I shoulda known better but I let my brother borrow my Stanley 131a Yankee Screwdriver. Yep, he tried to pry something with it and broke the chuck. So, it looks like you have to replace the whole spindle and he actually researched this and ordered a new one for me.

If you remove the little set screw and slide the sleeve back you still can't get the spindle out. The lock collar just turns a little bit each way. So who has figured this out? Bob? Anyone?
