I have exactly the same unit a 395. The kit comes w/ a wrench to unscrew the nut holding whatever you have locked in. If you can't find the wrench then I suggest you get an adjustable wrench and lock it into the flat side of the nut. There is a place where it will lock in so that you can tighten or loosen the nut. Some of the 395's come as a kit w/ all the different attachments, accessories, heads and tools. If it came with a plastic case the wrench is usually slotted running parallel just in front of the handle. You will see it when you open the case and take a top view look at the handle. It is sometime hard to see but it's just there. Good luck.

Why will my cordless dremel not take a charge

Make sure it is seated properly in it's cradle. Check that the dremel and cradle contacts are clean. If it is brand new, it may need a longer initial charge. Check the manual under 'troubleshooting'. Good luck!

Dremel Stylus model 1100

Change the capacitor 220uF and it will most certainly work again. I got the idea from FixYa and it solved my problem!
Easy to change just 2 soldering points and a component costing around 0,2 Euros. If you do not know how to operate a soldering tool ask someone for a quick assistance. The switch takes around 2 min (1,5 min to open the charger and 0,5 min to change the component!).

There is a small pin sticking out of the side of your tool. You must hold it in and then change the bit. yor must use a wrench if there is a place for one. Or your fingers if its made to use with your hand. Just make sure you get it hand tight before you use it.
hope i was helpfull to you

I can't get the head to open to take out the bit

Unplug it, then while pushing in the little silver button near the head use a wrench on the hex nut and turn counter clockwise about a 1/2 turn. Push the bit in, then pull it out (that releases the little fingers that hold it).

The silver button locks the head so it won't spin while you are changing bits. Always be sure it is released before plugging in or turning on the power.
