Q:

Installing a keyless chuck for 137.219000 137.219000

A:

I did not find a keyless chuck listed for that drill press. You may need to stick with the original chuck (part 0627) unless you can find an aftermarket keyless chuck that will properly fit that drill.

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the chuck on your Craftsman Drill Press. I am so sorry to hear the chuck is falling off. That can be dangerous, so I can understand why you want to get this corrected. I will be happy to help you with this. I have included the link for you to view the Owner's Manual online, in case you don't have a copy of it. The chuck installation instructions are on page 12 of the manual.

Owner's Manual for Craftsman Drill Press Model 137.219000.

CAUTION: Be sure to disconnect power to the drill press before you begin this procedure.

The chuck is held in place by a slight interference fit. That means the spindle shaft is slightly larger than the inside of the chuck so there is constant tension on the two surfaces when put together. That tension holds everything in place.

To install the chuck, first clean the tapered hole in the chuck with a clean cloth and a non-alcohol based cleaner. Remove all oil, dirt and grime from it. Also clean the surfaces of the spindle in the same manner. It is important that  both are clean as the slightest bit of dirt will keep the chuck from sitting properly. This in turn will cause the chuck and bit to wobble during operation of the drill press.

Next, open the jaws of the chuck by rotating the chuck sleeve clockwise. Make sure the jaws are completely receded into the chuck. Unlock the table suport lock and swing the table way from the bottom of the chuck. Use a rubber mallet or a block of wood with a hammer to tap the chuck onto the spindle firmly. Once it is frimly installed, it should only come off by using the rubber mallet or the wood and hammer on the upper edges of the chuck in a downward motion.

I hope this answers your questions. If I can be of further assistance please respond to this thread. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

So there is nothing to hold the chuck from spinning but the friction fit???? If I drill a hard work piece and the friction of the drill and workpiece exceeds the friction fit, The chuck will spin and fall off?

Thank you for your quick response. I understand your concern about the chuck coming off while using the drill press. I want to reassure you that the interference fit will hold the chuck in place as long as the parts are free of dirt and debris and you install it firmly with the rubber mallet or by using a hammer with a block of wood. The installation instructions I gave you are directly out of the owner's manual. This is the way the majority of chucks are installed on drill presses. Once the chuck has been installed properly, the hardness of the wood you are drilling will not matter.
I have included the information out of the owner's manual for you. Please click on the image below to enlarge it.

If you are not confident you have installed the chuck correctly, you can have a Sears technician install it for you. To arrange service please go to www.SearsHomeServices.com or call 1-800-469-4663. I hope this answers your questions, but if you still have concerns, please respond to this thread. Thank you again for using our SearsPartsDirect.com service.

A:

I believe either the screw or the "nut" that you turn to set the depth has damaged threads. You can try putting some penetrating oil on it just to make sure there isn't some rust or dirt build up preventing it from turning, but most likely you'll end up needing to take the screw apart to check the threads. If the threads are damaged you can check at a local auto shop to see if they can use a tap/die to fix the threads. If that does not work then you'll need to replace the screw.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

A:

with the nut removed the screw still only turns about 1/8 turn, should I expect it to turn out freely? If yes should I drill it out and replace it.

A:

Yes, it should turn pretty easily. I don't think it should just spin with no pressure being applied, but it should turn easily enough to where you don't need to really "work" to turn it.
