Dremel Multi Chuck,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dremel 2615448632 Keyless Quick Change Multi Tool Chuck 4486 (DIY & Tools)I have read all the reviews, I must be missing something as I am unable to attach it to my Dremel, are you supposed to leave a Collete in the Dremel so you can push it onto the spindle, but even so just cant get it to attach, would welcome some advice as there were no instructions with the item, so for me a total waste of time.

No, you've got to remove the old nut & collet completely before screwing the chuck into the spindle. The threadded Dremel spindle is hollow, and if you look inside the back of the chuck, you'll see it's got a ring which fits into the centre of the shaft. It's easier to remove & attach the collet nut or chuck if you hold in the spindle locking button.
Hope this helps,

Mr. R. B. Hughes says:
Hi, yes I have tried this to no avail, just checked the gap on my Dremel and the chuck there is a difference the chuck being smaller so it is impossible for it to fit, my Dremal is one of the original ones I just think that is the reason for it not fitting.

Just how old is your Dremel? One of mine is an old Multi 770 7.2V from the '90s, and the chuck fits that ok. The threadded shaft is 7.02 mm in diameter on all my Dremels. The hole in the shaft is 4.26mm. James.
