I have a similar chuck I can use with my cordless screw driver, to

hold a drill bit. The inner claws hold a drill bit allowing me to use the

the screw driver to drill a hole.



So I expected the MultiPro Keyless Chuck to work the same way. The chuck screwed onto my Dremel with no problem, but I can't get the

inner claws to close down on a bit and hold it. My Dremel is over 20 years old, and that might be the problem.



I just purchased it through Amazon and need to know if I'm missing

something, or if I should return it.

I wish someone would answer this question. My Dremel is about 7 years old, and I am having the same problem.

I checked back through my files and the original Multipro chuck came out in 1999 so the chuck has been around for abourt 11 years so it should fit a dremel that is 7 years old harder to say about one that is older. I know with the original chuck (the gray one that was not compatible wityh the flex shaft unlike the newer black chuck) the chuck closes furhter as you twist it onto the shaft. A little wd-40 or other oil might help hard to say.

My bit is frozen up i cannot get it to move, I tried oiling it up then vice grips then used a little torch to heat it up trying to move it.With no luck then I had file the nut because I'm destroying the metal when it pops off. I'm tossing this in the trash and getting another.

It worked great for along time. I liked it a lot on my Model395s don't care for it on my MultiPro Cordless. Alas I have no idea what happened If i over tightened it or it just locked up and died on me.



Maybe thats what yours is doing too?

I've got an old Multi-Pro too as well as a new 4000.



The 4000 came with the new EZ495 EZ Twist Nose Cap which can be retrofitted to most existing Dremels so that you don't need the Wrench (spanner) to undo the Collet Nut or Drive Adaptor for the Flex Shaft etc.



It just replaces the existing nose piece. It isn't very expensive either at under $10 & really works great.



If you aren't continually swapping between different size shank tools then the EZ Twist Nose Cap makes using the Collets as easy as using the Drill Chuck & the tools are held better, don't vibrate as much, & don't work loose. The occasional swapping of a collet doesn't take too much time.



To use the EZ Twist Nose Cap you just unscrew it. It comes forward off the mounting thread & then the internal socket fits onto the Collet Nut to allow you to loosen or tighten it.



Simple & easy & nothing to go wrong. Good that you can upgrade an older tool.



I've used it on my old Multi-Pro & I can confirm it works great on it.



I've used the Dremel Chucks too & have had to throw a couple of them away over the years. They do bind up sometimes & I normally found it easier to replace then repair them.



Regards,

Brian.

****o this is Beth from Dremel.  There are MANY messages that are referring to our Dremel Chuck.  The one thing I want to say is that our "current chuck" that we have, which is the #4486, doesn't fit with ALL of the Dremel tools that we have made over the years (80+ years).  The threading of the tools had changed many years ago, so, this might not be the proper fit for your older tool.  To make sure, I would always encourage that before you purchase something, come straight to the "Experts" and ask our Dremel Customer Service Representative your question.  We can be reached on our toll free phone number of 1-800-437-3635, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST.
