Tell us about yourself!
Instead of clamping the threads in the drill chuck, or grinding the teeth away, go one tiny step further and grind three flats on the gripping area. They don't have to be ultra-precise; IME eyeballing them is good enough. Then the teeth of the chuck will have better surfaces to grab, with less slippage possible even when they are just-tight.
There's an even simpler way. Clamp the crack with a C-clamp until it closes. Coat the ENTIRE crack, on all sides of the wood where it breaks out, with a puddle of glue. Release the clamp, and vacuum suction will draw the glue deep into the crack. Then reclamp just tight enough to close the clamp. If you overtighten, you will squeeze out too much glue, and it won't seal as well.No power vacuum required!
Oh! Thanks. Did not realize that.

botronics, think about it. You're asking if it will remove water from the methanol in vodka - so you can mix it with camphor, ammonium chloride, potassium nitrate, and WATER.
If you're hinting at "methanol", it's not illegal. If not... you need to put down the bong, because you're not making sense.
