Thanks for the tip ! I have had exactly the same issue when using big Forstner bits on my drill press as this thread describes. I tried cleaning it well and doing the reinstall as described above but it seemed the big Forstners (4” or so) still caused trouble. Your trick is worth a try.

When I think about this trick more, if the chuck shrinks a bit in the freezer, then gets reinstalled, isn’t it going to expand as it warms up and then not be as tight as otherwise ? Am I missing something here ??
