Help with Dremel!

So I'm wanting to use my Dremel to chop off my fender. However, I ran into a difficulty.. I have a cordless 4.8V Dremel model 754. Also, I bought a pack of cutting wheels separately (the wheels with the tiny holes in the center). However, when I try to assemble the cutting wheel with the screw mandrel, the screw of the mandrel is just too big and will not penetrate the cutting wheel center. What am I doing wrong? I can't help but feel like a straight up fool not being able to get this right.

I even provided a picture. Thanks for the helps guys haha..

(From L to R: 1) the screw that just won't fit through the cutting wheel 2) the cutting wheel 3) mandrel with screw-in top

if you really want too, you could just drill out the center of the cutting wheel a little bit so the screw will fit.

take a flathead screw driver and lightly clean the mounting hole. then thread the mounting screw into the cutting/sanding wheel to mount it to the dremel.

If the hole is drilled out it can slip and break alot quicker vs a secure mount.

i end up w/ these all the time at work on accident. you can open the hole up but make sure you are aware that its going to break and its going to hit you in the face. the laws of physics say so.
about 3 out of 5 work ok for me when i do this.

that does not look like a cut off mandrel, it looks like a sanding drum mandrel. the cut off wheel mandrel uses a smaller pointed screw.

that is definitely the shaft for the sanding drum. the shaft for the disks does not have the step about a cm below where the screw sits (this is to hold the drum in place). dont try to modify a sanding disk in order to fit it onto the shaft though, this could cause it to crack and explode when you rev the tool up to speed. be sure to wear those safety goggles...

be careful out there. the right tool exists and is really cheap, especially compared to a hospital bill!

lots of em






first off, the cordless will just you off, need a plug in dremel.
secondly, when cutting metal, the small disc will dissapeer in a blink, go buy the quick release head (approx $3.00) and then get the cutting wheels to fit that head, (5 disc for $10.) these discs are awesome and will cut the fender no problem and they wear well.
call if you have any questions or need help with it. 832-818-3905

the reinforced cutting disks will last much longer than those "med." or "heavy-duty" disks
