WARNING Read
may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term “power
tool” in all of the warnings listed below refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool
or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Work area safety
Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) must be used
to supply the power to your tool. GFCI
and personal protection devices like electrician’s rubber gloves and footwear will further enhance your personal safety.
Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power
tools create sparks which may ignite the
dust or fumes.
Personal safety
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not use a power tool
while you are tired or under the influence
of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious personal
injury.
Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distractions
can cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety
Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs
and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Safety equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an
increased risk of electric shock if your body
is earthed or grounded.
Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the
switch is in the off-position before plugging in. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or plugging in power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
Remove any adjusting key or wrench
before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or a key left attached to a rotating
part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the
cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor
use reduces the risk of electric shock.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
Do not use AC only rated tools with a DC
power supply. While the tool may appear
to work, the electrical components of the AC
rated tool are likely to fail and create a hazard to the operator.
If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection
facilities, ensure these are connected
and properly used. Use of these devices
can reduce dust-related hazards.
If operating the power tool in damp locations is unavoidable a Ground Fault

Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil
and grease. Slippery hands cannot safely
control the power tool.
Page 3
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are
easier to control.
Power tool use and care
Use the power tool, accessories and tool
bits etc., in accordance with these
instructions and in the manner intended
for the particular type of power tool, taking into account the working conditions
and the work to be performed. Use of the
power tool for operations different from
those intended could result in a hazardous
situation.
Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it was designed.
Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power tool
that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from the
power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power
tool accidentally.
Use clamps or other practical way to
secure and support the workpiece to a
stable platform. Holding the work by hand
or against your body is unstable and may
lead to loss of control.
Service
Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that the
safety of the power tool is maintained.
Develop a periodic maintenance schedule for your tool. When cleaning a tool be
careful not to disassemble any portion of
the tool since internal wires may be misplaced or pinched or safety guard return
springs may be improperly mounted.
Certain cleaning agents such as gasoline,
carbon tetrachloride, ammonia, etc. may
damage plastic parts.
Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these
instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power tools operation. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained power tools.

ning over rated speed can fly apart and
cause injury.
If cutting into existing walls or other blind
areas where electrical wiring may exist is
unavoidable, disconnect all fuses or circuit
breakers feeding this worksite.
Do not operate the flexible shaft with a
sharp bend. Over bending the shaft can
generate excessive heat on the jacket or

piece in one hand and the tool in the other
hand while in use. Allow for sufficient
space, at least 6", between your hand and
the spinning bit. Round material such as
dowel rods, pipes or tubing have a tendency
to roll while being cut, and may cause the bit
to “bite” or jump toward you. Clamping a
small workpiece allows you to use both
hands to control the tool.
Inspect your workpiece before cutting.
When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan your work so it will not slip
and pinch the bit and be torn from your
hand. For example, if carving wood, make
sure there are no nails or foreign objects in
the workpiece. Nails or foreign objects can
cause the bit to jump.
Never start the tool when the bit is
engaged in the material. The bit cutting
edge may grab the material causing loss of
control of the cutter.
Avoid bouncing and snagging the wheel,
especially when working corners, sharp
edges etc. This can cause loss of control
and kick-back.
The direction of feed with the bit into the
material when carving, routing or cutting
is very important. Always feed the bit into
the material in the same direction as the
cutting edge is exiting from the material
(which is the same direction as the chips
are thrown). Feeding the tool in the wrong
direction, causes the cutting edge of the bit to
climb out of the work and pull the tool in the
direction of this feed.
If the workpiece or bit becomes jammed
or bogged down, turn the tool “OFF” by
the switch. Wait for all moving parts to
stop and unplug the tool, then work to
free the jammed material. If the switch to
the tool is left “ON” the tool could restart
unexpectedly causing serious personal
injury.
Do not leave a running tool unattended,
turn power off. Only when tool comes to a
complete stop it is safe to put it down.
Do not grind or sand near flammable
materials. Sparks from the wheel could
ignite these materials.
Do not touch the bit or collet after use.
After use the bit and collet are too hot to be
touched by bare hands.
Regularly clean the tool's air vents with
compressed air. Excessive accumulation of
powdered metal inside the motor housing
may cause electrical failures.
sories. You may unexpectedly cause the tool
to start leading to serious personal injury.
Be aware of the switch location, when
placing the tool down or when picking the
tool up. You may accidentally activate the
switch.
Always hold the hand piece firmly in your
hands during the start-up. The reaction
torque of the motor, as it accelerates to full
speed, can cause the shaft to twist.
Always wear safety goggles and dust
mask. Use only in well ventilated area.
Using personal safety devices and working in
safe environment reduces risk of injury.
After changing the bits or making any
adjustments, make sure the collet nut and
any other adjustment devices are securely tightened. Loose adjustment device can
unexpectedly shift, causing loss of control,
loose rotating components will be violently
thrown.
Do not reach in the area of the spinning
bit. The proximity of the spinning bit to your
hand may not always be obvious.
Allow brushes to run at operating speed
for at least one minute before using
wheel. During this time no one is to stand
in front or in line with the brush. Loose
bristles or wires will be discharged during the
run-in time.
Wire and bristle brushes must never be
operated at speeds greater than
15,000/min. Direct the discharge of the
spinning wire brush away from you.
Small particles and tiny wire fragments may
be discharged at high velocity during the
“cleaning” action with these brushes and may
become imbedded in your skin. Bristles or
wires will be discharged from the brush at
high speeds.
Carefully handle both the tool and individual grinding wheels to avoid chipping or
cracking. Install a new wheel if tool is
dropped while grinding. Do not use a
wheel that may be damaged. Fragments
from a wheel that bursts during operation will
fly away at great velocity possibly striking you
or bystanders.
Never use dull or damaged bits. Sharp
bits must be handled with care. Damaged
bits can snap during use. Dull bits require
more force to push the tool, possibly causing
the bit to break.
Use clamps to support workpiece whenever practical. Never hold a small work4

SAFETY RULES FOR ROTARY TOOL (CONTINUED)
Do not allow familiarity gained from frequent use of your rotary tool to become
commonplace. Always remember that a
careless fraction of a second is sufficient to
inflict severe injury.
Do not alter or misuse tool. Any alteration
or modification is a misuse and may result in
serious personal injury.
This product is not intended for use as a
dental drill, in human or veterinary medical applications. Serious injury may result.
When using the steel saws, cutoff wheels,
high speed cutters or tungsten carbide
cutters, always have the work securely
clamped. Never attempt to hold the work
with one hand while using any of these
accessories. The reason is that these
wheels will grab if they become slightly canted in the groove, and can kickback causing
loss of control resulting in serious injury. Your
second hand should be used to steady and
guide the hand holding the tool. When a cutoff wheel grabs, the wheel itself usually
breaks. When the steel saw, high speed cutters or tungsten carbide cutter grab, it may
jump from the groove and you could lose
control of the tool.
dust created by
! WARNING Some
power drilling and other
construction activities, contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects
or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• Lead from lead-based paints,
• Crystalline silica from bricks and cement
and other masonry products, and
• Arsenic and chromium from chemically
treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies,
depending on how often you do this type of
work. To reduce your exposure to these
chemicals, work in a well ventilated area, and
work with approved safety equipment, such
as those dust masks that are specially
designed to filter out microscopic particles.

OPERATION
Learning To Use the Rotary Tool
Getting the most out of your rotary tool is a
matter of learning how to let the speed and
the feel of the tool in your hands work for you.
The first step in learning to use the rotary
tool is to get the “feel”
of it. Hold it in your
hand and feel its
weight and balance.
Feel the taper of the
housing. This taper permits the tool to be
grasped much like a pen or pencil. The
unique comfort grip on the nose allows for
added comfort and control during use.
Always hold the tool
! WARNING away from your face.
Accessories can be damaged during
handling and can fly apart as they come
up to speed. This is not common, but it
does happen.
When holding tool, do not
! CAUTION cover the air vents with
your hand. Blocking the air vents could
cause the motor to overheat.
IMPORTANT! Practice on scrap material first
to see how the tool’s high-speed action performs. Keep in mind that your rotary tool will
perform best by allowing the speed, along
with the correct Dremel™ accessory and
attachment, to do the work for you. Do not
put pressure on the tool during use, if possible.
Instead, lower the spinning accessory lightly
to the work surface and allow it to touch the
point at which you want to begin.
Concentrate on guiding the tool over the
work using very little pressure from your
hand. Allow the accessory to do the work.
For best control in close work, grip the rotary
tool like a pencil between your thumb and
forefinger.
The “golf” grip method is used for more aggressive operations such as grinding or cutting.
Usually it is better to make a series of passes with the tool rather than to do the entire
job with one pass. A gentle touch gives the
best control and reduces the chance for
error.

OPERATION (CONTINUED)
Operating Speeds
Set the Speed Control to the desired setting.
To achieve the best results when working
with different materials, set the variable
speed control to suit the job. To select the
right speed for the accessory in use, practice
with scrap material first.
On/Off Switch
NOTE: Speed is affected by voltage changes. A
reduced incoming voltage will slow the RPM of the
tool, especially at the lowest setting. If your tool
appears to be running slowly, increase the speed
setting accordingly. The tool may not start at the
lowest switch setting in areas where outlet voltage
is less than 120 volts. Simply move the speed setting to a higher position to begin operation.
The 300 Series Rotary Tool switch settings
are marked “near” the speed control switch
on the front tool label. Refer to the Speed
Settings chart on pages 12 thru 14 to help
determine the proper speed for the material
being worked on and the accessory to use.
Most jobs can be accomplished using the
tool at the highest setting. However, certain
materials (some plastics and metals) can be
damaged by high-speed generated heat and
should be worked on at relatively slow
speeds.
Slow speed operation (15,000 RPM or less)
is usually best for polishing operations
employing the felt polishing accessories, delicate wood carving and fragile model parts.
All brushing applications require lower
speeds to avoid wire discharge from the
holder. Let the performance of the tool do the
work for you when using lower speed settings.
Higher speeds are better for drilling, carving,
cutting, routing, shaping, cutting dadoes or
rabbets in wood. Hardwoods, metals and
glass require high speed operation also.
The settings for approximate RPM’s are:
Switch Setting
Speed Range RPM
1-2
10,000-14,000
3-4
15,000-19,000
5-6
20,000-24,000
25,000-29,000
7-8
30,000-37,000
9-10
Some guidelines regarding tool speed:
• There is no accessory for the Dremel
Rotary tool that will drill or cut glass.
• Plastic and other materials that melt at low
temperatures should be cut at low speeds.
• Polishing, buffing and cleaning with a wire
brush must be done at speeds not greater
than 15,000 RPM to prevent damage to the
brush and your material.
• Wood should be cut at high speed.
• Iron or steel should be cut at high speed.
• If a high speed steel cutter starts to vibrate,
it usually indicates that it is running too
slow.
• Aluminum, copper alloys, lead alloys, zinc
alloys and tin may be cut at various
speeds, depending on the type of cutting
being done. Use a paraffin (not water) or
other suitable lubricant on the cutter to prevent the cut material from adhering to the
cutter teeth.
NOTE: Increasing pressure on the tool is not
the answer when it is not performing properly. Try a different accessory or speed setting
to achieve the desired result. Please refer to
the following Speed Setting charts or simply

WARNING Preventative
performed by unautho-
A
rized personnel may result in misplacing
of internal wires and components which
could cause serious hazard. We recommend that all tool service be performed by
a Dremel™ Service Facility.
To avoid injury from unex! WARNING pected starting or electrical shock, always remove plug from wall
outlet before performing service or
cleaning.
Carbon Brushes
The brushes in your tool have been engineered for many hours of dependable service.
To prepare the brushes for use, run the tool
at full speed for 5 minutes under no load.
This will properly “seat” the brushes, and
extend the life of the tool.
To maintain peak efficiency of the motor,
examine the brushes for wear every 40-50
hours.
Using the tool with worn
! CAUTION brushes will permanently
damage the motor.
Use only original Dremel™ replacement
brushes.’
Inspect the rotary tool brushes after 40-50
hours of use. If the rotary tool runs erratically, loses power, or makes unusual noises
check the brushes for wear and possible
replacement. Remember: brushes in the
rotary tool are similar to oil in a car; the more
you check/service, the better the performance.
Follow these steps to check/change the rotary
tool brushes:
1 With the power cord unplugged, place
the tool on a clean surface. Use the tool
wrench as a screwdriver to remove the
brush caps in a counter-clockwise
direction (Figure A).
Removing Brush Cover
2. Remove the brushes from the tool by
pulling on the spring that is attached to
the carbon brush. If the brush is less
than 1/8” long and the surface of the
brush that touches the commutator is
rough or pitted, the carbon brushes
should be replaced. Be sure to check
both brushes (Figure B).
B
Removing/Inspecting Brushes
3. If one brush is worn, you should replace
both brushes for better performance of
your rotary tool. Remove the spring
from the brush, throw away the old
brush and place the spring on a new
brush.
15

Cleaning The Tool
4. Place the carbon brush and spring back
into the tool, there is only one way the
brush will fit back into the tool.
5. Replace the brush caps onto the tool by
turning the cap in a clockwise direction.
To tighten, use the wrench, but DO NOT
OVER TIGHTEN!
After replacing the brushes the tool should
be run at no load; place it on a clean surface
and run it freely at full speed for 5 minutes
before loading (or using) the tool. This will
allow the brushes to “seat” properly and will
give you more hours of life from each set of
brushes. This will also extend the life of your
tool since the commutator surface will also
wear better and longer.
Ventilation openings and switch levers must
be kept clean and free of foreign matter. Do
not attempt to clean by inserting pointed
objects through openings.
The tool may be
cleaned with compressed air. Always
wear safety goggles
when cleaning tool
with compressed air.
There is no need to lubricate the Dremel™
rotary tool.
Certain cleaning agents
! CAUTION and solvents will damage
plastic parts. Some of these are: gasoline,
carbon tetrachloride, chlorinated cleaning solvents, ammonia and household
detergents that contain ammonia.
Clean the “soft grip” areas of the tool using a
damp cloth. Tougher soiled areas may
require more than one wipe application to get
clean.

and then slowly bring it to a 90° angle to
begin the cut.
Multipurpose Cutting Bit
Mandrels
Small Screw Mandrel
A mandrel is a shank with a threaded or
screw head used with polishing accessories,
cutting wheels, sanding discs and polishing
points. The mandrel is a permanent shank,
allowing for replacement of the worn head
when necessary.
Screw Mandrel
For use with the felt polishing
tip and felt polishing wheels.
Mandrel has a small screw
1/8" shank
at the tip and is used with
emery and fiberglass cutting
wheels, sanding discs and
polishing wheels.

Tougher than aluminum oxide
points, these are made especially for use on
hard materials such as glass and ceramics.
These grinding stones
1/8" shank
come round, pointed or flat
and are made of aluminum
oxide. Use them for every possible grinding
operation: sharpening lawn mower blades,
screwdriver tips, knives, scissors, chisels and
other cutting tools. Use to remove flash from
metal castings, deburring any kind of metal.
These grinding stones can be resharpened
with a dressing stone. In machine shops,
high speed drills and cutters are normally
ground with aluminum oxide wheels.

ACCESSORIES (continued)
Engraving Cutters
Engraving cutters come in a
3/32" shank
wide variety of sizes and
shapes and are used for intricate work on
ceramics (greenware), wood carvings, jewelry and scrimshaw. They are often used in
making complicated printed circuit boards.
They should not be used on steel and very
hard materials, but are good for use on
wood, plastic and soft metals.
High speed cutters are
1/8" shank
used in carving, cutting
and slotting wood, plastics
and soft metals (such as aluminum, copper
and brass). Made of high quality steel.
Structured Tooth Tungsten Carbide Cutters
Tungsten Carbide Cutters
1/8" shank
Tungsten carbide cutters
are long-lived cutters for
use on hardened steel, fired
ceramics and other very hard materials. They
can be used for engraving on tools and garden equipment.
1/8" shank
These cutters feature fast cutting needlesharp teeth for greater material removal with
minimum loading. Use on fiberglass, wood,
plastic, epoxy and rubber.
Brushing Pressure
Wire Brushes
•. The tips of a wire brush do the work.
Operate the brush with the lightest pressure so only the tips of the wires come in
contact with the work surface.
•. If heavier pressure is used, the wires will
become overstressed, resulting in a wiping action. If this continues, the life of the
brush will be shortened by fatigue.
•. Apply the brush to the work surface so
the majority of the brush face makes full
contact. Applying the edge or side of the
brush to the work surface will result in
wire breakage and shortened brush life.
Never use wire brushes at
! CAUTION speeds greater than
15,000 rpm. Refer to Speed Settings
(pages 10-12) for proper tool and setting.
Three different shapes
of wire brushes are
available in three different materials: stainless
1/8" shank
steel, brass and carbon
wire. Stainless steel
brushes perform well on pewter, aluminum,
stainless steel and other metals, without
leaving rust. Brass brushes are non-sparking
and softer than steel, making them good for
use on soft metals like gold, copper and
brass. Carbon wire brushes are good for
general purpose cleaning.
Bristle Brushes
1/8" shank
Bristle brushes are
used for cleaning tools on
silverware, jewelry and antiques. The three
shapes make it possible to get into tight corners and other difficult spaces. They can be
used with polishing compound for faster
cleaning or polishing.
Aluminum Oxide Abrasive
Wheels
Used to remove paint, deburr
metal, polish stainless steel
and other metals. Available in
medium grit.
Grinding Wheel
Used for deburring, removing
rust, and general purpose grinding. Use with Mandrel #402.
