Bit won't come out of the chuck.

I used my drill today and I went to drill a into a piece of brick and the bit went back into the drill somehow. I can open and close the chuck but the drill bit will not come out. When I push on the end of the chuck it goes into the drill, it has a lot of movement.

I tried everything to try and get the drill bit out, nothing works, I don't understand how it could get stuck in the drill when I can still open and close the teeth to the chuck. Thanks.

Open the chuck as wide as it will go. Hold it with the opening pointing down and tap the chuck with a small hammer till you can either grasp the bit with a pair of needle nose pliers or it falls out.

The bit you were using got jammed into screw that holds your chuck in place.

If you can still grsp the end of the drill bit with a bair of plyers bring the jaws of the chuck to the edge. Place a washer over the bit. Clamp a pair of vise grips on the bit and then turn the chuck out. The washer is just to protect the jaws. you might need to turn the chuck with a pair of channel locks.
