CXS Drill Chuck BF-FX 8
« on: October 10, 2018, 06:20 PM »
Hello Everyone,

This is my first post, I've been using this site for a resource but haven't had a question until now.

I was having issued with the drill chuck on my CXS drill--it would not attach to the drill.  My other CENTROTEC devices still worked-the 90 degree attachment and the standard CENTROCEC  chuck.  I did finally find a small burr on the drive shaft even though the other attachments still went past it. 

The problem is I decided that the reason it the BF-FX 8 would not mount was it was dirty.  I removed the snap ring and it went soaring across the shop and I can't find it anywhere.  I called Festool and they said that they can't get me one because it is sold as part of the drill.  As it turns out there was a small burr on the drive shaft so after some emery paper it slide onto the drill(I had it apart at this point)

I measured the shaft and it is a little over 17mm.  Has anyone sourced a snap ring for this chuck?  I could sure use a hand or it sounds like I have to purchase a new chuck:(

Any engineers supply shop should have or be able to get a replacement one.

As you haven't put any location information in your profile I've no idea if any link is relevant.

This is an example (not a suggestion of where to get one)

Of course there is amazon
