Question about Dremel Tools & Hardware - Others

Open Question

There is only one half ok video about how to attach an attachment on a WEN flexible shaft. I did my best to follow it, I have it installed but the bit will not turn.

I need to do my birds' toenails and being poked since we are overdue because I can't find my other rotary... the one that starts with a D. Would it be easier to put the bit into the machine instead of the shaft for just this time. Thank you. Not that I know how to do that either.

SOURCE: using the flex shaft attachement.

I dont think it should get that hot. Dremel has a program for the 225 Flex Shaft and for 17.90 they will exchange it for you. Send it to DREMEL 4631 E. Sunny Dunes Rd. Palm Springs, CA 92264. Their phone number is 1-800-275-2052. Hope this helps. Dave

SOURCE: Replacing Drive Shaft for a Ryobi 725r

The lower flex shaft should cost around $40, unless you order it online and have to pay shipping. You should be able to get one from your local MTD dealer. (Ryobi is owned by MTD)

SOURCE: Homelite strin trimmer head wont rotate

The only way to access the bottom of the metal shaft is to break it. This is fused on at the factory. It sounds like your flexshaft has twisted in two. Remove the flex shaft from the engine end and see if it is in one whole piece or is damaged in someway. If it rotates at the top but doesn't rotate at the string head this is probably the problem. However, Homelite no longer offers just the flex shaft for purchase. You would probably have to purchase the shaft and the tube as a unit.
But if you are saying the spool and string is not turning at the bottom it could be that the cup which holds the string has worn and can not longer be turned by the shaft. Replace the cup that holds the string.
Another possibility is that the shaft have moved forward, away from the engine and just need to be jammed back in, and retightened (the handle grip and the boom clamp).

How do you attach flexible extension to the main unit?


usually you need to remove the front collar of the main unit, it usually just screws off. Don't lose it as you will need to replace it when you remove the flexible unit. You then insert the shaft into the collett and tighten it then thread the outside of the flexible shaft onto where you disconnected the the front collar. You do not state model so I cannot give you exact instructions

This sounds like the flexible drive shaft inside of the main shaft has a stripped ferrule. In order for you to fix this, you will have to take the main shaft off of the motor housing and pull the flexible shaft out of the inside. The replacement part number is 530056570 and should be about $12 to replace. Call the number on the unit to order replacement parts or go to your local sears.

How to replace the lower flexible shaft


Hi enriquemon,
To remove the drive shaft, loosen the clamp that is just above the protective shield and remove the set screw attaching the drive shaft tube to the trimmer housing. Remove the drive shaft and if you want clean and inspect for damage. You are installing a new one so it is not an issue. Coat the shaft with a high quality, multipurpose lithium grease. Make sure the ends of the shaft are properly located in the drive adapters when assembling. Depending on the amount of time it is used, the drive shaft should be cleaned and greased every year or two. I hope this is helpful to you. Any questions welcome. All the best and good luck.

I have a Talon electric line trimmer AT2307A. When I press the start button, the bottom attachment with the nylon line does not spin even though the motor is running.


Halfway down the shaft of the line trimmer, you can detach the line trimmer attachment ( this in so you can fit a lawn edger attachment if need be). Unclip the line trimmer at that halfway point and the start the motor and see if that rod inside the shaft is spining, if so, reattach the line trimmer attachment and see if the nylon line spins, if so, it wasnt attached correctly, if not, then there a break in the flexible rod going to the trimmer head, most likely at the bend.

How much does it cost to repair a cv axle


The best option isn't to repair it, but get a rebuilt half shaft. Otherwise you run the risk of the other CV falling apart right after the new one starts putting pressure on it's joint. Never buy a new CV all by itself and try installing it to the half shaft, thats just too much work for too little gain. Most half shafts are pretty cheap and come ready to go with 2 brand new CV joints attached and ready to install.

Takes an adapter to screw onto the nose of the Dremel. The shaft itself is gripped by the correct size collet tightened as you would any bit.

We the multi-functional mixer attachments but now unable to get shredder to attach correctly


Remove the shaft an cutter first and install the outside case of the shredder. Tighten thumb screw. You may have to lift up on a lever that runs in a groove in the shaft to remove the shaft.

Next install the shaft with cutter attached. Lube the shaft with tiny bit of mineral oil or food safe grease. Lift the lever mentioned above and rotate till the shaft seats and then drop the lever and make sure it is engaged.

Thihl HL75 hedge trimmer engine will not run at full speed


Remove the cutting attachment, insert a screwdriver in to the shaft receptor and it should operate smooth with a slight bit of friction. if not then check the blade bolts and make sure the blades move freely. Lubricate the blades and the gearbox regularly. If the attachment end is good then turn the driveshaft by hand (with attachment still off shaft). If this too moves freely then go to the clutch.
