Chuck repair Makaita 6408 keyless

While drilling a rag got stuck between the drill and the bottom of the chuck. Before I stop the drill it sucked the chuck all the way down in the open position. The chuck now doesn't open or close. I can move the two turning parts of the chuck but it doesn't change the size adjustment. Any thoughts on what might have happened and can it be repaired before I consider buying a new chuck...It sounds like they are difficult to replace.

I need a drill that has 4 jaws in the chuck, I notice that most of them have 3 or don't tell you in the description.

I need it for a specific project that requires me to have 4 jaws to grab onto the wire that I am using.

This drill replaces one of two drills of the same model that I have used on a daily basis for at least the last ten years. I build electrical control panels and these units do both the drilling and tapping of these panels to mount various components. Their longevity is great. The second one is still in use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for "varible speed" work I needed a 3/8s drill to replace my 25+ year old B&D that finally gave up. I bought this drill, and have had it for a year working on decks & other home projects. Controlling the speed is difficult. Good for drilling holes at high speed. Difficulty getting the chuck to hold the drill bit during repetitive drilling. I would replace this drill in a minute, with one that has better Variable Speed control (like my old B&D drill).
