  • Flex Shaft for Dremel

    Hi Everyone, I was wondering where would be the best deal on a flex shaft for a dremel model 395. I can't find one in the local stores. They all say they would have to order it. I thought that I would ask you all and order one myself. Thanks, Steve

    This seems like a good price, Steve. At least compared with the prices I've seen round here where the flexible shafts are over C$30 ... http://www.ehobbytools.com/index.htm...tml&lang=en-us

      ... or you could get a non-dremel rotary tool complete with flexible shaft and loads of accessories here .... for less than the normal price of a dremel flexishaft.

      I got one recently and it seems to work just fine.

          Found mine at local Wal-Mart on sale for $10. Lucky find as I wan't looking for it that day.
          And I do believe the 395 is what I have. I guess that would be more of a gloat and of no help to you. Sorry.

            Steve, I just looked and there are several currently listed on e-bay. It might be worth exploring that option. Just watch the shipping costs. A lot of sellers make their money on the shipping cost and not the actual price of the product.

              I don't remember what model Dremel I have, but I ordered mine from Amazon. They have quite an extensive selection of Dremel goodies.

              Who would of thunk it?

                Steve I have seen them at home depot but I got mine when I got the dremel on one and the other one I have had since my last shop and I closed it in 96- I did buy a rechargeable rotary tool from harbor freight that had a flex shaft and a light and 2 battiers for $19. I know I have seen the flex shafts here for around $20 but what you say is much to high. Did you look under Dremel and see about them there-I know they have them .and they would be so much cheaper than anywhere else .I have to get the brushes for my XP through them and they are cheaper than anywhere.

                  If you lived near me, I'd sell you mine really cheap. I never use the dreml flex shaft because I have a real carving tool with a professional flex shaft.

                    I couldn't work my segmentation or intarsia ( today I am using different woods together) without my flex shaft. That is how I do 95% of my contour sanding. besides they are great for not having to hold the tool itself-something very important to someone with not much strength.

                      Thanks Everyone, I ordered a non-Dremel tool with accessories and 36" flex shaft from Northern Tools with free shipping and no tax. About $10 more than the flex shaft alone from Dremel. Steve

                        by Rolf
                        I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                        I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                        I used...

                        If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                        After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                        I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                        Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                        Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
