Coupling broke The plastic coupling that couples the motor shaft to the rotating shaft broke into several pieces. Is a replacement available or should I try a piece of hose?

I have a Dremel 395 Type 3. Motor works fine, shaft doesn't turn. Took it apart to find that the white plastic or nylon flex coupling on the shaft had crumbled and the spline driver, which fits directly over the motor end of the shaft was somewhat worn. I emailed Dremel and got an overnight reply listing the 2 parts I need and the cost: Coupling is $1.00 and the driver is $1.25. Placed order by phone: 1-800-437-3635. I ordered 2 of each in case future replacement is needed. Total bill came to $7.27 including Florida tax and shipping. Can't beat that. They said it would be in the mail by tonight. (Flex coupling number is 2615294309; spline driver is 2615294308.)

I can't claim credit for this idea because I read it on FixYa from a "guest", but my nylon flex coupling (part # 2615294309) split in half latitudinally but the gears were not stripped. I used a piece of 3/8-inch heat shrink (you should be able to find it at an electronics supply store). With the halves of the coupling in place on the drive shaft, I inserted the heat shrink over them; applied heat from a heat gun; and, voila, problem solved, at least for the time being. It may be just a temporary fix, but time will tell. "Guest" said their "fix" has lasted a over a year.

After consuming a tank of oxygen at high altitude in Colorado, the attendant gave me the plastic tubes from the tank. I examined these tubes after my Craftsman tool failed and found that the coupler on those tubes made the perfect coupling for the tool. It even had grooves on the inside to match the grooves on the tool.
Hope this helps

Came upon a fix that may last a while. Surgical rubber tubing. This tubing +- 7mm stretches tight over both ends of shaft splines. Cut to the right lenght and it works. Other plastic type tube dont work. Only lasts about 10 minutes. Heat shrink lasted 20 min. Thanks for all the help.

My heat shrink tubing is failing after about a year and that coupler looks bad! It's cheap. By a new coupler. Just a recommendation.

I tried to fix mine using tubing from Lowe's and it lasted all of about 5 minutes. Way too much torque and it just smoked. Better to order the parts from Dremel; They only cost $2.25 USD plus $2.50 S/H.

Have Dremel MOD 395 motor runs and speed control works bot shaft won't turn--worth fixing ??? and how


Hi Larry, The tool that you require parts for was discontinued many years ago. Limited parts are available from Dremel. Inside the tool is a flex coupling and spline driver. The flex coupling is # 2615294309 and the price is about $ 1.25. This is the hollow plastic sleeve about 1" long with grooves on the inside, that goes between the motor shaft and the output shaft. The spline driver is # 2615294308 for about $ 1.00. Spline driver sits on the direct end of the motor shaft. The flex coupling sits over the spline driver. Spline driver is about 1/4", hard plastic with grooves on the outside. Total shipping for orders under $ 5.00 is $ 2.50. Orders over $5.00 is $ 4.00. There could be a tax charge depending on which state you live in. Here is how to order: Call Dremel Customer Service at 1-800-437-3635 , Monday-Friday from 7 am to 6 pm central time. VISA, MasterCard or Discover to place a Visa, MasterCard or Discover order. To order by mail: Dremel 4915 21st Street Racine, WI 53406 USA 1-800-437-3635 ext. 3636

I have a rotary tool single speed chuck does not


Common issue with these, the plastic flex coupling is broken-
Replacement available for $2.57 from
http://www.searspartsdirect.com
Number: 2615294309
Category: Hardware and Tools
Weight: 0.18

Disassembly on my model involved the following:
Remove the four Torx screws on the body, then unscrew the front end cap at the front of the tool to expose two more screws. Separate the two halves of the body to see the brittle and broken yellow coupling.
Replace with the new white coupling and reassemble. Buy spare couplings as they don't seem to last all that long.

My Dremel tool motor still works but shaft won't turn?


Here's the email from I got from Dremel (in my case the flex coupling broke):
Inside the tool is a flex coupling and spline driver.

The flex coupling is # 2615294309 and the price is $ 1.25.
This is the hollow plastic sleeve about 1" long with grooves on the
inside, that goes between the motor shaft and the output shaft.

The spline driver is # 2615294308 at $ 1.00.
Spline driver sits on the direct end of the motor shaft. The flex
coupling sits over the spline driver. Spline driver is about 1/4",
hard plastic with grooves on the outside.


Total shipping for orders under $ 5.00 is $ 2.50. Orders over $
5.00 is $ 4.00.


I have provided ordering instructions below.

To order by phone: 1-800-437-3635, Monday-Friday from 7 am to 6 pm
central time. VISA, MasterCard or Discover is accepted.

Stripped plastic coupler on output shaft of Dremel model 277


I'm guessing, but I think that the Sears tool uses the same flexible coupling. If you go to www.searspartsdirect.com and put in the model 572610031, you can look at the diagram and decide for yourself. I think the part costs $2.57. If it's the right one, I'd order two or three for the future.
Hope this helps.
