    I've got a couple of old non reversing ones and they don't. If you think
    of it, the chuck can't really come loose in use - it will tend to self
    tighten. Could be modern drills all now use it to standardise things.

    My Atlas Copco cordless doesn't, and it's not through engineering down to a
    price or lack of torque.

    Don't think that the mains AEG does either. however, as they're both the
    same manufacturer, it could be a manufacturer-specific thing.

    How is it locked to prevent the chuck unscrewing in reverse?

    I obviously don't really remember that well then, my first drill that
    I bought when I was at school was a cordless reversible!
    I would have checked myself but all my drills are reversible, SDS, or

    Allen or phillips screw down in the bottom of the chuck, threaded into the
    shaft. Open the chuck up full wide and you can peer down and see it.
    Obviously you have to pull that first.

    Well, that's the 'standard' we're talking about. Or are you saying it's
    not a LH thread?

    Hi William. I guess youre in America - the type of machines you have
    in America have all but disappeared here. We use front loaders, the
    clothes just dip into the water once per turn, and they use a fraction
    of the amount of water and electricity. Very different to US top
    loaders. There is no agitator. The power transmission is a belt, and
    when the drum seizes the belt burns through.

    I hope this was a joke.

    Drum bearings

    Job done, with thanks to folks here. I used 2 wooden jams, one against
    the tub ridges, and one against the floor. It then behaved nicely. The
    washing frenzy has begun!

    I think it may have been the end of a very long day!
