Not OT (for once) - follow up - drill chuck removal problem

Hi All,
follow up - some time ago, I asked about how to remove the key-less
chuck on battery drills. My semi-dead one I was using as a power
screwdriver finally had a toooo dead battery pack, so it was
sacrificed to the cause. Got some good advice, so used it. Biggest
Allen key that would fit in the chuck , a lot of whacks with the
hammer - came loose (yes, I had figured out the reverse screw thread
thingy down the middle)
Thanks people - advice noted, and used successfully.

BTW, my dead cordless drills get a set of cables from (equally dead) battery chargers. Clamp a 9.6-volt drill to a marginal 12V battery and you can drill for hours, in a semi-portable way

What's that Lassie? You say that Stormin Mormon fell down the old rec.crafts.metalworking mine and will die if we don't mount a rescue by Fri, 9 Apr 2010 17:11:08 -0400:
Many voltages of cordless drills have the same motor in them. 9.6v to 14.4v should be OK on 12v.

bin it. got too much useless "junque" as it is.
No. Wanted the internals more, have other good working drills so no great drama if it died, or I stuffed it up.
