  • 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

                        Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                        Thanks to all for the kind comments.

                        Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                        From my side I'm really pleased with how my kitchen extension idea worked out....

                        Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

                        The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

                        WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
