Milwaukee Fuel M18 Drill - Starting to Wobble


Recommended Posts

Hey guys not sure if this is a big deal or not but I've been noticing over the past few months that my fuel drill is starting to wobble almost like an impact driver does.  it was perfect when I first got it but seems to be getting worse. It's not just with this longer extension it's with drill bits, my hole saws,  even small or short bits too... I originally thought then a few  things were bent but they are not. Everything on the drill seems tight, is this normal for an eight month old drill that's used around the house for DIY?

 

I have attached two videos below, let me know if anyone needs to see anything else.

Each jaw in the chuck has two little carbide inserts that grip the bit so one of those probably chipped or shifted. It's not something you can fix so just go for the warranty.  This is strange because I've heard a lot about new M18 drills having wobble but never one developing it after a while.

We've had quite a few cases of m18 wobbles get posted around here, had a Bosch drill wobble pretty bad
