I’ve found a simple yet very effective way to give “muscle” to my drill presses chuck keys. No more sore nuckles! No more loose drill bits!
Simply drill an appropriate diameter hole in a dowel (or a broom stick as I did) and drive in the chuck key. If loose, add epoxy. On mine, I didn’t need epoxy since they were tight enough. Be carefull not to split your stick or dowel when driving in the key. You may wrap a radiator hose clip around to prevent splitting (or repare any splitting!). Note on the attached photo that I added a piece of bicycle inner tube to soften the grip.
They work great! Also available on my website on this page.
Happy New Year to all! I wish everyone health, happiness and all expected inspirations for your projects from here at LJ’s (“the” source).
