I have a HF Mini-Mill #44991 that needs to have the drill chuck removed from the spindle in order to install a taper shank cutter. After removing the spindle cover, I inserted the Fixing Pin into the spindle sleeve and loosened the Spindle draw bar. The instructions say that all I have to do is gently tap the taper shank (hidden by the drill chuck?) and let the drill chuck fall out. As you would guess, the drill chuck is stubborn and no matter where I hit the drill chuck it remains fixed in the spindle. I am using a hard rubber mallet. This machine is new and was shipped with the drill chuck already installed on the spindle.
Is there a book or a video showing how to remove the drill chuck from the spindle?
