Dremel 3000: only running on high speed


There could be a few things contributing to that. To trouble shoot that for yourself, start by taking everything off the tool, remove any accessory, remove the chuck or the collet and collet nut. Turn the tool on. Let it run for a second. IF you detect something, that tool should be submitted to us for evaluation. The tolerances on our tools help us manufacture a tool that is not prone to run out, but we are smart enough to never say never. IF the tool by itself seems to be running smoothly, turn it off, add the chuck and secure it and turn the tool on. How is the tool running? If you detect a wobble, we may need to take a look at your chuck. When you thread that onto the tool, it should be closing evenly. IF you are using a collet and collet nut, do the same thing. Secure those on the tool and check it out. Finally, if the tool is operating properly with those elements in place, now consider your accessory. Properly seating an accessory is really a critical step to reducing or...

We have done some Dremel reviews in the past such as the Saw-Max, Dremel Trio and the Cordless 8200 to name a few. Now we are going to take a look at the Dremel 3000. What is so special about the new 3000? Well a couple of things. Dremel indicated the new 3000 is redesigned based on feedback from users. So let’s jump into the 3000. The Dremel we are looking at came in the kit 3000-2/28 meaning this is the 3000 model with 2 attachments and a 28 piece accessory kit.

The kit comes in a nice molded case. I wish the case was a tad bit bigger. While everything fits in the case, it does take a little time getting the cord wrapped up correctly to fit in the case nicely and close it. Maybe I am just a little impatient. The 28 piece accessory kit comes in a case of its own (still fits in the larger case). If you don’t own a Dremel, it’s a nice accessory kit to get you started. If you already have accessories from an older model, it’s a nice addition as the older bits still work. In...

Hi grenert, as its is, you can not tell the difference between a US and Mexican made 100, 200 or 300 [ they are modeled after the 275 series]. The technology is the same, its 20+ years old, so they are more than capable of making a duplicate.

They had their faults. If you buy a Mexican 100 and add an external speed control, run through all the speeds; I've exchanged 1 from Walmart that vibrated too much at just one speed 15k rpm, after return I got one that was right, they just didn't balance it right. OTAH, they do balance the motors on the 200 models and up properly which were made for variable speed.

US model had a large fault. In the early 1990s, when Dremel was bought by its parent I forget, they quietly added a plastic clutch to the entire model line that breaks under heavy load or age; the motor will lose speed and finally free spin but the shaft will not turn. The part is the 'flex coupler' and is $1 item, but you have to open the Dremel and replace it;most...

My last planned bit of BMOW case construction was a front-mounted LCD. This required cutting a hole for the LCD in the faceplate, as well as a gap for the wires to pass through the steel case front. Once again my trusty Dremel tool was put to use. This time I enlisted the help of my daughter to get some action photos, while I cut through the steel. Look at those sparks fly! Yee-ha!!!

I am a manly man, cutting steel! Unfortunately, moments after this photo was taken, the Dremel unexpectedly shut down. At first I thought maybe I’d blown a fuse, but the house outlet still works fine, and there’s no fuse I can find anywhere on the tool. I tried cleaning out the motor brushes, but that’s about all I could think to try. The Dremel manual doesn’t mention anything about what to do when the tool fails to turn on. I guess I killed it. At least I had the cut about 95% finished, and I may be able to finish it off by hand.

The Bottom Line

The Dremel 3000 High-Speed Rotary Tool is the next step in the evolution of the Dremel rotary tool line. This Dremel 3000 rotary tool has some useful features, including the EZ Twist integrated wrench/nose cap, which allows the user to loosen or tighten the collet and replace an accessory quickly and easily without the need for a collet wrench. The kit comes with a pair of attachments (a grinding and sanding guide as well as a cutting guide) and 28 accessories, all in a hard-shell plastic carrying case.

Out of all the Dremel rotary tools I've tested, this one is the best yet.

Our hand held Dremel© Multipro (Model 395) Rotary Drill. A trusty little workshop partner.

The variable speed motor controller (VSC) switch of hand held rotary drills are known to fail occasionally. This happened with our Dremel® rotary drilling tool recently. In our case, the failure of a small, inexpensive chip on an extremely simple VSC circuit board inside the tool’s switch housing meant that the tool was limited to ON and OFF options only from the extreme limits of the sliding variable speed switch.

The motor either ran full speed at 35,000 rpm or not at all. Leaving the tool this way would not be healthy over extended periods, as the full speed can quickly lead to overheating of the motor and reduced operating life. The high speed was also not a workable workshop option when using the tool on a mini CNC cutting machine, PCB drilling press, or even for hobby projects and sanding.

We decided to open up and DIY service our hand held Dremel® drill to find...

Rotary multitools are in the family of devices that you never really think you need, then once you have one wonder how you survived without. At their heart, they’re little more than a high-speed electric drill that you hold like a pencil; the wealth of accessories you can insert into the collet, though, enables them act like everything from routers and engravers to circular saws and polishers.

The full article can be found in The MagPi 52 and was written by Gareth Halfacree.

Dremel’s latest attempt to turn people on to the joys of rotary multitools comes in the form of three new bundles, timed for pre-Christmas release. The Three Star Kit is a variant on the existing bundles, offering a Dremel 3000 multitool, a small number of accessories, and a plastic desk holster for storage. The Four Star Kit, as reviewed, ups the ante to include a wider range of accessories and a plastic toolbox for storage. The Five Star Kit, meanwhile, tops the range out with a fuller accessory...

We have reviewed Dremel tools before- the 300 series, the Trio, and a cordless tool, however the company just keeps making a good thing better. The new Dremel 3000 power rotary tool incorporates a lot of smaller changes, and one big one- the nose cap now acts as a wrench for loosening tools.

The new tool runs 5,000 to 32,000 rpm, packs a 1.2 amp motor in the 20 ounce package and is compatible with most Dremel rotary tool accessories and attachments. Among the smaller changes are larger and better placed air vents (earlier models tended to be easy to block or blew hot air on your fingers), a more ergonomic grip (the grove shown above on the bottom is perfect for your little finger in many positions). The front end was reshaped to make the pencil grip easier, and the symmetrical housing allows ambidextrous use.

The big change, however, is a new nose cap that screws off as usual for various attachments, and is also shaped to act as a wrench to change tools...

The Dremel 3000 is the result of upgrading our most popular rotary tool using user-requested features to improve the tool’s design and ergonomics. The tool also features the EZ Twist™ nose cap with an integrated wrench that allows the nose cap to be used as a wrench to tighten accessories and eliminates the need for a separate wrench.

A more efficient fan design and side vents provide a cooler running tool making it comfortable for extended periods of use. The tool also features a symmetrical design including a trumpet-shaped nose cap to facilitate a pencil-grip tool hold. The ability to use all existing Dremel accessories and most attachments let the 3000 complete a wide range of applications including cutting, grinding, sanding, carving and polishing a variety of materials.

Use your Dremel for small cuts and detailing.

The Dremel is lightweight and easy to maneuver, making it deal for small detailing and little cuts. It can be difficult to give smooth, long curves, because you're mostly working free hand. But, you can make several straight cuts to get the kind of edge you're looking for and then even up the edge with the sanding bit.

Variable speed tool would not run at some speed settings.

The tool is a Dremel Model 395 Type 5. The original switch was red with 5 speeds, and is no longer available. I took a chance buying the blue switch which has about 9 click positions. The fact is that the switch is a simple rheostat and the 5 positions of the original switch and the 9 click positions of the blue switch are really inconsequential. The blue switch works fine in the Type 5 tool. The videos provided online are good.

Remove the metal bail that is used to hang the tool. Remove the collet nut and collet. Unscrew the plastic cap from the nose of the tool. Using a Torx T-10 driver, remove the four screws that hold the body shell together. With the switch facing down remove the upper half of the shell. Carefully lift out the armature/field coil/switch assembly. The rear ball bearing may have a rubber vibration cushion around it. If so, remove and save it. Remove the two caps that hold the brushes in, and...

Dremel has come out with a new generation of rotary tool, the 4300. You can find it at Amazon, and it should be available elsewhere this quarter.

So what’s so different or special about the new Dremel 4300?

Dremel has offered a 3-jaw attachment for a very long time, and it remains a popular accessory (from what I’ve seen). Each rotary tool works with a collet system as standard, with the 3-jaw attachment being an optional add-on.

The new Dremel 4300 rotary tool kit can be used with a collet or 3-jaw accessory. A 3-jaw chuck is included in both 4300 kits currently available, and the tool is shown equipped with the 3-jaw chuck in each and every product image.

It’s emphasized in the description to, as a Universal 3 Jaw Chuck.

I asked Dremel about this, and they said that:

Adding the 3-jaw chuck is all about simplicity…

Feedback from our consumers tells us that using the collet represents a significant learning curve for many...

My 395 tool will not run unless I press and hold down one of the brush caps.

is the soft coupling still available for this unit??

my dremel dosent have a serial # i think i might need a new switch, am told the switch is obsolete, its red with 5 speeds, am told a blue switch part # 2610912780 will work, can anyone tell me if this is true before i start buying parts?. thanks!

Hi old57ford,
There are a million switches for the 395 on Ebay for around $25.00.I'd try there first. Just put the part number in the Ebay search.Hope that helps.Good luck.

I have a Dremel 395 Type 4 that doesn't appear to have a 10 dgit number. The switch is red and looks much like the one shown here. Is it a good bet?

Hello 1221797,

If the switch you are replacing is red like the 2615294888 On-Off Switch. It is safe to say that it will work in your 395.
