A "chuck" is the think you turn and tighten on drills to hold the actual
drill bit or screwdriver bit. A drill press is basically a drill held in a
stand or built as part of it which allows one to drill perfectly straight
(at 90 degrees) into whatever it is you are drilling. They usually have a
lever or wheel to turn which lowers the drill.
Hope this helps.
