    To remove the chuck on your drill follow the instructions for the type of drill chuck you have: Instructions for removing a keyed chuck Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck. 1.) If the unit has this screw place the chuck key, with the chuck facing toward you, into one of the holes on the right side of the chuck. Strike the key in a clockwise direction with a wooden mallet or similar object. This will loosen the screw inside the chuck. 2.) Open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw. 3.) With the chuck facing toward you place the key into one of the holes on the left side of the chuck. Using a wooden mallet or similar object, strike the key sharply in a counter-clockwise direction. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand. There is no way to stop the motor from turning. It may require several attempts to loosen the chuck Instructions for removing a keyless chuck Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck. 1.) If the unit has this screw open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw. 2.) Insert the short end of a 1/4" or larger hex Allen wrench into the chuck and tighten. Facing the tool strike the long end of the hex wrench sharply counter clockwise as it is a standard right hand thread. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand. There is no way to stop the motor from turning. It may require several attempts to loosen the chuck Instructions for removing a torqued chuck 1.) Tighten the chuck around the shorter end of a hex key (not supplied) of 1/4" (6.4mm) or greater size. 2.) Using a soft hammer, strike key sharply in a counterclockwise direction (when viewed from the front of the tool). This will loosen the chuck so that it can be unscrewed by hand. If for any reason you cannot remove your chuck we suggest getting your drill to your nearest Factory service center for further assistance.

SOURCE: Keyless chuck grip is stripped inside and the

second question first. No you cant just buy the grip, you have to buy a replacement chuck, shop around for best price, second you have to get the jaws opened up to remove, couple different ways, but first go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number for a parts explosion. Next if the grip is damaged can you put a pair of pliers on it and turn the collar to loosen it? the jaws have to be retracted to remove the chuck screw (LH threads), what you need to do now is put the drill in the drill only position and the tool in low range. Find a bent handle allen wrench and lock in the jaws, put the chuck on a bench or block of wood and wrench at about a 30 degree angle to strike it counter clockwise, you might have to hit a couple time but this will work. Let me know if I can help further.

Milwaukee1/2 magnum hammer drill keyless chuck stuck closed


yes call 1-800-sawdust that's the Milwaukee factory number. They can tell you what the spindle and thread sizes are so you can order a keyed chuck. They should even be able to tell you what chuck they have that will fit it.

How can I replace the keyless chuck on my Dewalt DWD215G?


Open the chuck wide open. In the center is a retaining screw, they usually have left hand threads. Remove the screw. Take an allen wrench1/4" to 3/8" in size and fasten the short side tightly in the chuck. The chucks are usually right hand thread, so take a small hammer and strike the allen wrench to turn the chuck to the left to loosen it. Once you have the chuck off, verify the thread size of the drill motor shaft, then go to McMaster-Carr and choose the one you need.

I can not change the drill bit. Do I need another tool?


that depends on whether or not you have a keyed or keyless chuck. if you have a keyless chuck then you do not need another tool you must turn the chuck counter clockwise to loosen the chuck and replace the bit. if you have a keyed chuck then you will see three holes around the chuck of the drill ie the part that holds the bit. just below the holes you will see teeth spaced evenly around the drill. a chuck key allows you to put the end of the key in one of the holes and using the teeth you turn the chuck key thereby loosening the chuck and allowing you to change the bit. if you have a keyed chuck just take it to your local hardware store and they can provide you with the correct key and show you how to remove the bit. if your chuck is keyless the hold the chuck put the drill in reverse and pull the trigger use a glove to protect your hand
