I'm a novice who has read the manual but can't seen to understand how to put on the attachments. It seems simple enough based on what I understand about inserting drill bits into a drill.



It looks like from the videos on the website that you simply loosen the nose wrench to make the opening wider to insert the shaft of the accessory. But that doesn't happen.



What am I missing?

Hi Julia:  This is Beth from Dremel Customer Service.  In referring to your "Operating/Safety Manual" that came with your 8220 tool, go to page 10.  It talks about the "EZ Twist" wrench/Nose cap.  Basically, if wanting to insert a bit into your tool... the first thing you'll need to do is "loosen" your collet nut on the end of your tool.  You will just "unwind" the EZ Twist piece (refer to the pictures on page 10), off of the tool completely.  Inside this piece there is a little silver colored insert piece... this is what has to be lined up (hold it over) your collet nut.  Once it all lines up (like a puzzle piece), then hold your shaft lock button (on the top of the tool) down, and then to "open" the collet nut which will allow you to put a bit into it, then turn it counter-clockwise to loosen it.  (Put bit in tool then, hold shaft lock button down again and then use your EZ Twist and this time go clockwise to tighten it).  If you are still having difficulty doing this, then I would highly recommend you call our Customer Service Center where a representative could give you guidance.  Please call on our toll free phone number of 1-800-437-3635, Monday-Friday, 7:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST.  Any of us would be happy to assist you!

Ha! I can't believe it but I can answer this question. lol! I'm also a novice, just got mine last night in fact.



I had a problem with it too, but when I threw my hands up in the air in frustration, I decided to try and force the tool through that nut hole.



Guess what? It worked! There is another piece inside that nut that should come out, which I wasn't understanding by reading the manual. Once I saw it, I realized what the manual was talking about. When you look at it, see that silver ring around its inside? That's the piece that comes out.



I think since it was packaged with a machine, it's stuffed in there real good. Just push really hard from the top to the bottom; don't cover the bottom though, like sit it on a table, because you want it to pop out and you'll block it if you do. Once I got that bad boy out of there, it was easy to remove after that.



If you have a male friend, have him try it. I managed it though and I'm a weakling.



Good luck!
