Drill chuck replacement

For any of you plagued by modern power tools, I have a reminder for you.  Even if you have to get a drill to finish a project right now and your only option is a speed chuck there is still hope.  Just because you had to buy a new tool doesn’t mean you need to be stuck with crap forever, upgrade it! By using a hammer, a large allen key, and some stiff impacts (don’t burn up the motor trying to do this with the drill) you can remove that new crappy chuck and put on a nice old Jacobs chuck with a key.  Gone are the days of skinning your palms when you try to get a drill bit in and out.  Or the instances when you just can’t get enough torque to keep that hole saw from spinning.  With your newly installed chuck and key you have the needed mechanical advantage that makes a drill worth using.  Ever wonder why not even the cheap companies use a keyed chuck on their larger models? That’s right, you can’t get the needed torque.
