14.4 volt cordless drill, model 6228D. Clutch stopped working. Drill hums,
but chuck "shears" instead of drilling.
To make a long story short, I pulled the drill apart. The knob that adjusts
the clutch has a little tab that hits a stop.
A small pair of side cutting pliers works nicely to remove the stop. Now the
clutch adjustor goes farther to the tighten direction. Seems to clutch a bit
Amazing how you can break things and make them work better. Wonder how much
longer I'll get out of this drill. Can't remember how old it is, but
probably two years of good service on it.
