I took the keyless chucks off of some old battery drills that the replacement batteries were unavailable or as expensive as a new drill. I put the chucks on a few corded drills and haven't had a problem but I did keep the old chucks just in case. I still have keyed chucks on two (heavier) corded drills and my little drill press.

I think some people have an issue with some keyless chucks because they don't work the same as older ones. My newer Bosch cordless has a chuck that instead of just spinning it in your hand to tighten, it requires an extra twist without the motor running... it kinda clicks and then it's tight. Takes some getting used to but works.

All that being said, I'd still recommend a keyed chuck on a hammer drill, drill press or any drill that you often use large bits.

I "mounted" the key on my Crapsman corded drill with black tape. For the DP, I tied a heavy cord to the key and hang it on a magnetic hook from HF that sits in the side of the DP.

I replaced the chuck on my drill press several years ago with a new keyed chuck. I use one of the those magnetic pencil/cord keepers from Rockwell to keep the key handy on the drill press. The key is easily used with the magnetic holder attached.

I attached mine with a small chain about 30 years ago and it's still working just fine. It's always handy and all I have to do is reach for the chain hanging from the motor mount. Nothing to wear out, always attached, always convenient, never in the way - works for me!

I epoxied a rare earth magnet to the side of my press to hold the key on. After quite a few years the epoxy let go. Then I found out that the magnet either sticks to the chuck key or the side of the drill press when I use the key. It makes no difference which way. If it sticks to the key I can put it back anywhere on the DP. If it sticks to the press then I have to stick the key back to the magnet.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I have a ryobi 18v 2 speed with a keyless chuck and since my stroke a few years ago I have not been able to really tighten it so I am going to get a key chuck for it.

I'm guessing it's a 11-280 drill press?

If so I believe those used a Jacobs 33 taper chuck!
Just in-case you didn't know about this fact, They also have a really easy way to remove spindle/chuck assembly.
