Removing cutter

Is this a guillotine style cutter or a rotary style cutter? What brand/model? Some rotary cutters are self sharpening and some cannot be sharpened.

Trying to change drill bit on Craftsman Rotary Variable speed drill

Lock the spindle (small chrome button near the tool's nose or lever at the power switch). You'll probably need to rotate the spindle by hand as much as one full turn as you do this, to get the lock to drop into place.

With the spindle locked, use your supplied wrench to turn the collet nut counter-clockwise (as seen from the cutter end) about one full turn. The collet should now be plenty loose enough to release the cutter / wheel / drill.

Tsp100 not cutting receipt

the Auto-cutter on that model is only a 'partial' cut, (Guillotine-style.)
Since it is an Auto-cutter, if it is not cutting AT ALL, that is not something that a "user" can adjust-for.

See section 7-3 Releasing a Locked Cutter (pg 26) in your manual here:

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. First off you did not mention the age of this tool which would have been quite helpful in my response.

I looked up your parts here:

You should inspect the brushes (item 11) for wear or broken springs. From what I can tell this particular model has been in the retail market place for at least 10 years. This would lead me to believe that the brushes are suspect. The brushes can be removed by unscrewing the opposing "screwdriver slotted" plastic caps on the outside of the tool and then carefully lift them out for inspection.
Use a flashlight and inspect the armature where the brushes come into contact. It should be shiny copper colored and not dark or black.

I also note that the switch has 5 speeds. Since it does not work on any speed... I doubt the switch has failed.

If you have more questions after inspecting the brushes, feel free to respond anytime with those questions

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Cutting holes

My Dremel 300 came without any instructions, so I had to puzzle out how to use the circle cutter. None of the images I managed to find on the Web or elsewhere were any help. I directed my attention to the "spike" on the circle cutter, and eventually I realized that it was on the wrong (top) side of the cutter--perhaps for safety's sake. When I removed it and positioned it on the bottom side of the cutter, things became clearer. The next thing was to locate the correct cutting edge. I had never used Dremel before, so I didn't recognize the cutting "bit", since it looked like a drill bit. The final problem was how to attach the circle cutter to the Dremel tool. I couldn't see any way of fixing the cutter to the tool. I thought perhaps there was something missing--a connector, perhaps. Eventually I found a reference on the Web to "removing the cap" on the tool. I hadn't noticed a "cap", but when I gave it a turn, it began to unscrew, so I knew I was in business. Finally II tried the attachment out on a piece of scrap timber, I found that it worked. A simple instruction manual would have saved me a lot of time. Also, I now discover that the Dremel 400 would be much more useful than the 300. Dremel don't seem to be very customer friendly. I can access the US site, but the UK and Germany website won't let me in!
