Damaged Keyless Chuck

Ok, I admit it... I tighten the chuck by powering the drill up and holding the grip in place by hand. 50 lashes with a wet noodle for me.

As the manual said could happen, I have damaged the chuck.

So I tried to remove the chuck as described in the manual...but.

1 of the three pieces that form the jaws (prongs that actually hold the bit) will not recess back into the chuck far enough so that I can remove the chuck screw.

Any suggestions out there??

It is a DeWalt 12V cordless.

And 50 lashes for eveyone else too. Is there another way to do it??

Have you tried tapping on the third prong to get it to retract?

Yup, tried tapping it...did not work so I hit it a little with a hammer...still did not put it back in place so tried a punch and hammer...still not go...got a little frustrated and banged the end of it on the concrete (see my post on patching concrete)...still did not retract.

If I do not have any success soon I may just take it into a DeWalt recommended repair shop.
