What does "10mm Chuck" mean?

10mm (3/8 inch) diameter 13mm (half an inch) Simply said, the greater the chuck size, the larger the shank diameter that it will accommodate. In general, if you wish to drill holes larger than 20mm in diameter or into materials such as metal, you should get a drill driver with a 13mm chuck to handle larger bits. Drilling smaller holes is done with a 10mm bit.

The term "chuck" comes from the fact that these are usually made of stainless steel and have a hollow center, like a chuck on a gun. The term "drill master" is also used for this function, but the term "master chucker" is more commonly applied to people who work on large groups of drills or drill masters.

There are different types of chucks: open, half-open, and closed. In an open chuck, the body of the tool accepts any diameter shaft, while in a closed chuck, only shafts of the same diameter as the chuck can be mounted. A half-open chuck is kind of half way between open and closed; it will accept a shaft of any diameter but cannot be tightened or loosened around it. Half-open and closed chucks are generally used for short-term applications where mounting and removing a single shaft is sufficient. Open chucks are recommended for long-term use because they allow using a range of sizes for one tool.

What does "chuck capacity" mean?

A chuck's capacity, or size, refers to the largest drill bit it can hold. So, a brace with a chuck capacity of 13 mm (1/2 inch) can hold a drill bit with a maximum shank size of 13 mm (1/2 inch). Braces with larger capacities can hold bigger bits.

What is the chuck on a drill used for?

A chuck is a sort of clamp that is used to hold an item with radial symmetry, particularly a cylinder. A chuck holds the revolving tool in a drill or mill; in a lathe, it holds the rotating workpiece. Jaws are widely used in chucks to grip the tool or workpiece. They can be made of metal or plastic.

Drills and mills use different types of chucks. In drills, a chuck is used for holding the drill bit while it is being rotated by the drill motor. The chuck has a body inside which slides one part called a core. When the core is slid into the body, it locks into place, preventing the bit from coming out. There are two main types of chucks used with hand drills: open-end and closed-end. With open-end chucks, the bit can be removed and replaced when it gets dull. With closed-end chucks, the bit cannot be removed once they are installed on the drill.

Clamps called vices operate on similar principles to chucks but are designed to hold non-rotating items such as bolts, screws, or nails. Vices are usually attached to a bench top or frame and provide a way to hold workpieces still while they are being treated at a fixed location such as grinding or drilling new holes. Bench vises are divided into three main groups: ball, wedge, and spring-loaded.
