How to get rid of lateral play in a Dremel's shaft!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, yesterday I was dremeling wih my dad's old dremel 500.
I was using the reinforced cutoff discs, and since they're quite heavy they don't like the fact that the dremel had some play in the shaft, and the dremel was making a horrible buzzing noise and vibrating pretty hard.

I decided to open it up and see if I need to replace bearings or something and found out that the bearing housing had just gotten larger over time! So making the bearing bigger would fix he problem!
Steps:
1. Unscrew the T15 screws no one side of the dremel.
2. Remove the motor assembly and such out of the cases.
3. Put a few layers of painters/masking tape around the front and back bearing. Cut it as wide as the bearing is.
4. Put it together, make sure the shaft spins easily.
5. Carefully plug it in and check that it works!

I would add some pictures here, but seriously, this was so easy IMO you don't need them. I did this in 10 minutes and my dremel is spinning without any buzz or annoying noise, just humming.

I hope this will help some other modders

Cool thanks for the tip. Life would be so boring without my dremel.
