Why use KC1601 Drill Key Chuck 3-16mm?
KC1601 Drill Key Chuck
Keyed chucks are designed to use a key to loosen or tighten the grip on a tool. When slippage is an issue during heavy-duty operations, keyed chucks have the benefit of delivering additional torque to the bit. They can rotate in either a clockwise or a counterclockwise direction.
- Chuck capacity:
Keyed chucks offer the advantage of applying additional torque on the bit when slippage is a concern during heavy-duty applications. Keyless chucks are engineered to quickly loosen and tighten a tool on the chuck collar of the drill, either by manual operation or when torque is applied.
A drill chuck is a stainless steel device that attaches to the head of a drill to hold the bit or other tools for drilling and screwing. They are designed to tighten or loosen to allow quick release for multi tool application or can be adjusted by using the keys.
The best thing to do is measure the diameter of the pilot hole/shank and match that diameter with the drill chuck size you have. For example, if your pilot is 11/32″ and your drill chuck is 1/2″, you would need a CK-TKR.
