PDC metal 1/2" chuck
« on: March 18, 2017, 12:21 AM »
Hey guys,

      Does anyone know if the metal 1/2" chuck for the PDC fits a T18? The description on Amazon says "unique" to the PDC but only says that it's slimmer than the standard Jacob's chuck. I don't see how it wouldn't fit a T18.

Can anyone confirm?

I haven't actually put the metal chuck on the drills, but I cannot see any reason why it wouldn't.

You mean KC 13-1/2-MMFP chuck?
As long as it's FastFix it fits, although I have the Protool version.

. I haven't bought one since I like the plastic outer body of the regular chuck on my Winter Hammered hands over the feel of that knurled metal body... [cool]

It is meant for percussion drills. If you don't have one then the standard chuck is all you need.

Hi,

I'd like to add that both KC 13-1/2-K-FFP (standard chuck) and KC 13-1/2-MMFP are rated for percussion drilling and both chucks can be locked (tension).

Kind regards,
Oliver

I've had to send three of the standard plastic ones in for replacement after they started slipping. Each time the techs called me and said they had no way of knowing what went wrong because there was no way to open the things up without destroying them, which didn't sound very encouraging.

I have no idea if they're built any differently apart from the metal ring, but so far this one's been holding up just fine.

. What is your normal usage with your drill(s)? Also, is it the same drill that eats the chucks?

Very, very light furniture building tasks. I have an SDS-Max rotary hammer if I ever need to do anything heavy duty. I just go to tighten the thing down one day and out of nowhere it clicks and clicks and clicks without ever going anywhere. Sometimes I can spin it back the other way and fix it for a few uses, but it's fairly ridiculous that I should have to do that at all. One of them started oozing grease when it got into this state, but the other two did not.

. Wow, new failure to me. My T15+3 drill( okayT15... [wink]) is getting long in the tooth now and I haven't had any problems with its chuck.
My PDC has the Standard Chuck but is much newer, haven't put anywhere as much use through it yet..... [scratch chin] [scratch chin]
