Assuming it exists... Anybody know what the name might be, of a
quickchange adapter to replace a regular chuck? I would like to
remove a DeWalt 18 V drill (DCD760) chuck and replace it with a
I am talking about a replacement chuck that is a quickchange
chuck, a quickchange chuck that screws onto the arbor/shaft of an
ordinary drill in place of the ordinary chuck. I am not talking
about a quickchange chuck that fits into an ordinary chuck. I am
talking about a quickchange chuck that "replaces a regular chuck",
one that would "replace the regular chuck with a quickchange
The English word "replace" means "take the place of" or "put in
So you were confused by that one word, while your dismissive reply
misinterpreted every other word in my post.
Why not learn to read? And then take your personal problems to an
Apparently you know of no such device. And apparently there is no
such device, or it is very difficult to find. And that is why I
asked here instead of "googling" (or whatever you want to call it).
Real answers is what UseNet is for. If you are a moron, you might
be better off being a lurker. If you just don't know, fine, but do
not pretend that you do.
For what it is worth, I knew what he meant. OP used the words 'remove'
and 'replace' in his first post, both referencing the factory chuck. He
didn't word it real well, but the clues were there.
IMO, no. Qickchucks don't hold as well as cranking with a key.
You just don't change a bit/tool enough to justify that weakness.
If you're using multiple bits for a repetitive job, like pilot holing,
than driving screws, it's much easier to use multiple drills anyway.
So you're not saving much time with a quickchuck.
What, maybe 5-10 seconds a change?
It is unlikely that DeWalt or other manufacturers use generic drill
chuck mounts. Therefore, DeWalt should be your source for what you
want. They have a web site for parts that you can peruse. Probably
their impact driver chuck can be used on the drill. Ask them.
Just out of curiosity, is there a particular reason why a quickchange
"adapter" won't do what you want? They're relatively cheap, easy to
find that then your drill is still usable with normal drill bits in a
few seconds. I have one I paid less than 10 bucks for and only adds
about an inch to the length of the drill. Of course, as others
suggested, it doesn't get much use because most things you might want
it for work better with two drills and everything chucked up nice and
