Dremel rotary tool removing shaft of attachment

I cant remove the attachment. I'm not talking about the little screw at the end , i need to remove the whole shaft to insert an attachment I bought that is connected to one. I can press down that little button, but the shaft wont slide out and I cant budge the nut.

They can be stubborn. I would take padded pliers to the nut, and not focus on removing the shaft until the nut is loosened. Be careful not to damage the nut. You may also try spraying a light lubricate at the base of the nut and hold the dremel upside down so that some could possible get behind the nut.

I have a Dremel 395. This typically happens when using the cutoff wheels.
First: loosen the Collette nut with the wrench.
Second: Lightly tap the mandrel mounting screw that holds the cutoff wheel to the mandrel.
Three: when the mandrel loosens up, you can remove it.

Note, if you tap on the Mandrel to hard, the cutoff wheel will break.

How do you attach "multipurpose cutting kit model 565" to the dremel multipro model 395?


Remove the collet nut and collet then unscrew the sealing cap (black plastic ring), this has the same thread as the inner of the multi kit tool, so just screw on the tool then replace the collet and nut

I have a Dremel Single Speed Model 275 that belonged to my Dad. It suddenly won't turn on the end even though the motor is running at full speed. When I take my fingers and twist the end, it starts to turn...


The Dremel 275 (and other series) have a plastic coupler and spline that connect the motor shaft to the collet shaft (where the tools attach). The plastic fatigues and disintegrates, causing the collet shaft to stop, even if the motor is still running. The fix is about $5.00 --- two parts from Dremel. The 275 case is a **** shell that opens with the removal of six T-10 Torx screws.

Flexshaft 225 T2


Do you have a 'nut' on the end, or just a wide open shaft (1/3 inch or so?)
You need a collet nut to tighten bits, and maybe collets of varying sizes also (not sure about this particular shaft).
