I have a craftsman rotary tool model no. 572.248950C. The collet wrench can't loosen the collet nut,. When the lock is engaged, the whole thing just slips when the wrench is applied. What do I do now?

I am working on getting a website for this company, but you can try Alltradetools.com and see if they have anything, they distribute them.

SOURCE: Can't find replacement collets/locknut for PowerSmith rotary tool

Hello Bob, I recently saw your post about the Power Smith PS2103. I have this same tool, and have never been able to use it because the collets don't fit the bits.
I was looking at it recently - I have the owner's manual - and although there is no web address, there IS a toll free help line. Here is the number - 888-552-8665
I called the number - got their voice mail, left a message, but they have NOT returned my call!
The only outlet that MAY carry this brand is Zellers, but I haven't been there yet.

Good Luck!

Is it possible to grip each part with a pliers and twist and pull at the same time to release the bit? Let some oil run into the collet before you do this.

Trying to change drill bit on Craftsman Rotary Variable speed drill


Lock the spindle (small chrome button near the tool's nose or lever at the power switch). You'll probably need to rotate the spindle by hand as much as one full turn as you do this, to get the lock to drop into place.

With the spindle locked, use your supplied wrench to turn the collet nut counter-clockwise (as seen from the cutter end) about one full turn. The collet should now be plenty loose enough to release the cutter / wheel / drill.

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.

I bought a cordless rotary tool Model No 572.610780 and I cann't get the collet nut to loosen so that I can put an accessory on it.


Did you engage the chuck lock? This is usually a button that you press gently as you turn the chuck and the pin on the bottom of the button drops down to lock the chuck. Then you hold the body and turn the check anti-clockwise when viewed from the jaws.

Best to read the instructions before you start playing. :>)

I have a Dewalt dw600 and the drill bit broke off, just the main cutting bit, and I cannot remove the bit- I try to unlock but it won't come off.


DW660 is suppose to be a tool free bit insertion and removal. However a wrench may be necessary. If you have loosened the the collet nut either with the collet grip or a wrench and the bit does not come out. Remove the collet nut completely from the tool. Remove the the collet with the bit in it. With a couple of plyers, one use to hold the broken bit the other to twist the collet. Sometimes when the bit is overtighten the collet locks on to the bit so to speak and the collet wont expand back out thus releasing the bit by doing the above it will expand back out and release the bit. Reinstall the collet and collet nut.

I hope this helps, thanks for using FIXYA. Good luck and have a great weekend. Jeff

How to use the collet wrench


There should be a spindle lock near the collet end of the tool. Engage it and then put the wrench on the collet nut and loosen the nut. If the bit is stuck just tap the end of it slightly to loosen it and it should come out. Reverse this process to install a new bit...hope this helps you...Jeepfxr

How do i change the bit on router?


On my older Sears router there is a lever on the base near the collet nut that you slide to engage the motor shaft to lock the motor shaft for bit changes. On newer models you may have a button or different mechanism to lock the shaft. After the shaft is locked you can use a small wrench to loosen the collet nut, usually by turning it counter-clockwise (viewed from the base). Once the nut is loose the bit should slide out (sometimes the bit is stuck in the collet and the nut may need to come all the way off to get them apart). Just replace the bit with a new bit with the same shaft diameter, tighten the nut, and you are set. If the new bit has a different shaft diameter than the old bit you may need to change the collet also (in general, different collets are used with different bit shaft diameters).

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.

How to change tool


There is a button on the side of the tool near the tip. (Make sue the tool is unplugged or the battery is out) Hold that button in while take the little wrench provided to loosen the collet. You'll see the nut just behind the collar which holds in your accessory.Turn counter clockwise. You may have to turn 1/2 to 3/4 turn for the button to engage the spindle lock.
