    I am looking for a replacement keyless chuck for use with a Bosch 18V hammer drill.

    Will this work on hammer action? The same product (as far as I can tell) is described a bit differently here. I'm getting a bit lost with the different descriptors (hammer, rotary, percussion, impact, etc.)

    Thanks!

    Thanks. It seems like it might not fit. I had assumed that thread sizes would be standard, but I was in wickes today and saw this which seemed to expect a bigger spindle than that on the Bosch. So, any thoughts as to whether I would be left having to get a genuine replacement? They seem to be about 50 quid!!

    To give a bit more of the background: the chuck stops gripping and bits come loose even with light use (a couple of screws into timber) with the chuck fully tightened, new bits etc. So I thought replacing the chuck would fix the problem. Now I'm thinking it might be easier (and not much more expensive) to get a new drill, which seems a bit ridiculous.

    Have you tried removing the chuck yet to see if it is even worth trying to source a replacement? They can be an absolute nightmare to get off, so will certainly be easier to get a new drill.

    I think this is the one you have, as long as the batteries and charger are still OK, then for 27 quid...

    Funnily enough, I managed to get it off without any bother.

    Interesting suggestion about buying the drill rather than the chuck. Wouldn't have thought of that.

    The way I'd look at it, if the chuck has had it, then the gearbox, bearings, brushes, etc will all also be worn and could end up costing you even more. So just replace the whole thing.
