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!

Milwaukee Magnum Hammer Drill

If the chuck is completely jammed, you can replace it. If its locked but open, then you can remove the screw holding the chuck with an allen wrench. It's going be be tough because it will be secured with glue, such as loc-tite, and it will also be a left handed screw. So be sure to turn clockwise to unscrew it.

You can buy the part at this website, or at a milwaukee service center:

It's a little pricey, but better than buying a new drill. You should also be able to have a service center put the part on for you, if you don't feel comfortable taking it apart.

Play in the sds chuck when a drill bit is inserted

This can be due poor chuck settings and could be that it is not tightening properly. You can oil or use some degreasing spray to unlock the jam or else the chuck could be defective.

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.

My topsy turvy tomatoes have somthing wrong with them one has a hole in it about 1/4 inch around and another has 4 small holes in the bottom of it, also this may be normal but the bottom of the plant...

The "warts" are perfectly normal. The holes could be normal or it could be bugs or a worm. The bugs or the worm are often the very same green color as the leaves and are also undetectable. Check the undersizes of the leafs as that is often where they like to hide.

Never have used a keyless chuck b4- need to change bit, how do I do this? thanks

hi this should be reletively easy hold the end black bit with the sivler bit holde coming out not the black bit next to the yellow case on drill you hold the black part thats at end of drill by where the bit goes into not the black bit near the trigger hope i explain this ok.
Hold this bit tight then put drill in reverse then press trigger a couple of times it might be tight but shouldnt be that tight it wont undo.
1 put in reverse
2 hold black plastic piece near where drill bit goes into
3 press trigger few times
4 this should undo it allowing you to put a bit in
make sure its in reverse else you will just tighten it up more let me know if you need further assistance ok
