    Default Replacing a drill chuck.

    The quick release/keyless chuck on my Milwaukee is going — bits smaller than 1/4" slip.

    Obviously I can get the replacement part from Milwaukee but is it worth upgrading to another chuck e.g. Röhm? '

    Or is there something I can adjust to make this thing work better?

    Not sure about better, but you can extend the life of a chuck that is slipping by using hex shank drill bits. No spin or slip with those.

    I honestly didn't know you could put a non-Milwaukee part on a Milwaukee. It isn't hard to switch them out though. Nothing looked fancy or proprietary. Unfortunately both the old and new Milwaukee chuck wobble on mine, so I figured it was the shaft not the chuck. If the Rohm chuck will make it run straight, that would be an improvement.

    Any luck with this? I'm not seeing any compatibility with Rohm for my Milwaukee. It is a 3/8". Seems like there might be Rohms for 1/2" Milwaukee drills only. Unfortunately.

    Actually it turns out one of my new co-workers used to be an engineer at Milwaukee so I asked her. The suggestion was to just go with Milwaukee. So that's what I'll end up doing.

    Took a lil' bit to get the chuck from Milwaukee but the replacement is relatively simple.

    One thing to note: when removing the reverse-thread bolt inside the chuck opt for a cheap, non-hardened screwdriver. They use some magic threadlock and I snapped the blade off of a brand-new Wera screwdriver (Wera was happy to warranty and sent a replacement 2-day).

    Good tip, thanks. I am going to switch mine out whenever I get organized enough to order it. I get an annoying amount movement when starting a hole. If something inside the drill is bent, putting a new chuck on it will show whether that's true.

    Oh, 1 other thing. Once the screw is removed take a 8mm hex bit and stick the short side into the chuck and tighten it down. Then rap the long side of the hex with a hammer. The chuck is on there super tight.
