I have a DeWalt drill like this

Hopelessly jammed. This guys remedy didn't fix mine. This model isn't cheap either. Totally unacceptable. I know what NOT to buy next time. I have a 1/2" cordless Makita that I've run the dog squeeze out of, and it still works fine

I have a very cheap Wilko electric drill, never had any issues with it. And that's got a keyless chuck as well.

Hope you get everything sorted.

I have a Makita that I have used for years, no problems.

Long story but I got the Dewalt free a couple years ago. It was used. I had to buy a charger. It was fine until now. I beat the hell out of it a few days ago but no luck. I propped it up and soaked the chuck in a jar of WD-40 for about a month. No luck

Disappointing

My dad's go to drill is a corded Black and Decker hammer drill from 1989, that still works no problems whatsoever.
Before that he had another Black and Decker drill from the 1970's but that wasn't a hammer drill.
