In our haste to build a giant dinosaur we forgot to put out podcast #38. So join us as we run down of the top five tools — from a few weeks ago — track down some answers for a caller who wants to know why pneumatic nailers feature different nail angles, and shoot the bull with our friend Mr. Jalopy who tells us about a Japanese tool magazine that visited his shop. Remember, if you’ve got a question or comment you can call us at 866-718-9403. (Podcast Download)

    isn’t set up right for #38 and #39. My pod catcher won’t recognize it.

    It’ll be a cold day in hell before I use iTunes….

    Should be fine now, or at least fine as soon as everything caches out. Remember that if you’re in a hurry and there’s ever an issue you can always grab ’em directly from the posts — it’s the same difference.

  3. The chuck should be a standard threading. There’s a screw inside the chuck. Open the the chuck all the way and you will see a screw head. I think the threading is reversed – remove the screw. Grab a large Allen wrench and tighten the short end into the chuck. Then you want to tap the allen wrench really hard with a hammer. The chuck is normal threading (not reverse), so you want the spin the chuck clockwise if you are pointing the drill away from you (like a pistol). The chuck should come off and you will be able to replace it with a new chuck. Lowe’s and Home Depot both sell a keyless chuck replacement.

    Also check the Toolmonger Flickr Pool i recently uploaded some photos of a Ryobi drill with a replacement Jacob’s chuck that I installed.
