    Hello,

    I was using a 1" hole saw attachment in my corded Ryobi drill to do some small demolition work. The drill has a keyless chuck, and I can't get the hole saw attachment out of the drill. I can't get the drill to loosen up and let the bit go. It's locked in place. I've never had this happen before. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    V

    Channel lock pliers would be better. Probably only one required. Could be that the ratchets in the chuck are wearing out. I find you need to squeeze a little to get the internal ratchets to bite.
