Question about Dewalt 18v Battery Hammer Drill Dcd950 Dc925

1 Answer

I was using my drill to drill a hole using a hole saw in framing. The drill worked fine drilling the hiole but when it was time to take the hole saw out. It was jambed in there or something happened. I used channel locks to twist the chuck loose to get the hole saw out. But now since I did that my chuck does not hold a screw tip I can not reverse a screw out the chuck will just come loose and the screw bit holder will fall out. I have stopped using this drill since it was too frustrating and I woild like to fix it. I bought it as a tool only for $99 so if fixing it is more than that I will just buy another one

Check the screw in the center of the chuck it could have come loose causing it not to lock properly.

    Upon checking this drill out and looking at online posts, there is no screw in the chuck to remove it.

    Same drill (DCD950 Hammer Drill) same problem. After owning less than a year, chuck jaws loose grip. Can not put a hole saw in reverse without jaws opening up. Can not put stress on a bit holder to back out a screw without bit holder spinning.

    I read elsewhere of someone having the same problem with hex screw holder, he could no longer back out screws without the bit holder falling out, after having the drill for a few months.

    Long time Dewalt buyer, never had any issues before. There is no screw in the chuck to tighten, this just looks like a design flaw. The chuck is all machined steel, looks real substantial and was one of the selling points for me. If I learn anything helpful, I'll come back and re-post.

    Same problem. No screw inside chuck. Makes this drill, and all this chuck removal advice, fairly useless.

How do you drill through ceramic tile

Go to Lowes, Home Depot, Menards or reasonably good Hardware store. buy a ceramic bit. They are usually with the wood, steel and concrete bits. Small bits arent to pricy. If you need a larger hole like the on the shower pipe goes through, you will need a ceramic hole saw. Hole saws are coated with diamond chips and will probably cost $40 or more. good Luck

when drilling cement floors to add new mounts for equipment theres two ways to do it , Impact = useing a impact drill to chip cement out of hole Or core boring , this uses a hollow round drill to slowly saw the cement out of hole this tends to make a less ragggy hole in cement so hole is smoother and has less fractures in it (takes longer to do than first method )

Replace shower door


You did not mention any additional information about your problem except replacing shower door.However use basic hand tools to complete the job.

Try this following general steps :-
1. Remove the doors by lifting up on one door at a time and then pulling each out. The top of the door has rollers attached to it, and the rollers rest on the inside of the top rail of the frame. Set the doors aside.
2. With your drill, remove the two screws on each end of the top rail, located on the inside of the shower frame. Then lift off the top rail of the shower frame.
3. Use your box knife to cut the caulk on the side and bottom rails of the shower frame. Shower frames are caulked on the outside where they meet with the walls and floor of the shower.
4. Use your drill to remove the screws from the side rails. There will be two screws on each rail, securing it to the shower stall. Then, take the rails out. Remove the screws from the bottom rail and take it out.
5. Use your tape measure to measure the old side rails, top rail and bottom rail. With a pencil, mark the lengths on each new rail. Use your hacksaw to cut each rail. Hold a side rail in the exact location where the old rail was located. With your pencil, mark the screw holes on the shower wall. The new shower frame screw holes may not line up with the old shower frame screw holes. Use your drill and 3/16-inch drill bit to drill new holes if necessary. If the shower walls are ceramic, use the concrete drill bit. If the shower walls are fiberglass, use the multipurpose 3/16-inch drill bit.
6. Insert the 3/16-inch anchors into the holes that you drilled. Put the side rail into position and insert the screws into the holes. Use your drill and Phillips head drill bit to tighten the screws. Place the bottom rail into position and mark the holes. Drill new holes if necessary and install the anchors. Insert only one screw at the end where you installed the first side rail. Lift up the loose end of the bottom rail and slide the second side rail into place. Mark the holes. Remove the side rail and drill the new holes using the 3/16-inch drill bit. Insert the anchors and put the side rail back into place. Insert the screws and tighten with your drill using the Phillips head drill bit.
7. Set the top rail directly onto the side rails. In each end of the top rail, insert the two self-drilling screws until the top is secured to the sides. Insert the tube of clear caulk into the caulking gun. Cut the end off of the tube with your box knife. Caulk the side rails and the bottom rail to the shower walls on the outside of the shower. Re-hang the shower doors by lifting each door and placing the rollers on the inside of the top rail.

Just received a thermocast sink (kitchen) but it was shipped with one hole andI need four. can I drill holes or should I ship this back?

Yes, you can drill them with most any hole saw...just make sure to only use the pilot bit when drilling the pilot hole and then place the hole saw on after the pilot hole is drilled...
Do not apply much pressure to the bit... only enough to give a bit of a cut from the bit as you are drilling the hole.

I have a composit kitchen with knock outs for 4 faucets. How do I knock them out?

Do NOT try to knock them out! The correct way is to drill them out as needed for your particular faucet. Refer to your installation instructions for your faucet to determine which holes need to be drilled out. There is a school of thought that it is best to drill them all and use a hole cover on those you don't use since once the sink is installed you will no longer be able to drill them at exactly factory locations.

You will need a 1-3/8" hole saw (my preference is Lenox brand # 30022), an arbor (a special drill bit for the hole saw Lenox brand # 2L), and preferably a varible speed drill.

Turn your sink upside down and place onto a clean padded surface to protect the finish and is also a padding that you can bear to throw away. Locate the center of the hole to be drilled. If there is no dimple from the manufacturer at dead center, you will have to give it your best guess. Mark that spot and with the arbor securely mounted into the hole saw, begin drilling at 1/4 to 1/2 speed of the drill, until the tip of the arbor had drilled completely through. Remove the hole saw and turn the sink right side up. The hole that the arbor made in now called a pilot hole and will guide your hole saw perfectly. By drilling from the top side you eliminate any chipping. Insert arbor into the pilot hole and begin drilling using light to moderate pressure until the hole saw has drilled through. Be careful! As you sense you are nearly through the drilling, only use light pressure so you don't lose control of the drill when the saw pops through and accidentally smack your sink.

Can you drill a hole for a soap dispenser in a thermacast sink

Yes you can...
Use a good sharp hole saw like you would use for wood or metal...
It is best to drill the pilot hole with just the 1/4" pilot bit before you put the hole saw on and drill the big hole. Use patience and gentle pressure and you'll be through in a minute...

Using Ryobi Hole Saws

Hello. Somewhere in your set you will find what is called an arbor. The arbor has a drill bit in it and the hole saws get screwed on to the arbor.

Cant find the fan relay for 2002 jeep cherokee

It lives under the right headlamp assembly. You can remove the front fascia and headlamp bracket to gain access, or you can just remove the right headlamp and use a hole saw to drill a hole in the bracket assembly. It is made of a hard plastic material and the relay is bolted to the fender area underneath.

Drilling a composit sink for a 4 hole faucet

If is real granite you will need diamond tipped coring bits, if it is a composite then quality hole saws and/or drills will work. Slow and cold is the rule here, do not force the tool and you should be fine.
