Tip: Changing out worn sub-savers and drive chucks is an inexpensive and easy way to help get the maximum life out of your drill rod. If they are allowed to wear too much, then the drill rod thread will start to deform to the shape of the worn sub-saver threads. When attaching the drill rod to the sub-saver or chuck, be sure to torque it up to the correct pressure. And don’t forget the Auntie C’s thread lube!
