I just looked at an owners manual at Dremel.com (64 pages) and under tightening the collet they state to finger tighten and then use wrench making sure to not overtighten. All you really need to do is snug the wrench up enough to hold the accessory. after tightening or loosening release the lock button and I always turn mine by hand making sure not to hit switch or remove battery (suggested for removal/installation) to ensure the release isn't catching. You can look at the manual and other information by going to their site. They also have a toll free number to talk with a tech for help. If I have helped you would you please rate this response accordingly. Thank you

My dremel stylus nut wont hold the dremel collet even after following the correct procedure to change collet what can I do?


Perhaps the best thing to do is get a second dermal tool with the appropriate size nut. I saw where Harbor Freight had kits for as low as ten dollars.

The collet stocks and I don't know what to do? Any advice will be good, thanks


Hi, W/D here.

The collets are a friction fit, and tend to bind after being left in one position for a time.
Try this: Tap the bit, if there is one in the chuck, towards the motor. This sometimes creates the slack needed to remove the bit. Put a little light oil on the collet before you replace the bit.
If no bit is in the collet, try a light oil, and tap directly on the collet with the chuck collar off. Also, tapping from different angles after adding the oil will help to dislodge the collet.
One other method is to set and hold the shaft lock after oiling, and try to rotate the collet slightly while exerting an outward (pulling) force with pliers or channel locks. Be careful with this method, as too much force can result in damage to the collet.
Best regards, --W/D--

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!

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!

User Error! There are different diameter collets. I bet you are using a larger diameter bore collet than the bit outside diameter. Collet can be purchased at any hardware store. To remove unscrew nut, remove collet and replace with proper diameter.

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.
