Trouble Changing Attachment

I am trying to remove the collet that the Minimite originally came with and attach the sanding drum instead....but I cannot loosen the collet to remove it. I tried pressing down on the red button and loosening the collet by hand (as the directions said), but still cannot loosen it. Can anybody help?

    I tried doing that, but when I hold the button down all the way, the collet locks up and will not turn at all. When I hold the button down half way, the collect will turn but doesn't loosen (no matter how many times I turn it). I think I may have a defective Minimite....but thanks anyway!

Looking down on the collet end of the dremel, push red button and take pliers and turn locking nut in a counter-clockwise direction.

I need a manual for Ryobi HT20VSK


The multi tool has no "chuck", it uses collets to fix the bits to the tool. Once the knurled cap is loosened or removed, the collet and bit can be removed. If the cap has been overtightened or left in the tool for an extended time, you can remove it by gripping the shank with pliers or vise grip and turn it to release the collet and bit.

I can't get the small sanding disc out of the tool.


Undo the chuck nut and then knock the spindle shaft of the sanding disc in lightly. This should release the collet's grip on the shaft. If the shaft has been pushed all the way into the chuck, remove the collets and nut and try separate the collet segments to release it from the shaft.

Can't unscrew collet


it is possible that you stripped lock mechanism on the collet, for the beginning, never, ever, use wrench to tighten the collet! just hand tied, if it slips, tight it bit more, but with hands only.

i never used wrench on the collet and never have any trouble with any of my dremels.

to close, just hold firmly in one hand pressing locket button, tighten up with other hand, to undo, reverse procedure.

if you find bit is too lose, then you have collet inserts, find that one which hold bit firmly and use it on this particular bit. standard collet is 1/8" (3.175mm), but in the set there are collets from 0.0394'' (1mm) to 0.177" (4.5mm). do not use wrench...

just inspect now if thread is not stripped, on spindle and on collar, if locket still hold, if these are damaged, you need to change damaged part. and follow the advice :-)

if you find this advice useful, pleasae do not hesitate leave your remark and vote4 for me, thanx!

Collet on Freud router won't release bit


a new collet won't hurt, but you may try sanding down the inside of your existing collet with 120 - 180 grit sandpaper. also, buff down the router bits

any condensation or moisture that may have gotten on these items can cause almost invisible oxidation that you can remove easily by sanding. DO NOT USE WD40!!!

I cannot remove the plate to pute the other plate on


Here's a copy of the manual instructions...
Detail Sanding
Your tool is equipped with a teardrop base which allows you to use it on large flat surfaces
and tight spots or corners.
The pad tips may wear unevenly, depending on use. The pads are designed to allow you to
interchange and /or rotate the diamond tip.
Fitting Sanding Sheets ( Fig. 2)
• Detach the two diamond-shaped tips from the sanding sheet.

If this doesn't provide enough information, take a look at the pictures in the manual at the following link: http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/589307-02,MS550GBMS550GH.pdf

If you still have difficulty getting the base off, write back and let me know specifically what the trouble is and I'll try to help you with it.
• Hold the tool with the sanding base facing upwards.
• Place the sanding sheet onto the sanding base.
The diamond-shaped tip can be reversed and replaced when worn.
• When the front part of the tip is worn, detach it from the sheet, reverse it and press it onto
the sanding base again.
• When the whole tip is worn, remove it from the sanding base and fit a new tip.
Tip of the Sanding Base ( Fig. 3)
When the sanding base tip is worn, it can be reversed or replaced.
• Remove the screw.
• Reverse or replace the worn part.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Finger Attachment ( Fig. 4)
The finger attachment is used for fine detail sanding.
• Remove the screw.
• Remove the diamond-shaped tip holder from the sanding base.
• Fit the finger attachment onto the sanding base.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Contour Holder Attachment (Fig. 5)
• The contour sanding pieces are for sanding curved surfaces and grooves.
• Remove the screw.
• Remove the diamond-shaped tip holder from the
sanding base.
• Fit the contour holder onto the sanding base.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Fitting and Removing a Contour Piece (Fig. 6 & 7)
• Choose the contour sanding piece profile most suitable for your application.
• Place one end of the contour sanding piece into the recess at
the front end of the profile holder.
• Push the other end of the contour sanding piece until it clicks
into place.
To remove the contour sanding piece, push it forward then pull the rear end out of
the profile holder (fig. 7).
Fitting a Sanding Sheet Onto a Contour Sanding Piece (Fig. 8)
• Align the sanding sheet with the contour sanding piece.
• Press the sanding sheet onto the contour sanding piece, making
sure that the sanding sheet follows the shape of the profile.

Trying to figure out how to change attachment for a black and decker rtx 3 speed rotary rool


The black and decker rtx uses the Flip-Lock spindle lock system for attachment changes. At the top of the tool there is a small rubber lever just above the on-off switch. Flip the lever down, and losen the grey collar surrounding the collet. Remove the collar and change the attachment. Then tighten the grey collar, and flip the lever back up. That's all there is to it!

I can't get the head to open to take out the bit


Unplug it, then while pushing in the little silver button near the head use a wrench on the hex nut and turn counter clockwise about a 1/2 turn. Push the bit in, then pull it out (that releases the little fingers that hold it).

The silver button locks the head so it won't spin while you are changing bits. Always be sure it is released before plugging in or turning on the power.
