The most popular size is 3/8 inch, which means it accommodates a 3/8-inch diameter bit. Smaller ¼-inch drills are less expensive, but more limited. Heavy duty jobs might require a ½-inch model.

SOURCE: chuckless drill stuck tight with drill bit in

if you trap the chuck in a bench vice or alike and then use the drill in reverse in short bursts until it loosens a good spray with wd40 will also aid the situation

SOURCE: how the cordless drill works in drill mode,

the basic operation for the drill working in the drill only mode is you tighten the clutch up which puts more pressure on the spring not allowing the clutch to ratchet like it would in another position therefore bypassing the clutch completely. Give me the brand and model number and I will try and find a parts explosion for you.

Need to tap a hole and no tapping chart?

If you need to tap a hole and do not have a drill tap chart and it is not absolutely critical that the threads are perfect, this is a quick way to determine what size hole to drill. Take a nut of the same size and thread pitch you want to tap. A drill bit that fits through the nut with just a bit of play will give you a close enough hole to tap. If the thread is metric an easy rule of thumb is to take the bolt size, deduct the thread pitch and another 0.1%, and that is your tapping drill size. eg. M 10 pitch is 1.5 mm, deduct this gives 8.5 mm, less another 0.1% gives 8.4mm, the closest tapping size for M 10 threads.

What is the size of the replacement chuck key for the Duracraft DP514?

The 1/2 inch is the max size drill that will fit into the chuck. There are only a few different key sizes, and sears sells them in their tool area. Easiest thing to do is find the size of the hole the chuck fits into by using the back end of a drill bit that fits the best. Measure that drill bit or take it with you to the store. You might find two different size keys with that size pilot hole, or maybe only one. Good luck!

How to use?

It is used to check either the size of a drill bit or to see what size fastener you have and decide what size bit to use. Just insert a bit or fastener into a hole. It should fit snugly and if it doesn't fit the next smaller sized hole then you now know what size you have.

Need a chuck key for model 1140b,f powermatic drill press,manual part number 6285469.

There are only a few sizes of chuck key. Easiest thing to do is first find a drill bit that fits in the hole where the key goes to determine the size of the pin on the end of the key. (Use the back end of the drill bit.) Then take any other chuck key you have and see how closely it fits or doesn't fit - just as a reference. Take the reference chuck key and the drill bit with you to Sears or any place that sells a good assortment of tools. You will probably be able to determine the correct size key from what they have available very easily. Good luck, Al K
