worn out drill bits or chuck?
 
i have this keyless chuck drill

http://www.milwaukeetool.com/tools/d...k-cord/0302-20

it is awesome and powerful but, as of late, it loses grip on bits and they stay in lumber when i try to pull them out. i drill real slow and gently and all but still.

my question is whether the problem is with the chuck itself or maybe worn out bit shafts. or both?

thanks

It's the chuck.

so, replace the chuck?

Jacobs makes a great racheting chuck, not cheap but would work as goo or better.

Yep..replace the chuck. Has the drill been dropped on the chuck, is it rusty or difficult to turn? You could try removing it and soaking it in a solvent, but if it's worn it won't do anything except clean it.:whistling2:

Nothing more you can do at this point except replace it. But you could write an email or call Milwaukee and tell them how pissed you are. I had a drill with the exact same issue.:cry::cry:

Have you tried lubing the inside of the chuck? Try a shot of WD-40 or similar on the gears before you condemn it.
But, chucks do go bad.

have not yet but certainly could. WD-40 or machine oil?

I'd start out with WD-40. That'd clean out any old sawdust and lube.
