    Well it seems I made a li'l mistake while switching out collets on my Dremel Stylus. I forgot to put the new collet in before putting the collet nut on and locked it- now the collet nut is stuck. I e-mailed dremel's site, but it says it'll take two business days to reply to my e-mail :\

    Does anyone know if this is something that is fixable by hand? I've opened the thing up, but I can't figure out what I would need to do :[

    yeah, I would say two pair of vice grips to get that off. Maybe some liquid wrench would help too.

    Thanks guys. I managed to get it off. I'm sorta new to the kitbashing, and the tools with it D: What I had to do was lock it in place and then work at it with some big ol' pliers and unscrew it.

    You think the manual would mention something about this sort of scenario :\ Sadly it happened again when I had an attachment in, and the attachment got ruined in the proccess (a grinding wheel, fook)
