    Anyone ever remove a Milwaukee drill chuck? I bought a Milwaukee 1/2" magnum hole shooter cheap off of ebay and would like to remove the chuck. Rather than the usual Phillips screw, this one is locked in place with a socket screw (1/4" hex). I assume this lock screw is left-hand thread but the danged thing does not want to come loose. I could sacrifice the chuck if I have to but seems like a waste.

    That would be a left-hand socket head screw, right? That screw does not want to come loose.

    If PB Blaster/Liquid Wrench/pick you particular flavor doesn't work try putting a soldering iron in the hex screw till its HOT preferably after you have put the drill in the freezer overnight. Put a socket head that fits on a ratchet, then turn left, turn right and go with the one that makes it come out. If that fails go get an impact screw driver (the kind you hit with a hammer) and repeat the beginning and try again.

    Cheers,

    Doc
