Well I got the Darn thing off. I had a runout problem on a Ryobi DP100. Took
the chuck of using a lawnmower blade:) and the Chuck is marked RJ33-18L
I cant find any RJ33 chucks on the net? I see JT33 all over the place
though. Are they the same?
Typical tapers on machines are:
JT - Jacobs Taper (named after the drill chuck maker but
adapted/adopted by just about everyone)
MT - Morse Taper (longer tapers used on drill presses and
Brown and Sharp (again after the company/used on milling
L-00 or L00 (a taper with a key seat milled in)
R-8 (short self-releasing taper used on milling machines)
Do the Ryobi folks just mighta wanted to loft themselves up
to the higher heights and have their own taper? This could
be it's a scheme to be proprietary? A combination of Ryobi
and Jacobs? Could the 18 be a "threads per inch/TPI"
designation? Quite the puzzler, eh?
I do have to ask, what/is the problem with buying a new one
