Question about Black & Decker GCO12SFB 12Volt NiCad 38Inch Cordless DrillDriver with Storage Bag and Stud Sensor
Inherited the drill with the house that we just moved in to. The drill should have a rotational speed of what, 650 RPM? It doesn't get anywhere near that. Further, attempts to use the drill as an electric screwdriver, or even to drill, are fruitless. The drill is unable to unscrew/screw all except the loosest screws, cannot drive a screw into a wall for anything, and cannot drill holes to save its life. Attempting to drill a hole results in the speed dropping to <60 RPM, and occasionally stalling entirely. My dad is suggesting that we replace the battery, but we have two batteries and the drill behaves as described with either one. I'm not sure as to what value replacing the battery with a brand new one could have in this instance.

Jacobs makes a couple different kinds. You say no screw inside so I would guess it is the tapered fit. It will require a couple of shims to be driven in between the chuck and head of the drill to press the chuck off. There are tools to do this but sometimes this can be done with shims. Shim each side the same and tap them in equally. If you are familiar with the pickle fork used on auto's to remove ball-joints, something like this may work as well. I hope this helps you.

if you have one check the battery and charger with a meter. if there both fine check the prong's on the battery and the power tool. if charger is'nt charging check the fuss in the charger.. good luck let me know.
