Hi ashl212

I would recommend a new insert for the collet nut BUT put the hammer back in the tool box. :)

It should come out easy, you may want to take some 800 grit emery paper and wrap it on a dowell rod (1/8" or 3/16" ) and go in side the sleeve with a bit of 3and1 oil, but with care. :)
Spit the dowell down the center then wrap the emery paper on it,but only do it by hand NO Power tool for this type of job.

NOTE***some collet nuts have a snap ring on them,check to see if it's still in place and not gummed up with wood pitch.
If so soak it in some cleaner then relub it after.

Bj :)
