HI Levon

Why do you think you need to replace it ?

But yes they do make the keyless for the drill press but they are not cheap,you can get the high end China type or the Jacobs ...


Here's just one link for some

The Chinese keyless chucks do not run true, good enough for wood but not for metal. Jacobs are as good as they get Levon.

well, the reason i think i need to replace it is when using the 3 inch holesaw this morning, i tightened the arbor and several times on different holesaws, i would hear a ping, and then the arbor would be loose. once while tighteneing it seemed tight then and putting pressure aka hammer on the key it tightened another 5 or 6 rounds..

what do you think?

HI levon

Most drill presses don't come with the chuck installed and must be put in by the user,,it sounds like it's not set in right.., 2 x 4 and brass hammer,clean the harbor out and with a good hit set it in place....
But if it's the ring gear in the chuck have them replace it free of charge..,the ring is very light in most and they can snap and you will get the " ping " sound if they are cracked..

my reply seems to have disappeared.

the chuck has worked good for several years and is just now showing problems of not locking down tight. ??

Hi levon

Pop the chuck open,,and take a peek in side...

It's like a walnut shell,,,just tap it and the out side barrel with snap off.

clear as mud I know ...it's a little bit tricky but easy or just get a new one,,The last one I got ,it came from FL..5/8" keyless Jacobs ...if I recall 65.oo bucks...

I wouldn't put a keyless on a DP. It's hard enough trying to get a hand drill tight with those. Stay with a key chuck.

Levon,
I did a Google search for "drill press chuck replacement" and came up with a lot of interesting hits. Here is just one you might want to take a look at...
