  • OT Makita cordless drill'screw driver chuck problem

    CORRECTION, It's a dewalt................
    I have a 4" fillips bit that I can't get out of the chuck.
    I can loosen the chuck all the way and look in it, there seams to be a round ring holding it in the chuck.
    It is't a keyed chuck.
    How to disassemble the chuck?
    Am I screwed?

    You mean this sort of chuck?


    Happened to me also once or twice when there was too much crud in the "chuck".

    Give it good blast of WD-40 and couple of good jerks on the locking sleeve.
    Pulling the bitk and the locking sleeve simultaneously and running it on forward/reverse on short bursts might also help. (clamp the bit in a vise unless you have 3 hands)

      No picture is there. It's one that you hold when tightening or loosening.
      No crud in there. When I loosen all the way the Phillips bit is loose in the chuck but there is a circular metal ring around the bit holding it from coming out.
      I'm guessing if there is a way to disassemble the chuck that is what i'm needing now.

        When it doesn't work, use a bigger hammer
        Call 616 241-3448 Monday ask for service, give them the model & explain the problem.

          I don't know how to get the chuck off. All the references I see show a reverse threaded screw that you have to access through the front of the chuck. If you have the model number you can often google it to find a manual, and that might give you a clue.

          Just out of curiosity, are you saying that you have a 4 inch long Phillips bit that has a hex shaft with an indent towards the blunt end, and that some mechanism inside the chuck is hung up on the indent?

          At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

            Lets try again:
            this sort of "hex chuck"?

            or something completely different?

              Think FF is talking about a keyless chuck, if so, and the bit is long enough try to get a short length of tubing that is a close fit to the bit, need to be able to push bit and tube in, then hold tube while pulling bit.

                Never seen such a keyless drill chuck unless this is some prankster version?

                Ordinary 3-jaw keyless drill chucks are mounted with left-hand screw trough the chuck. But its not possible to get to that screw if there is toolbit magically stuck in the chuck.

                  If it is a traditional chuck. Look at the bottom of it. If you have a screw it is probably left handed and has threadlocker on it. Get the screw out. Tighten the chuck on the short end of a large allen wrench. Then hit with a BFH. Take off the old chuck before you buy a new replacement to make sure of the needed thread size.

                    Standard chuck on an impact driver. Question is.. does the OP have traditional key less 3 jaw chuck or one of these? I'm betting the former.

                      Sorry, what I meant that I have never seen keyless 3-jaw with mystery ring that would grab and hold the 1/4" hex shank.
