Question about Craftsman Single Speed Rotary Tool

Open Question

My variable speed craftsman rotary tool has a five postion switch. The model number on the case is 572.610530 which is the number for a single speed tool. I need to order the correct switch but the switches in the Sears parts direct do not tell me wich one is the variable speed one. Can anyone help me find a source for the correct switch?

Disassembly on my model involved the following:
Remove the four Torx screws on the body, then unscrew the front end cap at the front of the tool to expose two more screws. Separate the two halves of the body to see the brittle and broken yellow coupling.
Replace with the new white coupling and reassemble. Buy spare couplings as they don't seem to last all that long.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. First off you did not mention the age of this tool which would have been quite helpful in my response.

I looked up your parts here:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Rotary-tool-Parts/Model-572610530/0247/0741520/10043672/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=572610530

You should inspect the brushes (item 11) for wear or broken springs. From what I can tell this particular model has been in the retail market place for at least 10 years. This would lead me to believe that the brushes are suspect. The brushes can be removed by unscrewing the opposing "screwdriver slotted" plastic caps on the outside of the tool and then carefully lift them out for inspection.
Use a flashlight and inspect the armature where the brushes come into contact. It should be shiny copper colored and not dark or black.

I also note that the switch has 5 speeds. Since it does not work on any speed... I doubt the switch has failed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

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.

The variable speed switch on my demel is burnt out, will a layer of solder on top of it fix it?


I wouldn't recommend using solder in an attempt to recoat the electrical traces of the variable speed switch, rather, I'd get a replacement switch for it and do the repair correctly.

Trying to jerry-rig the switch like that could cause a more serious issue, like burning up the drive motor, etc.

Here's a place that has replacement parts (and a nice exploded drawing of the tool too) that should help you out. If the part isn't currently available from them, you can search elsewhere for another supplier.

http://www.ereplacementparts.com/dremel-400-xpr-variable-speed-rotary-tool-parts-c-15440_15456_15610.html

The switch part number is 2610920711.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
