I have just been assembling yet another new toy http://www.axminster.co.uk/axminster-ax ... rod719351/
but what the golly gosh is this 'thing'. No mention of it anywhere in the destruction booklet, didn't seem to fit anywhere..... and if it is a tool then there is no mention of what it is for and it wasn't needed.
Has anyone got one of these drills and know what it is ?

I feel like my old Dad when he took watches to bits and had parts left over :)

It's to break the hold of the taper by which the drill chuck mandrel is held in the drill. You tap it in through a slot above the chuck spindle.

Ahh so.

I was just telling the wife I thought that might be what it is for.
