I bought the Grizzly 18v 1/2" drill, G8597. Problem is the chuck loosens
when backing out screws in reverse and drops the bit. Griz Tech sent me a
new one within 2 days, great services. Now having a problem getting the old
one off. Took the screw out in the chuck but for the life of me I can't
break the threads loose to get it off.
Keyed chucks are easily removed by tapping the key, done it many times. How
the heck do I get the keyless off? Tried everything I can think of so the
solution must be too simple for my old mind..??

put an allen wrench in chuck and hit it If that don't do it get an allen
wrench for use with a ratchet 3/8 drive and chuck it up and use an impact
wrench works every time just make sure you're turning it the right way and
Chuck up your largest Allen wrench. If 1 or 2 swats doesn't get
it, carefully position the Allen wrench between the open jaws of a
metal working vise. Let the Allen "handle" smack into the jaw of
the vise with drill in reverse.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
