The chuck on my hf drill press crapped out on me, it was a real struggle to use the key to open and close it, it said on the chuck itself Jt 33, so i went to grizzly and ordered this one http://www.grizzly.com/products/item.cfm?itemnumber=G8225


the funny thing abou it is, i never had a problem with it falling off.....:rolleyes:

I recently went out and got a wicked cool Jacobs 14N Ball Bearing chuck. Dang sweet she is. Grips it like some of the chicks I used to date when I was in school :)

I will never buy another chinkinese piece of crap tool again.

i looked and found the cheapest jacobs ball bearing chuck was $260, i'll see how this one works for me.

if it craps up, i'll just get a new drill press

Mine is HF, about 10 years old max. It started the same thing a while back. Locking up when I went to open it up or tighten it either one. Next time would go like it should. Felt like something was loose or chipped inside!?!? I soaked it in light oil. It's doing better. That's all I can say is--------better.

Mine only drops out when you are the absolute busiest and in the worst mood. Otherwise it does great.
