Question about Dremel & Stylus Lithium Ion Cordless Rotary Tool

1 Answer

Tool inserts wabble

I bought a new Dremel Stylus. I took it out of the box. Charged it. and inserted one of the bits. When I turned it on (on low speed) I noticed that the tip of the tool bit was wabbling. I increased the speed and it just wabbled more. I tried it with all the inserts and every one of them wabbled. Is the machine head bent or what. I cna't imagine that all the bits are bent. Should I take it back and get a new one?

    My mistake. I took a second look at the tool --- and acutally read the instruction booklet --- and found out that I was not inserting the bits all the way into the collet. I also didn't know that there was different collets for different bits. So anyway, I'm the fool and will be reading the insturction booklet from now on.

    Sorry for your trouble

I need help attaching the new bit to the dremel model 1100

Hi leigh abear...
I will send you to the dremel website where you can watch a video on the dremel model 1100 and it will explain how to use it and change bits,cutters,ect.
Do change your bit without going to the website push down on the large button on top to lock the tool, and then you wil loosen the bit holder bu turning it anticlockwise to loosen the grip on the tool you have in the bit holder.
Please take time to rate me

My relatively new stylus runs for a short while and then turns itself off! Any small restence on the tip while in use also seems to turn it off. Please tell me what the possible cause is.

Battery is flat or has a problem, the dremel does monitor voltage/current and shutdown to prevent battery damage, failure or fire. First step is to ensure the charge is working properly.

How do I change the drill tips on the Dremel 370 6 model? Can't find the instructions. Thanks

There should be a shaft lock button near the tip end of the tool and you need a small spanner wrench (included with the tool) that inserts into the collet sleeve hole and is turned CCW (looking at the tool end) to loosen the collet itself. Tap on the tool end lightly to help loosen the bit. Hope this helps!

I bought a dremel 4000 on ebay and it didn't have a manual with it - I need basic instructions to use the drill bits I purchased that go with it. Is there an adaptor that I need to use them?

Your drill bits side, should have a twisting hand tightening head into which you insert the bits, and have fun. If this is missing, you can either buy it, at dremel stores, or get a nut of the same thread and get the job done.

How do i insert a bit? I've done it before, but so long ago I forgot and can't find the instruction booklet.

press and hold the small silver button near the front/end of the tool. This keeps the chuck/motor from moving. Use your wrench to then open the chuck and insert your desired bit. Tighten while still holding the button.

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.
