Thank you for Just Answer my name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. Have you had any trouble removing drill bits before?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No but I always found it difficult, it's a self locking tool where you set unlocks from the middle of tool then turn holder clockwise then it should open I've tried both clockwise and anti-clockwise with unlock selected and no joy. I have checked on Internet chat about this and other people have had similar problems where they have had success with reversing direction so I'm at a loss what to do its a new machine and not been used much, so it must be something I'm doing wrong but I can't see what??


Could you try this hold the top ring and set the middle ring to unlock then holding the top ring turn the bottom ring anticlockwise. I expect it will be tight as twist chucks often are tight to undo my drill can be a killer to undo.

When you get the drill bit out it may be worth oiling the chuck with a little wd40.

Hi Carl it took some time to undo I gave it a blast with wd40 and left it for an hour but eventually it worked many thanks.


I am pleased it is sorted now. I tend to spray a little wd40 on my chucks quite regular to make they easier to undo.
