Question about Dremel Variable - Speed Multipro Rotary Tool 395
I got the one off, but when I went to put another in, it wont stay in. I know Im doing something wrong, but I dont have the instruction manual. Can you Help ?
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.
