I would like to see a flat spot on the shank of the bit to keep the collar from slipping while drilling. this has happened 2 times even though i tighten it.

I personnaly like the new case to hold all parts

I would rather they went back chuck keys so you could tighten the bit properly.

The stop collar is slipping on the drill bit??  Try replacing it with a cup style. Should be able to get one at ACE for about 50 cents... ACE will probably charge a dollar for it though.

Gary - the ratcheting type keyless chucks hold pretty well.. problem is they aren't available on the cheaper drills; B&D, Ryobi, Skil.... The deWalts and Makitas have them though.

it is not the drill chuck that slips it is the depth guage collar. also i am not familar with a cup style (is that a collar

Cup point refers to the set screw that locks the collar. There are several different configurations of screws. Some hold better than otghers.

ACE hardware will carry most.. that link is just info.

You no it is possible that you could take it to a grinder and hold the shaft sideways too stone and get a flat spot on shank so set screw could ride on that.Just a thought from a grandpa

Grinding a small flat, approx 1/8'', along the drill shank is very effective.

Grinding a small flat on drill bits is most effective, to prevent slippage---

especially effective with today's drills that have those keyless-chucks and smooth jaws. 

If one doesn't have a grinder, a small ''flat'' can be added to a drill bit shank, using a ''mill file''.

When using a grinder, use care, DO NOT overheat the drill shank.

If it gets to hot to touch, frequently quench the shank in water,

That is what i have decided to do to mine

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
