But the Loctite should indeed help keep the load off the securing screw, and I would prefer to be able to use the drill in reverse. My main use is in furling a big genoa (every time we tack it) and it is a high speed/low load application which begs for using "high" gear on either the primary or secondary winches... ie, reverse on the drill!

Other than the breakage of the bolt I am pleased with the way the drill handles the jobs I've tasked it with.

Cheers,

Jim,

I don't recall the number but I'm pretty sure it was the medium strength. Now that we are back in the "Land of Easy" I have been abusing the Milwaukee a bit more than I would otherwise and have not been able to get the chuck to slip.

Just forget about it for now and have a good birthday.
