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.

Dremel 4200 stopped working


No.. the issue issue is the switch inside. when your Dremel 4200 stop working, press firmly the grey area between the speed selector and the brush housing. I think this a defect in the design of the 4200. 9f840401-fb84-4f7b-8c68-75a9be3ceb9e.jpg

Clamp the bit in a vise or with vise-grips (you will probably ruin it) to hold it while you loosen the collet. You can disassemble the tool and get the lock assembly P/N 2615297356 from for less than $2.00. Search for the part number on line for a source.

How do i take the bit off of a dremel multipro model395 type 5


unscrew the collet nut, and then if it's still stuck, tap the end of the bit on the table or something solid. It'll come loose then.

My dremel stylus wont turn of and I dont know what to do It is stuck in On position


its probably broken, but you could just add a foot operated switch from a hardware store which costs about 4$, which is cheaper than replacing the switch and easier to turn off and on while using the tool.
