Question about Dremel Variable - Speed Multipro Rotary Tool 395

1 Answer

Collet base removal

My 395 has the solid base of the collet stuck inside the threaded bit. I discovered this when I bought new collets to replace the broken one. How to I remove the piece? The new collets will not seat low enough to allow the cover to grab on.

    The suggestion got me onto the right track. After the threaded screw didn't work (it just wedged the collet against the sides tighter), I used a threaded tapper (right term?) and it bit into the soft metal quickly and was able to be "tapped" out with a small hammer on the tapping handle. Thanks!

    I am new with this product and I am very anxious to use it, My problem (s) are as follows: Can't get the collet into the shaft. Also when I attach the flex tube with the smaller tool I can turn on the regular one but I can't get the small one to turn also (almost done) when using the chuck how do you tighten it up to get the chuck to hold the attachment when using just the main Dremmel.



    I have no istructions or repair manuals (my husband can't find them) maybe that would help.



    A DVD that shows how to use and change accessories would be very helpful.



    Please send me instuctions on these issues or tell me where I can get the information. I down loaded a manual but it wasn't helpfull



    Thhank you in advance for your help.

Try using a tapered wood screw or sheet metal screw as an extractor. Choose one of a size that will let its tip go down into the broken collet and get a grip when you twist it. If that fails, you might use a screw extraction tool.

How do you attach "multipurpose cutting kit model 565" to the dremel multipro model 395?


Remove the collet nut and collet then unscrew the sealing cap (black plastic ring), this has the same thread as the inner of the multi kit tool, so just screw on the tool then replace the collet and nut

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.

How do i change the bit on router?


On my older Sears router there is a lever on the base near the collet nut that you slide to engage the motor shaft to lock the motor shaft for bit changes. On newer models you may have a button or different mechanism to lock the shaft. After the shaft is locked you can use a small wrench to loosen the collet nut, usually by turning it counter-clockwise (viewed from the base). Once the nut is loose the bit should slide out (sometimes the bit is stuck in the collet and the nut may need to come all the way off to get them apart). Just replace the bit with a new bit with the same shaft diameter, tighten the nut, and you are set. If the new bit has a different shaft diameter than the old bit you may need to change the collet also (in general, different collets are used with different bit shaft diameters).

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.

How do you fit 6mm collet cone on new produce


You have, I presume, already locked the spindle and loosened the collet nut with the wrench, have you not?
Once the nut is loose, you should be able to remove it by spinning it off the threads by hand. Then insert the 6 mm collet cone into the collet,
carefully thread the collet nut back onto the collet, and tighten it with the bit in place.
Sometimes bits are a snug fit, especially into a new collet. If you have some fin sandpaper you can gently chamfer the very end of the bit where you first insert it into the collet, and this may help to insert it. If you have to, push a bit.
I have noticed that some companies tend to mill the shafts of their bits a little too close to the exact tolerance, or even oversize them slightly, and this can cause frustration when inserting their bits. In exceptional circumstances, I have resorted to polishing a couple of small bit shafts with very fine (600 grit or so) emory cloth, just to allow the bit to enter the collet. I would not recommend this with a new router collet, unless you have checked the bit with a micrometer and it is oversize. Odds are you just need to break things in a little.
The force need not be brutish, but you may need to use some force, yes.

If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Changing Bits: 1. Unplug the tool. 2. Turn the knobs on either side of the tool to loosen the base. 3. Remove the base. 4. Press the spindle guide to lock down the shaft. 5. Use a wrench to loosen the collet. 6. Remove the bit and collet. You may have to tap on the collet to loosen; careful not to tap on the cutting edges of the bit. 7. Insert the new bit and collet. 8. Use a wrench to tighten the collet into place. 9. Replace the base.

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.

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.
