You have to hold down the little metal button near the nut and just tighten away with the wrench. that button locks the rotor and keeps it from rotating. if that doesn't work, i would suggest a part is broken.

How do I change to the smaller chuck size?


In your kit, you will find some collets to hold the smaller bits. Unscrew the cap, insert the collet and replace the cap. Inset the smaller bit and tighten the cap. The collets have slots cut into them so they can tighten down on the bit.

Dremel 300 Series - I can't get a collet to go in the shaft. looks like something the same size is in the shaft but is not proturding to pull it out. Unable to wedge it out.


There is a collet stuck in there. It was probably in there without any tool in place, then the collet nut was tightened. With no tool filling the hole in the collet, it collapsed and became small enough to be pushed too far in. Fortunately these collets are soft steel. Find a sheet metal screw that you can screw into the hole. That will allow you to pull the collet out. Discard that collet. These collets come in at least two sized to accommodate different sizes of tool shafts. Unfortunately the spare one you have is one of those sizes, and the one you extracted is probably the other. But they don't cost much and you can buy them where you buy dremel tools. Good luck, Al K

I have a Dremel 300 and the shaft lock assembly isn't working to hold the shaft so I can get the collet nut loose. When I try to get the collet nut loose while holding the button of the shaft lock the...


The "nub" on the shaft lock assembly (internal) has worn down and the assembly needs to be replaced.

If you feel competent to open your Dremel yourself (and it's not on warranty) then order the shaft lock assembly from Dremel (early 2011 price: $1.25, not sure how much postage & handling might be). After opening the tool you will find a metal ring and a small piece (the lock) which it holds in place around the shaft where the lock button is located. Remove the old pieces and replace with the new ones and reassemble the tool.

Otherwise you can send the tool to Dremel to be fixed.

I have a Dremel Single Speed Model 275 that belonged to my Dad. It suddenly won't turn on the end even though the motor is running at full speed. When I take my fingers and twist the end, it starts to turn...


The Dremel 275 (and other series) have a plastic coupler and spline that connect the motor shaft to the collet shaft (where the tools attach). The plastic fatigues and disintegrates, causing the collet shaft to stop, even if the motor is still running. The fix is about $5.00 --- two parts from Dremel. The 275 case is a **** shell that opens with the removal of six T-10 Torx screws.

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.
