Default Unfreezing a Jacobs Chuck

I ran across this today on how to dissassemble a jacobs chuck to clean or unfreeze it.
I often wondered how they were put together.

Thanks, Herb. I've always wondered how they work. I've junked a couple in my time that could have been fixed this way. Jim

It seems I never finish what I

Have to give you an "A" for being tenacious. I would have give up and bought another chuck.

It definitely was an interesting learning experience but I would also have just pitched it and bought a new one. If the chuck looked like that I wonder what the rest of the drill looked like?

A little rust don't hurt if it will function properly. It may look rough on the outside, but it is still good inside.
A good example is Stick.

Another reason it might be good to reuse,is that those chucks are not cheap, and to get one that the base fits the tool might be a chore too. They have many different bases on them.
