    Thought I'd give this thread a little bump.

    Glad you did, I have some plastic autopolish stuff, can't remember the name, it's Mother's. Just what my one chuck needs after the abuse I gave it this weekend!

    Peoia's advice is great advice abt that little contact screw...its just that...to make contact!

    Also, if you want to give ur threads some extra grease, noalox works great, but by NO means nessacary. Just helps keep em smooth. Its an anti seizure for metal on metal but only needed when two like metals are used. The Chuck is brass and copper, so no worries on it ever seizing up!
    This is a journey I'll live to tell about...:smokie:

    Not my advice. Jeff posted it somewhere -- probably the Saturday thread. So, while we were collecting maintenance tips I threw that in.

    I didn't realize that about the noalox stuff. I got some, based on some tip/trick video and the guy used a chuck. I haven't checked back recently but I think he needs to be corrected.
    Regardless, it does make for a smoother screw, but then again, so do alot of products.

    My favorite hardware store and Home Depot both said "huh" when I asked for Noalox. I don't need it, but I will buy it eventually. A little couldn't hurt.

    Question: I assume it is toxic which means it can't be used on the connector threads, right?

    Trying to keep all the maintenance info together so, when a n00b asks we can point him/her to this nice, short thread and say "Read this. Your question has been asked and answered."

    (I'm not trying to get everyone to ask their questions in this thread. It's nice that it so uncluttered. I'm just dragging a copy of the answers over.)

    So, here are Jeff's comments on brand new Chucks that randomly misfire (and on his his e-mails.)

It's usually clear coat too so it's not easy to see. 90% of the time simply cleaning the connector will remedy it. I test them all before they leave, but everyone's atty is different. Once the atty gets screwed on/off a few times they usually wear off any residual powder.

    Secondly, I return ALL e-mails. If I don't respond that means I didn't get it. I have 4 "main" addresses I check throughout the day. Unfortunately 2 of them I have had for over 20 years and get spam like you have never seen. Monday mornings I will have 1800+ e-mails. The spam filter gets most, but sometimes CHUCK e-mails find their way in there. I always search for "chuck" before deleting them but that's not to say that a few have slipped by. If I don't respond... PM me here.

    I'm glad your newborn is back to CHUCKing! Take care everyone!

    I guess that I've had my Chuck for 6-8 months or so, I don't remember, maybe longer.

    Here is my maintenance program:

    Fill atty with juice, vape, repeat. I do this constantly and feel that this is what keeps my Chuck running smooth

    Do not use on connectors at all.. unless you want a short..
    it is made by ideal corp. that might help find it,
