Flexshaft 225 T2

How does one attach bits, etc. to the shaft? When I try it just spins and nothing locks in.

TIA

The Dremel has a safety feature, it must be in the 'hanging up" position, or the shaft will not spin when using the 225 attachment.

Do you have a 'nut' on the end, or just a wide open shaft (1/3 inch or so?)
You need a collet nut to tighten bits, and maybe collets of varying sizes also (not sure about this particular shaft).

    Forgot to mention, you need to hold the button in the front of the tool down to lock the shaft, that's probably your problem.

You can change to any bit, but have to change the compression collar inside the end of the shaft. For example if the tool shaft size is 1/8" you need to use the 1/8" collar etc. Make sure you use the corresponding bit with the corresponding compression shaft size or the bit will not lock in position when you tighten the collar.

Why does Flexshaft get hot after a couple seconds


Perhaps you are bending the shaft too much, or the original lube in the flex shaft has been compromised. Take it back to the dealer, for an exchange.

My Dremel lock nut won't budge. My collet is stuck! How can I loosen the bit?


You'll need to use either the built in shaft lock to hold the collet in a fixed position, or use a pair of slip joint pliers to hold the shaft of the bit, while you use the wrench to loosen the collet. Slow and steady should get it loose. Another option is use some penetrating oil sprayed lightly onto the back of the collet to help loosen it from the shaft etc.

I borrowed a black and decker rotary tool (RT 550). I can't seem to get the bit off or be able to change bits. There is no tool to use to open the bit and everywhere on-line it says ''quick swap of bit...


slide the orange on/off switch all the way back then push in the black button the switch slides over. This will lock the shaft-then use small wrench provided w/ tool to turn the collet nut

Dremel shaft lock spinning


Trying to fix a similar issue. The pin that gets pushed in by the button (and returned by the spring) seems to be fine. The hole in the rotating shaft that the pin fits into, however, is in the wrong place, so the pin never goes into the hole! All I need to do is somehow pull the whole front part of the shaft out about 1/16th of an inch, and it'd be fine. I just can't seem to budge it though. Any tricks, anyone?
