    Default QC Removal Tool

    Does anyone have an extra square drive tool they would be willing to sell or suggest an alternative? I was all set to order a Carvetight today to find the price had jumped from $159 to $200 TODAY! Just my luck... So if I can get my QC off I'm going to try the musclechuck ($107) seems like this would be similar to a rock chuck.

    I think so I asumed they wouldn't still sell them. Thanks!

    Where are you getting the musclechuck from? I've purchased them in the past for about $70.

    From What I see on their website I need a type 5. I can't seem to find a type 5 anywhere but straight from them. any suggestions on a good source would be appreciated. By the way is yours satisfactory?

    You can still get from them: just purchase the type 5 only, you can use any hex wrench and collet. https://www.musclechuck.com/product/...huck-assembly/ For the collet, I prefer this one from ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-C1-2-ER...:rk:1:razz:f:0

    It locks the bit in so measurements are spot on. The collets from Carvewright and other cheaper collets I've used I always get errors because it's next to impossible to keep the bit in the same exact spot within the collet and the carvewright asks for me to re-measure it.

    Oh, and it works just as well as the carvetight chuck in my opinion. that collet, I told you about though fits a little tighter in the musclechuck than in the carvetight, making it more difficult to remove. so before you install it, see if you can use a flat tip screw driver to pry the slits open just a little more.

    I have snapped 3 of the square drive bits used to remove the old QC on one truck. They were from Ron who made the rock chucks. I finally gave up on that truck. I even shoved a soldering iron up inside the QC to soften the red forever locktite. I would remove the QC before you buy the Muscle Chuck. You may destroy the truck and be stuck with a MC and need to buy the Carvetite. Remember the soldering iron trick... Too much flame heat can damage the spindle bearings. Good Luck.
    Favorite Saying.... "It's ALL About the Brass Roller"..... And "Use MASKING TAPE" for board skipping in the X or breaking bits.

    Thanks for your input AL I greatly respect it. That was just exactly what I planned to do after studying post by you and others. That way if I trash the truck I don't end up with a part that I can't use. By the way, I saw a post where you said you had bought 1 but never used it. (it was a pretty old post I think) Did you ever try it?
