (or it's remaining pieces) and put on the new one. I had to cut mine off with a Dremmel tool it was on there so tight!). BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE THE COG THREADS ON THE DRIVE SHAFT; hold it with slip-lock pliers and a heavy rag or something to prevent damage.

Good luck!

How do you load staples into the Power Shot Model 5700M staple and nail gun? There is no manual in the package despite direction on the side of the gun to read it!

I have owned a Black & Decker Powershot before. Throw it away. They are **** . Stick with a Arrow or Craftsman. I didn't like the Black & Decker and gave it to a friend that was looking for a staple gun. He threw it away ! Worst excuse for a staple gun I've ever seen. Awkward to use and preforms on a scale of 1 to 10 , doesn't even hit 1 !

I'm looking for replacement blades for black&decker plane mod 21286 or part # 7696,i need set of bldes

Any Internet search will yeild sources. You may find that HSS blades are more $ than carbide ones, IMO because the carbide are old-stock and have not be repriced.

But first make sure you need replacement blades. Initially because the blades are reversable, and 2nd, either the adjusting height control is not functioning OR, and was in my case, the lower plate with 2 screws has slipped inwards. Since I believe the blades slide out after the top plate (3 screws) is removed, do NOT move the lower plates

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.
