So I went down to my local game store today and got the Games Workshop hobby drill so I could pin some of those troublesome metal models I have been having trouble with. However when I got it home I find myself incapable of finding a way to tighten the grip the drill has on the drill bit, resulting in the bit falling into the drill whenever I put any pressure on it at all. Any advice? Thanks!
Admittedly mine isn't a GW drill, but mine came with 2 clamps, one hidden in the handle at the opposite end to the drill bit. Each clamp has a different sized "hole" at each end for different sized drill bits. The GW one might be the same.

Like mpdscott, I do not have the GW drill. You could also try to flip the drill bit holder around. Mine has a different sized hole on the other end. One end should have to appropriate size opening for the drill bits.
i have the GW also and No! it doesnt have a double side for difefrant bits
ok assuming that you are trying to tighten it by twisting the very top not the middle or bottom it sounds like it might be fualty if this is the case GW will swap it for you they did for me when my GW hobby knife wouldnt hold its blade

Im actually having an issue with mine too. My smallest usable bit, is either to big for the smallest clamp thing or to small for the next size up. Its not a GW its a "jewlers" drill I found new on Ebay.
