English term or phrase: chucks
Is it possible that chucks means "Bohrmaschinenfutter" in German? The term "Futter" just sounds odd. Then again, I have no idea what exactly "Bohrmaschinenfutter" is.

Bohrmaschinenfutter
Explanation:
You are right, it means "Bohrmaschinenfutter", but normally, the simple form "Bohrfutter" is used.
Das Bohrfutter dient zum Festspannen von Einsatzwerkzeugen in Bohrmaschinen. For an explanation of this and other technical terms in German look at the link below, if you go to "Metabo weltweit", you will find a technical glossary for every country.
I hope I could help you
