    To tighten it up, yes, it takes two hands. To mount a bit into one, one hand to hold the bit, one hand to snug up the chuck. Once snug, the bit will remain where it is, so two hands to tighten it up is what it takes. A good keyless chuck will spin down to the drill bit just as easily as a keyed chuck.

    The purpose of the collar? Wouldn't that be to hold it still while tightening and opening it? Keyless chucks are a two hand operation. That's one of the reasons why I don't use them. One hand to hold the drill, one to hold the collar, and one to tighten it. OK on a hand drill, but in a drill press or mill.....

    Try checking with a range of drill sizes and a dti. Hopefully the runout will be 0.003" tir or better.
    I have often wondered what the purpose of the collar is on these and some other makes of keyless.

    If you're interested in cleaning your chuck, here is the proceedure. It also gives you the opportunity to check the condition of the jaws.

    Just use it and marvel at how well it works.

    Bought a Used Albrecht Chuck

    Bought a 1/8-5/8 Albrecht chuck for 50 bucks. Seem to work very smoothly. What can go wrong with it and how do I check it for accuracy?
Working...
