Yes - and the adapter to allow it to fit in Proxxon Drill stand! No real problems although I think it may need a clean and oil as the max capacity deems to have reduced. I use to get a 3.2 mm bit in easily, now it requires a bit of force.

I bought a cheap version one and for some reason it kept on falling off when I applied pressure to what I was grinding or sanding. I then bought a genuine Dremmel chuck and that has been fine with no problems at all. I do find that they work best on the flexi drive like in Andy's picture but again I donít know why.

I have replaced all my collet chucks for 3 jaw chucks as it makes life a lot easier just make sure you get the correct thread as I believe there are more than one standard size.

I have owned one for over a decade.  zero issues, it has literally outlived 3 real dremel tools and one non dremel brand tool.

I bought a Dremel.... maybe another brand but it was out of balance but didn't realize at first.
Eventually  bought a replacement chuck... totally smooth after that!   >:-o

HI all well my third chuck turned up an the jaws  don't work an also the chuck wont fit my dremmell thread  from the uk here an someone said some have different threads  at the time I ordered these chucks I dint know about that  but now got no.4 & 5 comin from china as they cheapies see what happen to them

I seem to recall having one that didnt fit my particular collection of dremels at the time, worst comes to worse you can fit the chuck then using a round rattail file run the drill over the file, slowly shutting the jaws, this should at least true up the jaws. I had to do this on the chuck of one drill as i was using 0.7mm drill bits and the out of balance was enough to break the drills.

Ive gone through two dremmel chucks, The first locked up and the only way to use it was knock it after loosening up, the second just plain dropped apart.. Now on my third and I dont consider me a rough user

Just oredered a couple to see if they are any better than the poor (my opinion) dremmel provided chucks...
Title: Re: dremel chuck
Post by: Andyn on November 08, 2019, 01:19:54 PM
It's odd, at work we have about 15-20 Dremels that are quite a few years old, mainly 8200's, all with the Dremel official drill style chuck on them, no issues at all and these things get ABUSED. Recently we ordered four new 8220's for new starters, along with the chucks to go with them. Two of them would not fit at all, even on existing 8200's. Seems their manufacturing has changed.

Having said that, if you've managed to break one of the old style chucks then I don't know what to tell you...

HI Pete have you by any chance got your new chucks yet ? an if you have do they work ok ?
chris
Title: Re: dremel chuck
Post by: Pete C on November 16, 2019, 11:34:44 AM
Well Ordered the chucks from ebay and it turns out that most on ebay are 7mmx.075 thread (WRONG TYPE ) which I bought.
The correct thread for my dremel and Parkside rotary tools after checking with dremel are 8mm x .075 thread.


Most of the keyless chucks that are listed on ebay are 7mm x.075 thread ...  which is what I purchase (x3) but I somehow got 1 correct chuck in the 3 I orderd
A fluke ! so I have 2 chucks with the 7mm thread and 1 chuck with 8mm thread (the correct one).


So if you people got to ebay like most of us do double check your ordering the 8mmx.075 thread or like me you will end up with a few duff chucks that I have now idea what tool they will fit...


I have noticed on ebay that if you search for 8mm  keyless chuck in rotary tools most the pop up cheap are the short type... so I will now order two short type and two  long type (slightly more chas folks) in the correct thread (8mm x.075mm -- confirmed by dremel)
