Question about Dremel Variable - Speed Multipro Rotary Tool 395

1 Answer

Collet base removal

My 395 has the solid base of the collet stuck inside the threaded bit. I discovered this when I bought new collets to replace the broken one. How to I remove the piece? The new collets will not seat low enough to allow the cover to grab on.

    The suggestion got me onto the right track. After the threaded screw didn't work (it just wedged the collet against the sides tighter), I used a threaded tapper (right term?) and it bit into the soft metal quickly and was able to be "tapped" out with a small hammer on the tapping handle. Thanks!

    I am new with this product and I am very anxious to use it, My problem (s) are as follows: Can't get the collet into the shaft. Also when I attach the flex tube with the smaller tool I can turn on the regular one but I can't get the small one to turn also (almost done) when using the chuck how do you tighten it up to get the chuck to hold the attachment when using just the main Dremmel.



    I have no istructions or repair manuals (my husband can't find them) maybe that would help.



    A DVD that shows how to use and change accessories would be very helpful.



    Please send me instuctions on these issues or tell me where I can get the information. I down loaded a manual but it wasn't helpfull



    Thhank you in advance for your help.

Try using a tapered wood screw or sheet metal screw as an extractor. Choose one of a size that will let its tip go down into the broken collet and get a grip when you twist it. If that fails, you might use a screw extraction tool.

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

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!

How do i take the bit off of a dremel multipro model395 type 5


unscrew the collet nut, and then if it's still stuck, tap the end of the bit on the table or something solid. It'll come loose then.

My Dremel lock nut won't budge. My collet is stuck! How can I loosen the bit?


You'll need to use either the built in shaft lock to hold the collet in a fixed position, or use a pair of slip joint pliers to hold the shaft of the bit, while you use the wrench to loosen the collet. Slow and steady should get it loose. Another option is use some penetrating oil sprayed lightly onto the back of the collet to help loosen it from the shaft etc.

Dremel 395 in the middle of drilling sea glass and the collet and bit stop turning while the motor is still running fine! GRRRRR Thanks for any suggestions!


sounds like the rubber connector between the motor and collet.i use rubber tubing and hot glue to keep it working. bad news is you have to disassemble it to install a new connector.

My collet nut is stuck and I cannot remove it. Is there a trick to removing a stuck collet nut?


remove all the star head screws, unscrew the top plastic collet holding the plastic outer casing on. take a pair of vise grip locking pliers open the plastic casing just enough to expose the inner shaft inside the casing lock the vice grips onto the metal shaft between the bearing casing and the collet that is stuck enough to hold but not to dent it up. now that the vice grips are locked onto the main shaft get an adjustable wrench and size it to the collet screw size and turn it should come off rather easily or at least mine did just did it as i wrote this then screw the casing back together and happy dremeling hope this helps

Changing a bit on my dremel


Depends on the head you have on the tool. If it takes collets, you need to match the collet size to the shaft on the bit. There are I believe 4 different collet sizes.

You have the threaded shaft which is hollow and connected to the tool. then you put the proper sized collet inside that shaft and half of it will stick out. This is what actually holds the bit. Next, you put the 'nut' on the shaft, but don't tighten it yet. Put the bit into the hole in the nut as far as it willl go, then back it out about 1/8 inch. Now you can tighten the nut by holding down the button on the front of the tool until the nut does't turn any more. You can buy a 'nut' that works with any bit, no collets used, for about $10. Home depot, Lowes etc or online.

If you're not sure what I'm talking about, you can probably find pics of collets etc. by going to google images.
It would probably pay to contact Dremel or look online for the manual also.

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.
