Open the chuck all the way and remove the screw inside.Then tighten an allen key with the long end in the chuck.Whack the allen key with a hammer and the chuck will spin right off.

I have a dead drill, the trigger is messed and I cant get it out. It has a nice rubber chuck though, Id like to swap it for the crappy plastic chuck my current cordless has. Anyone know how to do this? Thx!!

BTW, chucks are not all interchangeable. Depends on the type of chuck and manufactor. THere are many types of fitting. morse taper #1. M2, different threaded types. so don't be disappointed if it doesn't fit.

Great, thanks. I also just got this one, I couldnt resist, but its got a metal jacket. Should I use this in a shop GFI only? its not like I will use it around water. Can I hook up a shop GFI like a power strip or something to the regular 120 in the garage? This thing looks 1946 ish, before they put the red on.

When that drill was made (plastics didn't start appearing in abundance-and then on cheaper tools-til the mid-70's), they didn't have GFI's. GFI's didn't start becoming a required feature for bathrooms til - yes- the mid-70's. We used what I still use: a standard 3 prong outlet. However a power strip is a great idea. I have a plug-in Porter Cable that's about 15 years old and still plug it directly into an outlet, and that has a magnesium body (of course I use the cordless more, now). That Milwaulkee would be great in a heavy duty drill stand to be used as a drill press-but get a GOOD quality stand!. Good Luck! :D
