American chucks have standard sizes of chuck keys. There is one available. I would recommend McMaster-Carr ( and search for “chuck key” to find the right page.

Try to get as much information off of your drill press chuck as you can – make, model number, capacity of chuck (1/2 ” most likely) and TELEPHONE McMaster-Carr using their 800 no. Someone on the other end can most likely match you up with the right one. If all else fails, ask if you can purchase the most likely best fits and then return the ones that won’t fit. They might charge you a small re-stocking charge for the return keys but you will finally be able to use your drill press.
