SOURCE: keyless chuck will not tighten down enough to hold bit

What size bit are you using if it is real small it may be below the min sixe require for that chuck .If it is say 1/8 or larger it may be time for a new chuck .They are easy to replace open the chuck as far as you can there is a screw inside them most of them are left hand threads just back it out and tap the chuck loose with a hammer .Make sure you know the threads of your chuck when you buy the new one most are 1/2-20 but some can be 3/8-24 tpi

SOURCE: Black and Decker corded drill won't tighten around a bit.

the chuck sounds like it is bad or maybe stuck from rust, what you can try and do is spray some WD-40 on the jaws and then try and holding the collar with a glove and run the drill SLOWLY in forward/reverse and see if it loosens up if not you will need a new one.

The chuck on my new makita drill is stuck with a drill bit in it. It won't open back up.


This is caused by tightening the chuck using the drills power, if you clamp the bit in a vice and using a pair of multi grips on the chuck in an anti clockwise direction gently bounce the grips and after a few tries it will undo, don't use too much pressure or try to unwind it in one move or myou will damage the chuck sleeve

How to change bits


The drill uses a cordless chuck (part bits go into) you will need to hold the outside ring of the chuck and spin it to loosen the jaws on the bit. Then spin the chuck the opposite way to tighten

Jaws won't tighten or loosen to hold a bit


Hmmm some times the counterclockwise screw that attaches the chuck to the drill come forward and that is how then it stucks the 3 parts that fix a drill to a chuck. Check if this screw come forward. If yes then destroy it and replace it... We destroy it by using a drill smaller than it (usually it is 5mm so we use 4mm bit and of course a CARBIDE one because even cobalt ones can not drill a hardened bolt)

I have the drill, I have the bits...there is something missing to connect both. What does it look like?


Although you posted your question under Chainsaws instead of another tool forum, look at the end of the drill. Is there a hole surrounded by a cone shaped metal end? This is the chock, if you spin/turn it counterclockwise, the opening should widen to accommodate the drill bits, then spin/turn it clockwise to tighten/clamp down on the drill bit. Some drills accomplish this with an l-shaped key that has a small cone-shaped gear on the end that fits into holes on the chock. Some drills have a chockless drill, and you simply hold the end of the drill and squeeze the trigger to use power to tighten/loosen the bit.

How do I take a bit out?


It is a keyless chuck. Put the drill in reverse (chuck should spin to the left when viewed from the back) and hold the main body area of the chuck with your hand while slowly running the drill. The chuck will open (unless it is broke) and release the bit. You do the opposite (slowing running the drill in forward) for tightening a bit in the chuck.

How do I attach the drill bit?


You have a keyless chuck that holds the bits, just hang on to it with one hand and spin the motor with the switch, let it tighten up on the bit and hang on tight, it should grab it. To get it off, just reverse the drill motor and hang on to the chuck again, and it will come out. Check it out.

I have the same drill and love it !! This series of Craftsman Drills are the first of the keyless chuck. To tighten or loosen the bit, simply pull back on the black ring tightly and hold it and simultaneously pull trigger to run drill foreward (to tighten bit). Reverse (to loosen bit). The chuck will make a loud clicking sound!! This is normal !

Was using with a spsde bi and hit a nail. Now


You may have inadvertently hit the hammer/drill switch and it is floating the middle between functions. This selector switch has a symbol showing a drill bit on one side and a symbol of the hammer on the other. Engage the switch bacK into the drill position

Having problems securing masonary Bit on 3/8 Black&Decker Drill 7


If it's an inexpensive bit, odds are it's spinning in the chuck. If the chuck key can't tighten the jaws well enough, you'll need to borrow or buy a different drill (or you could replace the chuck).

If you bought an SDS bit (one with slots milled in the shank), you're best off buying a bit made for a standard drill. It's not impossible to get a SDS bit to chuck into a standard drill, but it's difficult and they often slip loose during drilling, messing up the hole.


Take care!
