Dremel rotary tool variable speed, low speed speeds up after short use. Will brush replacement solve this issue?

How stable is your line voltage? The SCR phase control used for speed control is more sensitive to line voltage changes at low speeds than at high speeds. Brushes should be changed when they are worn down to about 1/2 of their original length. Much more than this and they don't have enough tension to properly contact the commutator ring. Check with power off when the tool is cold and slowly turn the chuck by hand to feel the resistance. Run it a while and let the bearings warm up. Turn off power and turn by hand again. If it feels looser when warm (which would cause it to speed up at slow speeds), the tool might need to be disassembled and bearings oiled. I use Dexron automatic transmission fluid to lube most motors. Wipe down any excess.

Dremel multi max stops when pressure is applyed

I took mine apart due to the same reason. Seems like the yoke that fits over the drive bearing is worn or bent to oversize so that it doesn't make a complete rotation. Hence, a very small or no cutting swath. You can replace the drive head for about 22 bucks plus shipping, (dremel parts) or go to Home Depot and get another one for 70 bucks plus tax. Or do as I did and go to harbor freight and get a Chicago Electric multi tool for about 30 bucks. It works fine. I'm not a professional and don't need a 200 dollar one.

How to replace 1991 honda civic front wheel bearing

Using worn parts to replace worn parts is never a good idea, unless you just love working on your car just to tell people you are working on your car! Presses are fairly inexpensive!! And bearings are not that hard to press in and out. I have several cars that I do all the mechanical work myself, so for me a press is waranted and nessasary. Once the first side you do is done the second side takes 1/3 as long to do!

Is it necessary to replace all 4 tires at the same time? Only 2 were worn to an unsafe condition.

You do not have to replace all 4 timres at the same time. It is most advantageous to put the NEW tires on the front of the vehicle and have an alignment done at the same time. Tire wear is always cause by steering and suspension components. Have them inspect your front end before the alignment is done. They will check bearings, bushings and rod ends for wear. Don't be cheap if you see that the components are worn. (They will show you!) Worn suspension parts can cause a new set of tires to go bad in a few weeks if the wear is extensive.

Should I be lubricating my dremel (395) tool?

Just a comment-Based on experience, I would go with BOTH their suggestions and order brushes and bearings. That squeal is definitely the bearing; it is a sleeve bearing; RPMs too high for a ball bearing to last and the sleeve bearing has a solid lubricant cast into it.

Winding noise and vibration when driving on front right tire

you could have more than one problem the vibration accelrating maybe an inner cv joint ,if you just had the tires replace and an aligment done they should have checked the front end for worn out ball joint and tierods but the wheel bearing may not have any movment but can still make noise

Worn front bearing on Dremel Multipro

You can put new grease into that bearing without removing it by following the steps in this M.S. Paint drawing I made. After a bit of protest, mine started running a lot better.
