As I have already posted, I am trying to put together a workshop. Last year I purchased all the tools etc but it got put on the back burner after losing Ken and having umpteen jobs to do on the cottage and in the garden, so the majority are out of guarantee even though still in the box. One of my purchases was a Dremel 3000, intended for the hobby/float making corner of my garage. I needed it today so I unboxed it. Problem 1, the accessories supplied with the unit were too small for the Collet provided, this was annoying as I couldn’t use it straight away. Problem 2, the flexible shaft wouldn’t turn if I tightened it fully (finger tight), slackening it off meant the bit turned but the end attached to the unit was ‘slopping about’ . Overall the whole thing felt cheap and flimsy. Has anyone on here had any of these sort of problems or have I just got a rogue machine.
